    Billy. A true Mustang lover. Many thanks for your comments. I hate to say it but this one looks best in colour. I should have put a different shot in but I just love this bird! Since you read its history you should also read the pilot's comments on his post flight inspection. Very interesting. Go to http://www.vintagewings.ca/page?s=63&lang=en-CA and choose "Pilot Report" bottom right. First one is "After the fact" by Tim Leslie.

    Back in Ottawa again :-) funny, two "ground" pics in Main and two "air" pics in Open... that should have been a great show!!!
I have the same problem as in Main, like both pics but have just place for one in my TT. Here it was even more difficult, as I found myself with 18 final favs after a tough decision and spent almost an hour deciding which ones to vote for... the Seabee is great and very, very beautiful, but I have always loved the old Mustang, so finally yours is in my TT :-) the pic itself is great, difficult to capture this beauty when is moving fast, and your final crop with so mane negative space is beautiful.
My only hope is that I've shared my votes equally between both of you as a little extra reward, your four pics really deserve nice points :-)
P.S. I've googled for this beauty and enjoyed with the history of its restauration, great you have it near home :-)

    Jade: You can really get to like a flickering prop if you try. It is especially good when you see it when you are landing into a setting sun. (It may be the last thing you see LOL). You are right - I should have left it in colour. Thanks for commenting.

Alby. Thanks for your comment. I was trying for 'empty space'. I should have left out the plane LOL.

    Simply and well composed...I ask myself if cropping it a little bit could add emphasis to the shot...

    Nicely framed and a fine concept - love the title; however, difficult as it is to avoid, the frozen prop bothers me (it's a pilot thing I think!) and the image is less than tack sharp overall. I'm also uncertain that this subject was the best choice for b&w as I keep wishing I could see the same shot in full colour.
