Looking at your portfolio, Garreth, sometimes you leave space in front of your plane, and sometimes you don't. Sometimes you include the whole of the plane in your frame, sometimes you don't. A lot of them work fine, but I find the ones without space around them look too confined.
This is obviously a manipulation of one you previously uploaded, and I have looked at them alongside each other.
It's good to have a play with your pictures, but it would be helpful to know what you hoped to achieve, if you feel that you did achieve it, and if there are any particular aspects that you would like comments about.
You have given the picture drama and have made it more than a straightforward shot of the plane. Although the tail colours are brighter, the logo is less defined. I feel that somewhere between the original and this one might look better, as the sky is a little overdone and unnatural.
Have fun with your "playing", it's always great to see an image transformed.
Pamela.

I feel sure that I have commented in the past images about being a little too cramped in the frame for my liking and also about leaving space in front as per lots of other quotes. These comments still apply to all similar uploads. All most of your look the same so try a litle more space around and in front of the planes and see the effect.

The composition doesn't bother me, and i applaud your attempt to be different. The end product is rather false I fear. The sky doesn't suit the image and there are lots of bright/dark areas where they should not be.

But, keep at it and do not be dissallusioned. Select the aircraft, copy, then paste onto a suitable sky. The defringe the aircraft image in the layers menu, about 10 pixels, clean up any bad joins and flatten the image. Keep trying.
