Yes
its just nice to see something different
Ah right, gotcha. I'm diving back into conventions from next weekend, so normal service may be resumed
Terrific, sharp and well timed image there Tim!
Glad you could show these young whipper-snappers with their new-fangled Fujis a thing or two!!:LOL:
Works well against the darker sky too.
Nice work Tim!(y)
The old gear doesn't come out much, but that's the kit with the longer lenses. I do think I will get a Fringer adapter soon, to adapt the L gear to my X-T3
Fab Arrers shot!
Well, it's 'okay'.
Really like time Tim, nice bit of framing there, steam in the bg too.

Crowd, A great shot of the Red Arrow's there Tim
I certainly prefer Time to Crowd. I have since pondered whether a frame around it would help it (but not bothered to try).
What an amazing image. Stunning detail and colour. Bravo
There were many other shots that didn't make the cut. I'd hate to try this sort of thing with film.
Crowd
That looks great. After 5yrs of taking photography more seriously, I have yet to try air show photos.
It's not something we do very often, but the lad & I have tried to get to Wings and Wheels each year. Shame it was the last one this year :/

Hi Tim

Time, clever use of the small window to frame your Time, not sure if the crop could be a bit tighter to get rid of the white bits top and bottom and centre the window as well. I like the way the steam is there to confirm you are at an old railway station.

Crowd, what is not to like, nice colours against the grey clouds, plenty of action and not a person in site, great image which fits the theme to perfection.

Week XVIII - Crowd is a nice shot there. Always a good subject. id be happy taking that. Good job
Crowd is a superb shot. Hats off totally!!
Thanks Bob and Chenti. I took quite a few shots in order to get that one. I suspect if I knew what the formations were going to be it would be a bit easier.

Cheers Pete. I did ponder on (and try different crops), but that was the one I preferred. I wanted a bit of context, albeit not much, of being inside.
Whilst it was a miserable day at times at Wings and Wheels, it did at least mean the sky wasn't flat.

Loving the Comic Con stuff that you've shot recently Tim.

Cracking shot for crowd too. Great colour and detail. Perfect timing too.
Nice shot for squashed. You got a much nicer BG on your version than I did. Well seen and composed.

Well, another few weeks have gone by with no time :/

Great concept Tim, I like it!:clap:

Well framed and terrific use of reflections.
Thanks Gareth. I thought it different/interesting.
Wow, lucky find for Squash Tim, works very well, even your reflection adds something to the Image.


Pete
To be fair, I knew this was there, and I've taken shots using it before :)
I do like the way I've caught the camera bottom right, like yousay, it adds context.

Thanks Lee. There is likely to be a bit more comic con stuff as I catch up, seeing as they are taking up most of my weekends currently!

Week XXVIII - Wide

Taking it literally for a change, this was taken using the pano mode on the XT3, seeing what it would do.
I was relatively close and shooting from a corner, which I assume causes the focus to drop away (I wonder if AF-C would be the answer).
What does intrigue me about the shot is why the people in the background have come out like that when the foreground has come out okay. I suspect PS would have done a better job given the amount of shots taken in pano mode (not that you get to keep them, they are thrown away once the pano has generated).

Anyway. PABD!

Nice panorama Tim.(y)
Certainly fits the theme!
A lot of work in that Lego model....it is Lego isn't it?
The background is curious though....not done many panos myself, but I suspect you're right that PS would probably make a better job.
Shame it bins the RAWs though....maybe a future fix in firmware could solve it, or better still, a Pano background fix!;)

Still a nice, detailed image Tim, and the background isn't too distracting.

Not sure what’s going on with that the rope across the front is distracting and i can’t really tell what it is sorry not your best work

Interesting shot for wide Tim. That must have taken a hell of a long time to build! I've had some strange artefacts in panos where someone moves whilst they are being taken - headless bodies, people with more legs than they really should have etc.

That`s a good effort for wide Tim, never tried the X-T3 for any pano work but it`s a good job done.

Yes @GarethB it is Lego. @Dave70D, @Allan.H it wasn't intended to showcase a good shot. I certainly had better ones, it was intended, as @Leebert notes, to show the really strange artifacts in the background of the shot, whilst ticking off the theme.
