A few days ago I had the opportunity to photograph air-to-air the British Taylorcraft Auster MkV. The light was very nice and the results of this few minutes session you have below.

And what's "not sexy" about that? :dunno:

Some excellent shots (No.7 is pick of the bunch for me)- I thought the background more authentic! :lol: :clap:

I agree about the aircraft not being sexy, bit the pictures certainly are ;)

O yes it is authentic. Original plan was to have the aircraft surrounded by Oil Seed Rape but either field was too small or airplane was too big ;)

Pure class!i can think of many aircraft less 'sexy' than a cammo Auster and I think you have done extremely well to achieve some contrast between aircraft and ground.
After all that was and is the very reason for displaced pattern camouflage.
If a man speaks in the middle of a forest and no woman can hear him, is he still wrong?

That is a great set, for me though, No6 steals the show. :clap: Love Austers.

Of course you can :) It's small, private field near Konstancin Jeziorna, Poland.
