Often simply written as "W/NW" - your favorite photos. Explain them, or let your photos (film or digital) speak for themselves.

The vignetting adds character.

Julio, the photo was taken yesterday at the Imperial War Museum Duxford, where the Historic Flight is based (as well as examples of every other aircraft ever to have flown).

We arrived before the morning fog had lifted and these Tiger Moths were lined up ready for the day. Here is the original image:

I used my Fujifilm X30 set to 200iso, f8, 1/750th, 25mm. I cropped the Harvard (North American Texan) out of the image and applied a vignette and a warm sepia overtone, to try and make the atmosphere more WW1.

In my youth, I was fortunate enough to fly a Tiger Moth. It is the most fun one can have with one's clothes on, in the air.

Graham, I visited the Duxford IWM back in 1991.

What a place! It rained all day, but the indoors exhibits were more than enough to keep me interested.

Excellent reworking of that image, Graham. I liked a lot of the others too, on Flickr.
