This is a photo that I would call "Perfection". Wish I will ever get the chance to log an hour with a DC 3.

Awsome picture, great plane and great environment

A visitor from Germany posted Mon July 30, 2007:
This shot is simply marvelous. When I see it, it reminds me of the feeling I got the first time I flew, and how whenever I leave the sky, I long to return.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed April 25, 2007:

Great photo! Very dramatic. Black and white photography is the best. Could make a good postcard.

When you did it black and wait it takes it back to the early thirty's, with colour it would not be the same.

I love it...

A visitor from Belgium posted Fri April 21, 2006:
Now this is a great shot. Rule of thirds, good use of texture in the sky (filter or post processing?). A nice distraction from the boring frame filling centered sideviews of jetliners. Wim.

A visitor from Portugal posted Sun March 12, 2006:
The intire photo is an amazing piece of art. Very good. :)

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 24, 2006:
The black and white really adds to the visual contrast, and the clouds overhead make it look almost surreal. I want this hanging in my living room!

A visitor from United States posted Mon December 26, 2005:
I was in Sintra about two years ago but I didn't see this ol' plane as Luis Pontes was able to. My hat is off to you sir. Truly beautiful...just like the city itself. Anyone visiting Portugal please support the local pilots and museums...they need all the assistance possible.

Truly stunning; what's great is that it's enhancd by having less (color)
