Thanks, Mary! I appreciate the very kind comment, and I'm glad you like it. My first impression of this image was "at least I only wasted electrons", but through the wonders of black and white conversion, I found an image I could live with.
Thank you sir. I struggled with this shot a little bit because I couldn't come up with a decent composition. I finally positioned myself so that the propellers lined up in an interesting way. It seemed to be made for B&W, so I did a quick conversion to see how it looked. I'm glad that you like it, and I appreciate your kind comment.
