Photographs - 11-19-2013

I dont know if this is the right place or not but here goes. I recently took some pictures of airplanes in flight with my camera lens zoomed in up close. The pictures is good but I have a darker blue (than the actual sky) ringing the plane. Any suggestions ?[ATTACH]12639[/]

I'm not a professional photographer, but... I don't know how to put this nicely... I can barely tell what the subject matter is. To take pictures of extremely far away objects you're going to need a telephoto lens.

What camera and lens are you using?

Not a pro either, but definitely needs more zoom. The sky looks pretty normal on my monitor, but they can vary widely from brand to brand. Might try a polarizing filter and see how that works. They also make filters to equalize or enhance certain colors in the spectrum. Get a few (they're relatively cheap) and experiment.

I see the darker ring surrounding the plane on my monitor and phone. I had a similar issue when trying to photograph my buddy during his aerobatics shows. If you find out how to fix it let me know please!

Photo was shot with a Canon EOS Rebel T1i using a Canon EF-S 18-200mm f3.5-56 IS lens.... Lens was zoomed all the way to 200mm and was wide open at f5.6 and shutter speed of 1/1600 sec.... ;)

What you seen in the photo is probably vignetting:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vignetting

Normally you really only notice this in the corners and quite such a big ring.... However check this page:

http://www.lenstip.com/306.8-Lens_re...ignetting.html

Looks like you can reduce the vignetting quite a bit by simply stopping down the lens a bit (they stopped down to f8.0).

Bottom line is, what you see in the photo is "normal" for this lens... if it bothers you need to understand how to avoid it when taking the photo and/or how to correct in your post processing...

hope this helps... ;)

this was the subject matter. I had it zoomed in to 200 mm. I put this in EDIT and cropped it. I need to work on my technique or stick to photographing stills :)
