Too Vertical or Not?

There are many basics to this photography thing and one of the principle ones is do you compose vertically or horizontally? With some subjects the answer comes naturally. Take for instance these B-25’s. They are long, wide, and pretty difficult to compose vertically. The hardest part I always found with them is that the engines are far enough apart that it is hard to get both engines are even just one in and make it look good.

These are just a couple of quick shots from Ohio. Top one is Devil Dog, a B-25 that is painted in Marine Corps colors and the bottom is Show Me a B-25J from CAF Missouri. The fun fact with these planes is when you look at them head on, they just look totally bad ass. Most have five machine guns some, like Devil Dog, have a whole lot more!
