I know this has no artistic appeal and is of poor composition but, people looking at my pictures, even those not aircraft minded pause and look at this with interest.

It really is about what you think about it Richard, and if you like it or not,

What you will get here is comments on focal points, composition, content, etc. some of which youve already mentioned in the description. I cant figure out the Title and its connection to the image.

Me as an example, - I dont like the exaggerated distorted car top right, but I can certainly see some people saying thats "cool"!

I am drawn to engines, the exhausts, their size, the size of the wing, with the background holding no interest, - even being distracting.

So I might take whats interesting for me, and make it fill the frame, or perhaps an abstract part of the plane, and try that.

Loaded a mod as an example.

regards


Willie

Thanks Willie, I had not noticed the distortion of the car. Just goes to show that some of us only see what we want to see, for me it is the new exhaust stacks closest to the camera. Notice how shiny they are compared to the ones on the far engine. I like your idea of cropping to show closely the bit that is interesting to you.
The title, ` Look To The Right` refers to the view from the cockpit on the right side.

Richard.

Ah, - get it. And perhaps it was the new pipes that attracted me to that area.

The distorted background pulls the eye terribly, but I am an aircraft fan, particularly WW2 types, and this viewpoint is not the best for me. Parts of two Merlin exhausts and a wing.
