Super image, you could clone out the red object/light on the left as it does not add anything and distracts a little.

A nice shot, and an amusing observation. Good exposure, quite sharp, interesting subject.

Could be improved a little with more room on the right and top, and the contrast/colours given a little pop, - I know the weather wasnt the best.

Take a look at the mod and see what you think.


regards

I agree that a little contrast lift and colour tweak helps, but the proportions of the composition are fine. The mod looks like its crammed in the corner.

I'd be interested to see this flipped horizontally, for aesthetic purposes.

I was looking for Wilbur & Orville!

I agree with the above comments and appreciate that this is just a smart observation on your part.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions. The colour pop improves the pic but emphasises the red and white object even more, so it does need to be cloned out as Ian says.
There were four pre WW1 aircraft flying as it was a calm, still late afternoon and these aircraft can only be flown under these conditions.

Fine record with required cloning. More dramatic, closer with wide angle but doubtless impossible and then not a record either.
