    My first flight today and my first picture.
    It was maybe 20 minutes to sunset....
    But, not overly impressed with the image. And this is after LightRoom was applied. Seems a bit washed out.

    How can I improve this? It's using a P3A... brand new.... a little bit of wind... automatic settings.

    I am a photographer, so usually wouldn't be in auto, but .. it was my very first flight. Any advice and tips would be great!

    Use RAW, don't use auto.
    Colour balance is better sorted on screen at home it's just too difficult to get right with the continual variation from a flying camera.
    You might try a custom setting around 5700
    Skies will often benefit from a fake grad.

    As a photographer one of the keys is lighting. Next is taking multiple shots with different setting and then review and select the best photo. Just one usually doesn't cut it.
