Phillip
Welcome aboard. This is a great community and all criticism is definitely constructive. We were supposed to be starting a square-rigger cruise from St Maarten a couple of years ago, but the ship had to go into dock so we changed to one starting in Barbados - I managed to see the island from afar but have always wanted to visit. I love P-47 "Jugs" After snafu went stateside last year I don't think there is one flying in the UK at present!

I reworked this according to what I learned in Jay's post-processing talk at Madras. Thanks, Jay, it makes a real difference!

Which crop do you prefer? I can't do a full-span 3:2 because of the position in the frame.

I prefer the tight one Steve, although, I think the first one would look awesome if you were able to let it have more sky.

Hi all and thanks for the numerous & warm welcome, and for checking out my shots.

WW2 aircraft was my first interest in military history from when I was about 10 years old. I learned all sorts of details, specs and histories of the aircraft, and even the difference yet interrelatedness of the Allison & Rolls Royce Merlin inline engines with Mustangs through the D model. I thought it was normal for a 10-12 year old kid. I found out when I started dating in high school that it is not the case.. use your imagination as to what happened in the awkward years after ;-)

I had the fortunate opportunity 15 years ago to ride on a B-17. It was part of a fundraiser for the McMinnville (Oregon) Historical Flight Museum. Below are photos/film scans from before the time I became a more serious photographer. I sat in the tail gunner position as we took off. It was eerie - the craft did not force through the air, rather it floated up like a heavy balloon, yawing in the wind. I was struck by the solitude in the tail position, entirely cut off from anyone else on the plane. I had read about the experiences of tail gunners in this regard, but to experience it was a different matter altogether. It was instantly easy to feel like everyone else on the plane didn't even know that I was there. I felt like a stowaway. If that is anything like how these gunners felt, all the while getting shot at, during the war, well, all I can say is that my respect for such (or any) veterans is even greater.

Quite an eye opener. I hope you enjoy the shots.

Steve,

There's a noticeable difference in the editing. The images on the previous page seem a bit muddy in comparison.

As for which crop, I personally prefer traditional 3:2 crops, however I think the wide crop would look great printed as a wide canvas.

I'm with McGrath there Steve I, I like the second one on my screen, but I think the first would actually be more compelling in print if that makes any sense at all.

I've encouraged this poster in the Sports forums to give us a visit. A couple more invitations probably wouldn't hurt.
