    Hey, thanks for looking. I'm just looking for a bit of help on these pictures please! The first two pics are just normal pics that have fiddled slightly. The last one is where my problems lie. It is a crop, and the helicopter was very underexposed. I've just been banging my head against a wall trying to get the exposure correct, and this is what I've ended up with. C&C please! Thanks :)

    Maybe next time try spot metering on the helicopter in the last shot (when shooting in strong backlight).

    Also, you may want to decrease the sharpening in the last shot, over-sharpening is what's causing the halo around the helicopter.

    I think your first shot is the best of the bunch. Nice colours in the clouds, and I think including the horizon works well too.

    I would like to have a tad more motion in the blades; they look a bit too static;

    Image 1758 still has some strange corona around te fuselage.
