F4U Corsair at the Planes of Fame Museum. I got a lot of good shots on this outing and the planes just inside hangar doors were particularly good subjects. I think my P-38 pics in a couple of other recent challenges had more of the elusive wow-factor that does well here. This should still be good for a high 5, IMO.

Signature style elements of this shot:

-The very slight sepia cast I have used. This is a custom preset I have in Nik silver Efex I call "Sepia Pop". Sometimes I do a luminance overlay of it with the color image.

-It's a plane. I probably don't do those as often as bicycles, but I do have plenty of those in past challenges. And it is what I had shot recently.

-I used my not-patented technique of selectively applying tonemapping using layers and masks to highlight desired details and textures in the image. Things such as the wrinkles of the panels on the forward fuselage and wings.
