I would definately try and crop in closer, and it looks like it could use some more USM.

That's a difficult angle, especially on a Cessna. I think with a little work you could probably turn it into an acceptable shot, but I'm not 100% sure.

Hope all goes well!  Big thumbs up

i dunno if its me or if the plane is tilted or the photo is tilted.. but it seems a little tilted.. but other than taht i love the pic.. its a abstract view of a plane.. and as you have already called it, 'lonelyramp' its pretty good from the position..and it standing alone on a ramp under such a beautiful sky, i like it

i think maybe a polarizing filter might have helped or increase the saturation on photoshop to help deepen the blue in the sky to give it a better lookin' background

Yes it's slightly tilted. Needs slight counter-clockwise rotation to level the wings. Also, crop away some of the dead space on the left to centre the plane in the photo. I would try a bit more USM like Syncmaster said, and experiment with contrast and colour saturation to see if that makes an improvement.
