By dougv  
Another photo from Duxford last year.
It is an unarmed high altitude reconnaissance aircraft which was delivered on 13th January 1945.
Isn't the Internet amazing?

Awesome. Particularly the larger file (naturally!). This is up amongst the best I've seen Doug. Lighting direction, background sky, sharpness... everything.

Great shot Doug - one of the best I've seen of spitfires/planes on this site. Well done! It must have been flying very low? Ewan.

Great pic. I've been trying man and boy to get a decent one of this bird since 1975, and you've really done it justice - I'm deeply envious!

I always take a good look at Spitfires as my Dad flew them during WW2. The men painted logos on them--he was a "Looker".

Aplendid image--thanks. Jennnnn

Doug. Appreciated your pointing me at the competition stuff earlier. Knowing that I had commented on this wonderful image earlier, thought I'd take a look and see how things were going with it...

(Sigh)

This image deserves SO much more recognition. My commiserations here Doug. I hope you are not too disheartened by the lack of response.

Strange, but not everyone is a Spitfire nut eh?

Thnx Dougv for your comment. I dont force people/anyone to look at my photos. I just want people to get a chance to view my photos in a bigger version, after all photos look better in bigger format. I live in Finland and I dont own an appropriate creditcard, so i cant pay the e2 fee. And just for the record, Im not the only one who uses this technique to present a bigger version of the photo. Have I considered to pay the fee? YES, in some way but its still under concideration.

Lovely capture of the Spit Doug, the prop motion giving a lovely effect. Nicely done.
