My title photo was obviously taken from the air, not by a crow you might add. I've been into drones in recent years. I was impressed by all the emerging drone captured images, I had to have a go. This shot was captured last year with my first drone, a DJI Phantom 4 Pro. Aperture f4.5, shutter speed 1/400 second, ISO 100. The Phantom's camera has a fixed focal length of 8.8mm (or 24mm in 35mm full frame terms) that a fairly wide angle lens. I capture all my images in RAW format for maximum detail and adjustments in Photoshop. The P4P's camera has a 1" sensor giving lots of pixels, 5460x3640 in this case. Plenty when you want to made a big print to wall hang. Like what I did, says me proudly turning to my right and looking at mine. I took this photo in June 2018 at around 6.30 in the morning. Great light and just a few joggers around. The main two reactions to flying a drone in a public place, "can I have a go" or "don't you go spying on me
