They are processed using Photomatix, it gives a more dynamic feel to
the photo's especially when the light is not good for photo's as is the
major problem in Ireland. Some people don't think it is proper photography
but they were saying that when digital first started out. I have included a link
it might give you a better idea of the process.

Not just nice photos-they are excellent photos.
You said:
Some people don't think it is proper photography.
Well think on this.
The first "camera" was a box with a pin hole allowing an image to imprint onto a chemical covered plate with no way of changing the input except by under/over exposure. Only this can be called a true copy of the subject recorded.

Most camera's produced since then have had some means to make changes to the image in one way or another.
Your photos are just another step forward in the evolution of photography.
Thank you for sharing them and the additional info with us.

Hugo.

Guinness,
You have put up another set of excellent photos. While HDR does help, it's not essential. And as Mark say's keep sharing.

One question is the registration EI-FW01 for Hiway Demon 175 a new form of Irish marks for microlights.

I've been advised that this single seater Flex Wing falls short weight wise of IAA registration regulations and without a reg the owner could not get insurance. So the NMAI (National Microlight Assoc. of Ire) have apparently set up a special register for this type of aircraft and this one is first on their register.
It's believed to have made its first flight in many years from Limetree last Friday.

Its not that it falls short of the weight for registration as such. NMAI had a series of meetings with the IAA over a period of about 18 months the culmination of which was a Single Seat Deregulation (SSDR) system similar to that of the UK and Germany.

During these meetings the IAA decided to delegate the responsibility for these aircraft to the NMAI and as such EI-FW01 is an NMAI Identification number for this aircraft which, amongst other things, is a requirement for Insurance companies to issue an insurance policy.

This aircraft is just the first to use this system which is why it would appear so unusual at the moment. Hopefully it will be the first of many.

Full details of SSDR, including all of the agreed procedures and requirements, can be requested from the NMAI Tech Office.

All the best
Paul
