    A couple pics from LBA this afternoon 26/01/06 15:20 till 16:15

    Hi guys

    Heres a few pic's i took up at Leeds/Bradford Airport this afternoon from the cemetry. Landings on Runway 14 today with real good sun light as well for once. By the way i've just aquired Adobe Photoshop CS2 so these are my first attempt at doing some good photo editing.














    And thats your lot for today.

        I saw that KLM F100, was very nice. I was at the bus stop at the time.

        Very nice mate. Were you by the tunnel by any chance? I'll be trying that spot next week.

          Thanks guys

          A330-300: Very nice mate. Were you by the tunnel by any chance?
          I was up near the cemetry today, By the 14 Loop.

          Mark L: Great stuff, are you going to be about tomorrow?
          No Can't get up tomorrow Mark. Got a small day job to do. I'll be up on Saturday though. Need to get some photos of the Austrian Arrows Fokker 70, Thomsonfly B737-800 and the Astraeus B737-700.

                  A small matter of insignificance to silly 'photographers' like myself, who will be spending most of tomorrow sat on the wall of the Cemetary

                        Nice photo!

                        Some tips on photoshop. This is the order I normally use when editing photos (names of functions may be slightly different as I am translating from Dutch from a slightly older version of PS):

                        Leveling
                        Press the U and you can draw lines. Draw the line paralel to a line you know 100% certain to run straight and vertical (a house, lamp post etc). Then go to: Picture - Rotate Canvas - Choose rotation. The computer will select the right amount of levelling to make the line you draw perfectly vertical.

                        Picture - Edits (adaptation/changes???) - colourtone/saturation (CTRL-U)
                        Change the colourtone and the saturation. Usually a slight increase is best. The brightness depends on the weather. Bad weather needs more brightness, good weather needs less brightness.

                        Picture - Edits - Brightness/Contrast
                        A bit more contrast usually works best.

                        Picture - Edits - Curves (CTRL-M)
                        Great tool to make dull colours a bit more vibrant. Remember you can also select the colour you want to change. Mostly I find that a bit more blue works quite nicely. My lense is (or rather was since it passed away) rather cheap and tends to make pictures a bit greyish at long zoom due to fog/smog/glare. This tool should remove the worst of it.

                        Filter - Sharpening - Unsharp Mask
                        This is a great tool that will sharpen your photos very well! The below settings are what I normally use. Do not go higher for the radius or the threshold, as that will give edges. The amount can be changed as you like.
                        amount: whatever you like but usually 200-250% works for me
                        radius: 0,3
                        threshold: 3 levels



                        Have fun but be warned, photoshop can be a very adictive program!

                          BTW, here is my 4 minute edit of one of your photos. With the original files no doubt this edit would have been better.

                                  Probably around about mid day but I might well be there from around 9am. We should all be there by 12-ish though.

                                        Hi Jonathan,

                                        We moved round to the tunnel entrance (We never realised what a great spot that was!), so myself, Steve and Paul will have shots to show .
