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.

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!

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.

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

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

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.

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