@Captain Zef, your compositions are spot on.  I always think I get it right, but when I have a look at my photos afterwards I am disappointed.

I assume there is some editing done on your photos afterwards?  What tools do you use?

As a short description of how i shoot.

I always shoot RAW mode. This lets me focus my attention on composition.
Then i take plenty of photos from different angles trying to stick to the Thirds rule.

When i get back home i use Adobe Lightroom. The 10 USD per month subscription is worth it for me.
I adjust my photos to look like the way i saw it. I try to not go to crazy with colors. I do however boost most of the clouds.
I generally  auto correct white points and black points.
Then i crop the photo if needed to correct for the Thirds rule.
Then i turn down exposure slightly because i over expose all my photos.
I  play with shadows and highlights.
Then i add a little saturation.
If i need to i do Noise reduction.
After that i add a little bit of dark vignette.
Then i add my watermark and thats it.

Most of my photos i do this way.

Sometimes i do a high contrast black and white photo.

Thanks for the 'tutorial'. I'm going to try putting in more effort for better results, according to your guidelines!

Did my longest flight yet. Over 4km away from me. I play the video back at 100 km/h. This was in Prins Albert with my Mavic Pro.

Daai is die beste tyd om te vlieg maar ai dis tog so moeilik om daai tyd van die dag nog lus te voel vir fotos neem. Daai is kuier, TV en Games tyd.

Got a good deal on a Mavic Air here on the forum and package arrived today. Amazing how easy it is to use! Will be hanging around here to learn from you guys......
Few pics taken on my first flight, unfortunately just around the house..... :peepwall:
