4. The image can be photo-shopped to some extent, levels changes, cropping, sharpening etc. are all acceptable. The photograph must retain it’s initial subject though, don’t make it something it’s not (cutting and pasting the moon into the shot, for example). HDR images are not acceptable. If you are unsure, please PM a moderator.
5. The competition will remain open until 23.59 on the 1st May 2018 (UK time), to enable anyone with last minute entries some breathing space

After also bagging the C17 over Thirlmere with Starbug, I thought it worthy to leave just the one image from that day in the competition.

So I've opted for a shot, from another of our mad dashes and gone for the "rarer than hens teeth" Royal Australian Navy SH-60 SeaHawk above Poison Lake (LFA7) and against a very gloomy misty Snowdonia range transitting from Brize Norton to Prestwick for JW18 - image from 19/04/18.
