Liverpool Airport Monday 16 April 2018 - Primus Flight

A nice ILS approach with a low approach and go around on runway 27. Showing as ZD848 (109) and ZA614 (076).

Can we have a like button?

To save bumping threads by saying thank you, could a "like" button be added on the forum?

Quick question regarding my Sigma 120-400mm

Hi, I have had this lens for nearly 12 months and I use this with my Canon 40D. I have noticed that the images come out rather dark and I have to brighten them using Lightroom. Is this a usual thing or/how do I compensate for a lens of this reach? I usually shoot at 8.0 and the ISO is dependant on t...

RAF Lakenheath and RAF Mildenhall 10th and 11th May 2017

Not posted on here for a while but I managed to escape during a mid week break to Center Parcs. Sadly it appears I have forgotten how to photograph military aircraft. Heat haze at Lakenheath was pretty bad and my positioning was all wrong too. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4171/34596794556_f4d0729eb...

Peed off

Having booked a family stay at Center Parcs at Elevden Forest, I was happy when I saw the F35s and that they would be at Lakenheath for a month. I go on Monday and the F35 have broken off home! It would have been a bonus but when I was last at the same Center Parcs in February 2016, Lakenheath was o...

Camera body or Lens?

Hi,
I'm thinking of upgrading, but not sure if I should upgrade my Canon 40d or my Sigma APO DG 70-300. Budget £300-400ish.

Any suggestions please??

Thanks,

Paul
