I think the new shot is MUCH better and more realistic and am quite pleased with how it came out. The SR-71 is without a doubt my favorite aircraft ever made, and the Udvar-Hazy Center is my favorite spot that I have visited to take photos (St. Matthews Cathedral is 2nd, but that might be replaced during my trip to Orlando and Cape Canaveral next month!).
If you are so inclined, please feel free to leave any comments or feedback. Also remember that clicking on the photo takes you to my online gallery hosted over at smugmug where you can view this (and my other photos) in various sizes. If you enjoyed this post, please take the time to pass my post(s) on to others whom you also feel would enjoy my work. Thanks for stopping by!
