i just thought i would share some images i took last week in cornwall,
using my spark ,
the harbour master at mousehole was very good and helpful,
and explained where to take off from and where not to go,
the wheal peevor mine is situated  a mile and a half outside redruth,
and, a little tip i found on a facebook group,
when drone flying in devon or cornwall , please ring the guard room
at RNAS Culdrose who will put you through to the ops room,
all they want to know is where you are flying at what height,
and the flights duration,
and your name and phone numbr,
they then pass the details of your whereabouts to the ,
relevent pilots if any are in that area ,
they were pleased when people do,
as it shows we as hobbyists  take our hobby seriously ,
and are willing to work with them .

UK has wonderful Medieval Towns. Very Nice Pictures.

Just a small tip - Next time don't save the JPGs so small as you can hardly see any details, and its a pity as they are really nice.

I suggest you start using Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom, (You dont need the Latest CC Version ) they will really give you the extra power to make your Photos a wrok of Artwork.

I have Photoshop Version CS6 and can do whatever I like to my Photos.

Sorry I dont use Free Programs, as I am a Graphic Designer / Photographer Hobbyist.

You got the Skill, the Drone, and the Shots. Now you need the Tools to edit them Buddy !

Taking for Example - GIMP

https://www.gimp.org/

The Free & Open Source Image Editor. This is the official website of the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP). GIMP is a cross-platform image editor available for GNU/Linux, OS X, Windows and more operating systems. It is free software, you can change its source code and distribute your changes.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Every FREE program there is option to send Donation. I dont see anywhere in the Download that give you a TimeLimit (DEMO) or a 1 Year License.

You could install, use it, if there tell you to Pay, then uninstall it. I dont think this is the Case as it is a FREE Program.

If you are a windows user, here's some reasonably decent software https://www.getpaint.net/ or for Mac users https://www.gimp.org/
Not affiliated with either site, just used their software in the past. Good luck,

Great images and well done with getting them. i bought my Spark a couple of months ago with our holiday this year to Devon and Cornwall in mind. I figured i would be able to get some wonderful video and stills of the coastline and other lovely views down there. We have been about five times over the past few years and just dont get bored of the area. I figured that St Michaels Mount would be a superb opportunity. Now the girlfriend has told me that we are not going now as she wants to go further north this year!
Not really a problem though as we have so many wonderful places to explore in the UK anyway...... Just as long as we get the weather

To SEAWIXEN: As I am going to Cornwall at the end of this month too, I found your post at the beginning very interesting for me.
Are they really so rigorous that each one flying the drone must inform authorities about it for each flight?
Does this concern even drones under weight of 500g, such is Spark or Mavic air. What harm can such small thing do anyway? At least if you fly pretty close to the ground (not higher than 30m for instance) just to do some shots.   Therefore I decided to go there with the Mavic Air and not with the Phantom.
If the only problem is to inform local authorities where and when you are going to fly that's OK. But as I know there are many areas at Cornwall and south coast of England with general restrictions for drone flying.

hi  i fly a spark drone ,and am .
glad you liked the post, i suggest you download  an app called drone assist which will help you,
as its more detailed than the go4 app
what you must bear in mind is that on the Cornish coast you have  , Europe's  biggest operational helicopter base , at RNAS  Culdrose  near helston and they fly their choppers on training flights  all over ,
Devon and Cornwall at various heights ,  and  its not obligatory for you to phone,
but it is advised , all they want to know is, your name /phone number / where you will be flying/ and
at what height , so they can warn their pilots your drone  might be in the area thy are in ,
they want the details just in case they need to get in touch, nothing sinister i assure you,
some drone pilots fly at very high altitudes   and if they strike a chopper , in theory they could bring it down ,
i phoned every time and was treated very well and thanked for taking the time to tell them,
as you know drones , havnt had a good press , due to a few idiots being really dense,
as responsible drone flyers we are showing we can work with the   air traffic  controllers  which i think is a good thing

As for photography programs. I’ve been using the adobe apps in my iPhone. Free down load. Not as in depth as CS6 but still offer some nice options.
