I agree, I like the shot. I think I would make a copy and try something in Photoshop. Think I'd crop a bit, maybe even cut off the mainwheel because you can't see all of it. Keeping my shape, I think mostly I'd cut off a bit of the very bright sky and then see if that would permit me to bring up the brightness of the fuselage sides without burning out the remaining sky completely. Edit the "curve" probably.
I like the light and shadow inside the cockpit and the flash of prop behind them. If they never accept it, it would still look good on your wall.
Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.

I really like that photo... unfortunately, it's "offbeat" and pretty "artsy", along with some imperfect lighting, which throws it off of the ALN quality curve. Had the lighting been on your side, you still might have gotten a "badmotiv", but in any case, I think you're definately on the right track and it's only a matter of time before you get some photos on the site.
At least you're not bummed about a reject! That's better than SOME of us (why are you all looking at me?)...
The best aviation photo I've ever taken was rejected by Airliners.net
