I really love this photo. I'm disappointed that it didn't finish higher. It deserves to be!

Not bad, i don't like the crop at the bottom, im guessing you did this to hide the stand of platform it was mounted on?

Beautiful sky and a really cool plane. Just wish you had more of the plane in the shot.

interesting shot! In the future might try a bit slower shutter speed to show motion in the props. Unless it was falling from the sky, then that's just sad :)

I like how the comp would be if it were to include the entire plane. I hope that makes sense.

The sky is awesome, I take it the plane is on a static display not really flying. Great idea though.
