I was attracted to the contrast of the small, studious lad almost lost among the aircraft, which seem to tower over him (you may have to search for him!)

Nice image in the circumstances. Low light etc. Not entirely sure the lad is quite obvious enough but the general composition is good. a Hawker Hart or Hind I think - between the wars.

Good detail in the image, though going by the title and your description iam not too sure if the end intent is achieved here Smile. Like you said you may need to find him....Smile on a more serious note maybe it would have worked with a more profile type point of view with the Plane in the background with the boy up in front would probably have achieved the contrast of big and small.

Cheers and hope this helps

Quote: a Hawker Hart or Hind I think - between the wars.


The cut away rear cockpit tels me that it's a Hind which was an updated version of the Hart and otherwise pretty much identical externally.
The greatest difference, apart from some invisible structural changes was the introduction of a new powerplant. A variant, I believe, of the " Rolls-Royce Kestrel."

The idea is good, but the result is a good plane shot, not what you had in mind. The only way I can see this working for you is to crop square, losing most of the plane, and removing the person standing behind the boy, who is a distraction. I tried to do this in the mod as an example.

I would lose the person on the left too, but not necessarily crop any more.
The main problem with aviation museums is not being able to get a clear shot of anything indoors. Fine for looking, not so good for shooting!

Thanks for the comments and advice - the square crop works particularly well.
