Sunny day into a dark hangar and my SLR (or more likely my photography skills) can’t cope!

Some SLR’s can now take 3+ shots at differing settings at the same time and merge them together. Used to have to do this manually

And massive thanks to you, Ed, for organising it.

I know these things aren't easy to set up, but I think it paid off with a great time for lots of people.

It's called HDR- High Dynamic Range. It's even available on quite modest phones now. On Canon DSLRs you get it by selecting the SCN mode.

And I'm kicking myself that I didn't think to use it when my car was in front of the Lancaster! :dope:

Spotted another 924 at Travelodge Gainsborough!


That was me with my new car! :grin:

I was quite excited when I pulled in to the carpark and saw your turbo.

It was great meeting both of you, and all the others. I'm already looking forward to the next event.
