This is a modified image taking advantage of your expert advise.

I know there is not much space on the left , but I am trying to emphasize the smoke trail, but I may have overdone it.

If it`s permissible I`d like to describe the photo the wing walker on the Stearman is: Jane Wicker - the aircraft owner- the pilot is her x-husband. They put on a terrific show!

I have more photos if anyone is interested.

Thanks, Jack

Good effort. I would just prefer a little less exposure - you used +1/3 but I think it wasn't needed here. Easily darkened in software.

A great piece of work, which Paul kindly pointed out would certainly benefit from a little less exposure, in order to bring out a little more depth of colour in the clouds and smoke vapour. Still a cracking piece of work.

Another good effort. I would add some space to the top unless you specificall want a pano. Theres a little sharpening needed. I have toned down the brightness and highlights in the smoke trail, effectively getting rid of the +1/3, and it does provide quite a bit of additional detail. Its normal to add positive exposure compensation shooting into the sky if the sugject is dar, however, its really all bright, so the metering should do a decent job.


Ive loaded a mod showing what I mean, and slightly rotated the crop so the plane is pointing down a little more.


regards


Willie

Frank,
After rereading my description I see it wasn`t very clear, she is the aircraft owner and the business and web site is hers.
It is an interesting read : Jane Wicker wingwalker / airshows.

Frank,

No worries Mate was taken in the light hearted manner it was meant to be.

I just thought you might like to hire Jane to perform at a air show near you, do you think that old Stearman could do a pond crossing? She could lash Jerry cans outside and walk out there to refuel in mid-air as needed.
Just kidding I did look at her schedule and she is a very busy woman , and putting lots of hours on Aurora - Her plane.
I never had much interest in air show stunts until I saw hers. Now I want to go to another and really work at getting some good images of her and that gorgeous old plane.
I have a Nikon D-800 on order hopefully I`ll get it before Summer.
Regards, Jack
