An interesting piece of aeronautical engineering. From a photographic point of view, and being appreciative of possible space restraints, I think the composition needs a little tweak or some cropping. The yellow tipped propellor creeping into the edge of the frame is a little distracting and if it could be avoided at the time of capture it may have helped. If not possibly cropping out at the processing stage. Equally I would give some focus to your subject in post processing to reduce the distracting background which you most likely cant do anything about at the taking stage. Well not unless you are handy at driving tanks and could have jumped in to move it out the way : )

The main critique for me however is the sharpness of the plane. At the front the detail of the rivets is very sharp but the depth of field falls away rather quickly on the right side of the frame - more so than the left which leads me to think that possibly the lens had some smear perhaps on part of it which has softened and blurred that part of the image.

An interesting image that if possible at the taking stage exploring different angles of view and considering background distraction may be something to think about in future and if not possible then subject to access to photo-editing software some tweaking at processing stage to enhance the subject. As a record shot of what you saw on the day and a memory of that moment then it is fine aside from the softness - I'd just check the front element of the lens to check it is clean.

hello Phantom,

I see you admire airplanes. I do not know the model but it must be old to be in a museum Smile
I note with pleasure the little part of the propeller appearing, it shows that the airplane is not an old jet so... for me its inclusion is beneficial from a encyclopedian knowledge aspect.

The green tank is very much of an information which devalues the prime subject of your frame. It doesn't steal the show but it just doesn't seem to correspond and interact with the airplane.

So my question is what was at your side (not seen in the picture) that prevented you to shoot the airplane from the side that the tank was? I have serious doubts if your interest was the airplane or the Union Jack flag painted on the airplane Wink Your text seems to give a hint Smile

As I have mentioned in my blog I understand that when we look at something we seem to be attracted to the light, as primitive people would feel secure in a lighted area rather than a dark one. The light trails seen on the floor show you could have shot the plane from the side of the tank as light comes from the left back side also.

Also I would like to suggest you if you ever visit the place again or you find yourself in a situation that the background is beyond your control to be more creative with your approach and shoot from low upwards. in this case you could have still got the flag the airplane but no tank. A metallic roof isn't as bad as background and it can be replaced ba a blue sky. I have never seen a tank being painted blue, have you?

I think this is the Avro York at Cosford in the new "cold war" hanger There is such a jumble of aircraft in there that it it notoriously difficult to get a shot of the exhibits, so I you have done very well to get this one.

It is an Avro York, a development of the Lancaster as a commercial transport. Decent image but you do have camera shake. There is no single plane of sharpness and you needed a faster shutter speed or a camera support. For record work such as this you must have sharpness. Use a tripod or, at least a monopod.
