I was recently at the Castle Air Musem in Northern CA:
(very cool place BTW; I'd recommend that you'd visit if you are in the area...)
I snapped quite a lot of pictures, but it was in the middle of the afternoon and the light was very harsh; so not a lot of them came out well. I have no experience in getting such pictures accepted in the DB (most of mine are cabin / window shots) so I would like your opinion on which shots, from the ones below, to potentially submit. Note: I haven't the "a.net editing" on the pictures; I just sized them down (click for a larger version); the quality is fine, I'm just looking for motiv feedback.
C-46D (power lines kill it?):
B-47E (overxposed on the nose?):
R5D-4 (overexposed on the nose?):
F-14D (yes, I chopped off the nose; but I think you get a bit more detail of the different equipment on the side of the Tomcat):
One more thing, would the B-17G, B-47E, and KC-135A be considered as "colorful", given the markings on their side?
Thanks once more for your time. Regards,
