As much as I love photographing nature, I had a blast with my camera in The Museum of Flight in Seattle this summer. The smooth, polished, riveted chrome on these planes really caught my eye. So I took some time and tried to learn a new photoshop technique to really get the effect I visualized mentally when I took the shot. This is pretty close for a first attempt. But I wonder if it’s too dark, or if I need to crop our more of the plane in the background. As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions.

  1. I wouldn’t change a thing. I like the fact I’m not sure which plane to focus on (often the kiss of death in photos, I find), the lower or the upper one. I like it as is.

  2. Great shot. Lots of movement. All the lines. I also like how it’s not just chrome, it’s monochrome.

  3. Thanks a lot.
