Simply superb capture and the over all feel is very dramatic and good use of tones too i think it really adds to it, well done

I shot this while doing a picture story on the Republic of Korea Air Force. I was in the back seat with a Leica M2 and 21mm Super Angulon lens, but I needed to see the oriental face to make that point. I asked the pilot to push-up his visor, lean left, look at the sunset, and then took the picture. Since we were very close and in the blind spot under the tail of the other jet plane, it was not a place to be for very long. Thanks so much for the honor. Still trying for one of those new Leicas! jwvestal
