Many thanks to everybody that left comments or clicks on my previous uploads, and thanks of course to Pete for the honour of the HC on the last one.

I have been asked by a friend to supply a photo of the BOBMF Lancaster Bomber as a gift, my best shot of the plane had a real nasty sky behind it, grey and bland, so I have tried to put a new sky in the pic.

i would be interested to see what you think of my efforts.

Thank you in advance as always.

WWII vintage plane. I like the composition. I would have liked a tad more light on the plane, but then you wouldn't have had all that gorgeous light in the backkground. Keep it.

I just clicked on the larger version, and it shows the light much better. Ignore the above. Print it out large, it will make a fabulous present.

This is excellent, Phil. Surely you didn't go round all those whirry propellers? Class work.
