Craig@Random Ramblings from Herts, United Kingdom

Fantastic, imposing from this angle. Great pp work again too (tonemapped?). I must admit that I was never much of a jet fan (scuse the pun) but as they get older/vintage the appeal grows so perhaps I'm just a nostalgia junkie!! :) I would love to see an EE Lightning fly though.......

@Craig@Random Ramblings: Part tone mapped,part dodge and burn,mostly luck with the light!!! I'm old enough to have watched and heard Lightnings break the sound barrier at airshows. Awesome!!!

Thanks for the comments :)

Very beautiful shot and impressive. Very nice angel. Like the weather. B&W is a good choice here.
