    What are you 12??? Good job of offering some sort of insight :thumbdown:

    Anyway, I like the shot, but I think it lacks some contrast. It may work better as a black and white with more contrast... Just play around with it... The composition is good, and I think its actually funny, because the guy has his hands over his head... So in that respect, the shot is good... Just play with the tones alittle bit and I think that will make a big difference...

    The problem with sepia here is the headphones! They look totally anachronistic. The sepia itself looks good.

    Thanks for the input!
    I didnt have a cipea choice. I was just going for a fitting look for the shot. Not sure of the exact specs for the plane but it was a bywing. They were having engine troubles but im trying for candid shots wich is new to me.

    there's something about that paint work that goes nice with the sepia tone. but the b&w is cooler i think.
