Planes of Fame, took their Corsair up into the air last year before the pandemic. I was out shooting it from the ground and decided to go back through and edit some of the photos. Unfortunately for California we don’t get anything fun for the sky except blue and bright. Below is the shot as I originally took it, kind of dark and not very attractive. This was with the A6500 and the 100-400 lens. This was a handhold at 1/320 as the plane was going overheard.
Below is after I did an auto apply for settings and then tweaked the exposure a little bit. I also cropped in and then added a little vignette to bring the plane into the center.
