Hello from teh CC Club

I can see that you love aeroplanes and it shows in this shot.

there are a couple of things there that are niggling me. Play around with the angle when you are shooting a prop, get really low, go side wades, front back , get really close in or shoot from a distance then crop the picture really close and get some crazy angles. In this shot I would like to have seen a little more of the right hand side propella, it would have evened it out just a tad and the POV would be eyeed better.

There is also a lot of burnt sienna and softness. If you are going to go down that road, be careful wtih the softness, there has to be one point where it is pretty sharp or it can get to look like a soft flat shot. I like your sienna.

The whites are coming across as buttery cream, which is lovely.

If you are going to go this soft, you still need to sharpen, it will bring out details that you would not have through where there, right now it does tend to blend into one.

I am also wondering if you couldn't have gotten away with a steeper angle on this, something to think about

over all a great shot!!!!

PM me if you have any questions!

Love the vintage look of this photo. I think this is a very cool shot. Voters tend not to like soft focus shots here, but I'm going to tell you that its a freakin great shot. Anyway, good luck and great shot!
