    fantastic selective, sweet tight frame, amazing colour and perspective!
    it has a pointy thing at the front and it’s red so it must be fast … o and there’s no props either ๐Ÿ˜‰

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/maycontaintracesofnuts] ahh. wow, that would make a test pilot feel ultra special … easier to distinguish in the air i guess .. or otherwise. am i being a bit dark? possibly yes.

    Great composition. I like the selective colour, it works fine here.
