War Birds Pin Ups No6

By TornadoTys
Many, many thanks for the User Awards and votes on my previous War Birds Pin Up image. I am truly surprised.

Another Image from my half day at North Weald War Birds Pin Ups organised by TimeLine Events.
One of four the other models posing on a P51 Mustang.
Because of the dark background I was not sure the model would pop enough in the foreground, hence the B&W image with a coloured subject.

Hope you guys like the editing

She definitely knows to pose! I think I would crop in from the right after the word tall and from top but only a bit to make it look symmetric. She looks tall, just as the writing, haha!

I do agree with you about the crop.
I have thought long and hard about the crop and about the theme for Pin Ups, as it is not just about the pretty girl, I also wanted to show as much as possible of the War Bird fighter planes in the scene. My first War Bird Up Load No1 my aim was to show the front of the Spitfire so the viewer sense the power of the iconic War Bird the model was posing on. For me showing the engine exhaust cowling displays the dormant power of the aircraft !

Some of the togs at the TimeLine event were like paparazzi and swarmed all over the models. So one had to also shoot around them hogging the best vantage spot. So getting a good angle of the model and War Bird was a challenge !
For this shot I would liked to have been standing more to the left with a slight angle inwards to capture all of the model and more of the aircraft front fuselage.
