The pilot going over his Nakajima B5N "Kate" (a torpedo bomber) before the Tora! Tora! Tora! performance at the 2016 Wings Over Houston Airshow in Houston, Texas, USA.

LOL, last year at this time we had Environmental Portrait challenge and I entered an airplane and pilot photograph in that one. This one is much better and I hope does better :-)

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that contributes well to the challenge

I like the creative use you have made of your wide angle lens here. Your human is isolated and key to the image as a whole and therefore, in my mind, fulfils the challenge brief well, a portrait doesnít always have to the obvious facial jobby. I like the way the lens has emphasised the tailfin, I also like your bold use of contre-jour, the backlit flag, the shadows, the rays, it all works well for me. Iím sorry your entry didnít do much better for you Ronnie, thats the blind nature of the DPC beast sometimes.

Not really a portrait. Very nice angle to take that picture. A 6 from me
