Part of the engine detail on a Stearman aircraft. I was taken with the decorative functionality of the unit.

Oh my favourite subject, aeroplanes, but then I do fix them for a living. As to the image, it is a well framed and composed shot of what is, in engineering speak, a good looking engine, however it is slightly underexposed and loses a little detail, all the same a good photo.

Lovely image Al. Like you, I love the artistry in the design of aircraft and their components. (But you can't see them today!).

Regards, George.

Thanks Stephen and George, I appreciate your comments and support.

Stephen, looking at the image, you're right, I guess I probably should have used a little fill flash to light up the dark shadows. I haven't quite convinced myself it's OK to use a flash on bright sunny days. Al
