I think it's too much grey liao. Not enough contrast. Makes the pic look flat. There should be black and white in a B&W pic, not all grey.
@Youhong... The DCC (marshaller guy) will not use flags to marshall the aircraft (only bare hands) and we only use light batons at night.
the dust...get your sensor cleaned.
yah, i forgot, great image. cropping it would do even better. more contrast would be a money shot.
the f16's short already but this angle makes the plane look a little stunted....
Many are culled, few are chosen
The sky is taking away the "spotlight" from the plane though i think
The shot would have worked better if the tree line and the pile of dirt (sorry, I cannot find the word for it) at the right hand side behind the person was photoshopped away. Or maybe by going lower in angle would have had a better effect... and also emphasized the sky much more... good shot nevertheless...
