So I posted my first shots a few days ago here with my 70-200L f/4 IS. Since then, I was fortunate to add a 100-400L IS to my already heavy bag. I'm actually amazed at the lens, but still need some help in composition and pp.:o

5 This one is straight out of the camera, no crop, no pp. Can someone give me some ideas on pp?

Nice shots. For some of them, some contrast tinkering (levels, curves etc.) and sharpening should give an instant improvement.

Nice shots, 2-4 have a greenish hue to them that can easily be fixed up in PS :)

some ideas on pp?

Simply, start with making the clouds white (contrast) Layer> New Adjustment Layer / Levels. Why Adjustment Layer? Post #9:
Airport runway shoot
Save it as a tiff or psd.
Crop it: Try to leave more room at the front for it to "move into": MOVE YOUR FEET! A <rant> of sorts.
Resize.
Use the PLT to select near the AC & try Filter > Unsharp mask set at 100 0.8 1 & see how it looks.
PLT: Selecting areas in PS.
Use Save AS, pick jpg & save it to keep the EXIF intact.
Once you get used to it, it should take about 2-3 minutes. Have fun!
