Thanks a lot for the comments and the likes! I finally got a new photo backdrop and find the blue both more pleasing visually and also more helpful re contrast. I also got another shade of blue, two greys and one in black - for more tests.

Thank you, folks - I´m glad I completed the project as it was really demanding and terminally iffy. But I like British carriers and to me this is one of the most interesting amongst them.
