Aviation Photo #1101691 North American P-51D Mustang - Untitled

[ Medium Large ]
47 of 64
This shot was taken from below looking up at the underside of the P-51's nose as the skies over Oshkosh darkened ominously. The fill flash against the dark boiling skies overhead give the plane in this image a sense of being removed from the background.

The fill light on subject gives the shot depth as it enhances the contrast against the stark background, i like the unusual angle, it's well framed, minimal flash hot-spot on the subject, i like the partial illumination of the bottom right side of the fuselage.

Wow, stays on my desktop for a long time. I just love the power and beuty of the mustang. It's probably the fastest one-prop plane in the world withe a max speed at over 800km/h. Magnificent photo, with lovely colors and contrast.

What a dramatic composition! It's a simile to the theater of operations this aircraft saw in the dark skies brought on by WWII. How so very fitting for such a bird.
