    Had a trip out with work this afternoon, and I've included some pics that I've taken. I've tried a couple of different styles on the pics, and I'll be interested to see which one you think works, and why. I know selective colouring isn't for everyone, but its probably my favourite at the moment. Thanks for looking :)

    So are you the official rescue photographer? :)

    I particularly like the view of the boat from above in B&W.

    Keleko: Nope. I'd like to think my pics would be somewhat better if I was pro! Nope, I'm a pilot, who is an amateur photographer in my spare time! I had an afternoon off, so thought I'd ride in the business end and photograph the bit that I'm normally blind to :)

    cool stuff

    #2 is a great photo. I think the selective color works for that image very well

    Consider giving the rotors in #4 a little more room to "breathe" on the left side of the frame. I look at that pic and keep seeing a fly buzzing around between 2 window panes :)

    Thaks everyone.

    Ravaroo: yep, I know what you mean. Luckily it's just a crop of a much bigger pic, so I can have another go!

    Great shots, really like number 1, number 3 has great potential, just a bit to much space in the middle of the frame for me, I'd be tempted to try and recompose it to take the space away....maybe a bit like this...

    Apologies for the rough cut and paste (only spent a couple of mins on it and was working from a quick screen grab)

    Hope you dont mind me recomposing your pic, if you dont want it up let me know and i'll take it down :).

    thanks

    Thedrift: More than happy for you to have a go :) I have a whole series of the pics, and have a natural one like yours. I just need the time to edit them all. But I know what you mean about the space in the middle. Thanks for commenting.
