Taken yesterday at Shobdon airfield in Herefordshire - I'm just so impressed with the way out of the camera jpgs just pop out at you -

For the plane enthusiasts, there's a Piper Cub, Two Nanchangs (Chinese Yaks) and two shots of a Yak with a superb paintjob - used the Vivid setting just to emphasize it a little more

Agreed about the jpeg colors and you've gotten some nice shots of these very cool airplanes.

I use the Vivid setting most of the time - I picked it up as a sort of "tip" from a essay of Kirk Tuck's on how he uses his PEN. I can't remember whether it was the E-P2 or E-PL1, not that it matters one bit.

BBW, exactly the question I'd like to ask BartonFlyer.

BartonFlyer.... which setting did you use? Vivid or Normal? Your pics are amazing. You're right, the color just 'pops'!

Thanks - the last two (the Yak with the new paintjob) were using the vivid setting, the other three normal.

Hey Barton Flyer I like them. Nice colours, nice compostition. My brother flies a bit so I've been to a few fly-ins and airshows with him. From experience it can be kinda tricky sometimes to get the aircraft to look good in a picture but you've hit the nail on the head by getting down low.

I'm curious about the fan looking thingo just behind the propeller on the nangchang? Does it turn with the propeller or is it fixed onto the aircraft frame? I gather that it is used to deflect the air to flow around the engine.

BTW do you fly at all? If you do what sort of aeroplane?

Thanks IconIndustries - Thanks for the comments.
I think you're referring to to the engine cooling gills - closed until the engine & oil warm up then opened
I do fly - a Cherokee 6 - Alliance Aviation - I've flown in Australia as well, visiting a pilot friend, we flew from Canberra to Maroochydore - great experience, the most amazing thing to me being just how far you can fly in a straight line - in the UK we have so much controlled airspace that you rarely fly long on any given track - flying between fuel stops in Australia was VERY different.
