April 2021 Favourite Uploads

A few days ago, I had reason to go into London for the first time in over a year.. even though I didn't get to wander around with a camera all day like I might in the past, I still got a few pictures on the underground which I liked.

This is about 4pm in the middle of the week...   ... not quite as busy as I'm used to!

American Ayres S2R-G10 Turbo Thrush aircraft modified for agricultural use like crop dusting or topdressing.

To prove that tagging is not always boring, my research has shown that in the States, a special version was made for narcotics eradication, featuring an armoured cockpit and engine to protect against hostile ground fire.

I used to see these in the agricultural area where I lived all the time- that same type- and wondered what happened to them. Turned out aerial spraying was banned in the EU years ago because of the danger from overspray.

Always sit on your flak jacket, the (Russian) helicopter crews taught me. 😁

Thank you, Steve. As I think I mentioned before, when I began uploading these images shot in 2009, I had more failures than passes. That was back in the day when a failure put one in a 6 week hold on uploads. A few uploads passed, but I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong on the others, because I was trying to be ultra-careful. I was shooting Nikon D300 and mostly the great Nikon 24-70 lens. A few from a Canon G9 camera that didn’t fare well. A lot of CA and some softness.  I do remember that there seemed to be some angst on the forum about QC being too harsh. Probably more me than them.

I finally just quit uploading from that trip.

Now I’m processing these images from scratch and they are flying through. Even some from the little camera. The thing is, I wasn’t  using LR back then. The whole CC program is so much better than then. CA removal, noise control and all of that. Plus I think I’m more discerning now.

Whatever, I’ll take it.

This barn in New England was beginning to sink into the ground on the far side, but I loved the history I imagined.

This has happen to me.

To fix it, edit your post, right-click on image and set the vertical and horizontal pixels to taste.

Hope this helps.

There's a tick box: keep the original ratio or something like that.

The bigger question is: why should we need to do this? Who wants their photos squished?  Seems like keeping the original ratio should be the default
