Rape fields at sunset
I went out scouting for rape fields this evening to test out my tricopter after its 100ft plummet on Monday ... all seems to work fine again!
Here's a composite shot from this evening ... an aerial shot of the fields, with a ground shot of the sky (the sky was completely bleached on the aerial photo, but the sun is roughly where it was in reality )
Does that look a bit too post-processed? These were the original images ... ahh the magic of Photoshop!
I was interested to see what sort of height I felt comfortable flying at ... going on the altimeter on my video link, I think I got up to around 150ft, and although it looked pretty small, I could still clearly see the shape of the model because of the T-shaped chassis. Not sure I'll ever go up to 400ft as I did with the helicopter though! I would say 200ft is a useable ceiling, provided it's more or less above me so I can see its silouette.
Cheers for now!

I don't usually like doing that much post-processing to an image, but as an experiment of what one can do in poor lighting conditions, it was a fun exercise I want my images to express, as closely as possible, what it would look like to be up with the aircraft yourself. That's why I often use HDR techniques to increase the dynamic range of images, so the views appear more like they would to our eyes ... But maybe I went too far this time

I took some more 'traditional' aerial photos today just behind where I work Taken looking away from the subtle evening sunlight, these are single RAW images as opposed to the composite above ...
A ground shot first
