COMPOSITION- This shot has a very interesting composition. I would have liked to see more of the plane, but I also like the angle that it was taken, that it makes the wing seem really long. I don't know if it's suppose to be long or what. I would have liked to see the whole wing though. You've got some great vivid colors in this. Good composition in not having the plane centered to make like a horizon, that is a good thing. People seem not to like shots cut in half.

BACKGROUND- background is very simple, a great looking blue. I wonder how it would have looked if the wing was red or another color, cause the wing kind of blends into the background.

CAMERA WORK- Camera work is great. Great DOF and lighting on the plane. It isn't overexposed.

DIGITAL PROCESSING- very nice, image is free of artifacts and jaggies. Coloring is great.

MY OPINION- I think this is a good shot. At first I thought that this was a real plane and I didn't really look at it. I like the look of it. I just felt that the wing was kind of cut off. The colors are great though.

I like the subject, but I think it could be improved with a different angle, maybe so that there was more of the glider in view. - 7 - Mav

Very nice composition. I like the lines/angle. The wing blends in a little too well with the sky.

Beautiful photo. If I had anything to complain about, the wings are a bit too close to the color of the sky, but wow, this is just great! 9 Swash

Nice! I can appreciate the unique position you must have been in to capture this one.

Very neat glider, but where's the rest of it. It's too beautiful to cut any of it out. You would have gotten a better affect with all of it. Deep rich colors nicely done though. Zoom out and get a 10. Where it is a 7. PTL
