Here it is not better. Yesterday we even had some big snowflakes that lay on the floor for a few minutes until they disappeared. A lot of rain and wind in the change, then it is a few hours a little quieter but still uncomfortably cold at about 2 degrees Celsius.

Somehow the mood is down, and no improvement in sight ...

Cheer up lads better weather and days ahead! :) Now in this video where the clouds are going by I would have used my Blue GR Filter. Dont know what you would use though for the lightning, maybe ND 32.

Oh I’m not down, just giving weather updates to what’s happening in our area, that’s why I’m a amateur meteorologist ;)
Thumbswayup:). It was cold but clear here today. We have had a real smorgasboard lately, snow one day, cold but sunny and clear the next. I stayed inside today catching up on some work and taking breaks to set up M2. Unfortunately, I do need new filters and case so I ordered another Smatree soft case and a CPL. I am going to look to see if I can just swap out foam inserts on hard case. Have you heard anything about these Katanas or similar devices which grip the mavic so you can take pics?

I’ve seen those handle things but not really looked into them but the wet suit does look very good though especially for us in the UK at the mo;)

I’ve got a little GoPro hero 6 black to take normal photos, lovely little camera, that’s why I’ve not really looked into the handle thingy. Is it something you might consider?

At first blush, it looks a little funny to me unless your mavic is the best camera you have or you want your people and land shots to look just like your aerial shots for some reason. One reason I am interested is it would simplify testing camera settings and filters without taking to the air.

I recently snapped a few pics of this reflecting pool and sculpture with my iphone. The glare makes it look like the cone is sucking a light beam from the sky! Is that just bad camera angle? Not sure what filter would have worked best. Just out of curiosity, how hard would it be to remove that beam in lightroom?

Had a quick play with it in Lr, couldn’t remove it at all. The beam is soooo bright it’s burnt out that part of the photo, just like the sun would do. Think you hit the nail on the head with what you said about taking that shot at a different angle. I don’t know what I’m talking about but when I take a photo with something bright in it I’ll move the drone/camera until I get no sun/beams of bright light in it, I use the histogram when I take pics also remember our good old friend, zebra ;)

Here you go, you photo with a very quick edit, I had to crop the top and bottom of the photo to loose the glare, if you look at your original photo, there was more glare, bottom left.

The only bad thing about cropping it down that much is, if you look very closely at the photo it’s started pixelating which again looks crap.
