The aircraft are too small to see the wing walkers. Without your title, I might have missed the wing walkers altogether.

However, I like the overall composition--the 2 aircraft are nicely placed in the frame and the curved trail of smoke conveys the sense of where they came from and where they are headed. A blue sky background would have been ideal!

Besides the comment above . . . the composition is very dynamic. The strong angle of the planes. The arc of the trail. Even the clouds are very dynamic. I love it!

Lovely shot! I love everything except that one can't make out the wing walkers!

a larger photo would have been much more dynamic. The wingwalkers are lost in the picture. I only see them, as I know what to look for, they however look like they're the landing gear instead.. Getting pictures of them standing, instead of lying down would have been a lot better..

Using the full frame aspect of your camera probably would have yielded a better picture, instead of the condensed.

I dont know if the OP has changed the photo in response to complaints about it being too small, but for me, a couple clicks and it fills my screen. Great shot.

Once again Bynx you have made me feel silly. I just clicked on the picture and it came up full screen from Flicker. So I am changing my original statement to, just print it big, mount it and enjoy.

Bynx, and here I thought you like me. I did really feel a little silly for not thinking about clicking on the picture to enlarge the view. Then again I tend to do things like that more than I will admitt too.
