I was Walking the Static line of the 'Thunder over Michigan' air show early in the morning and took this picture of a beautiful Skyraider facing into the sun. I almost deleted it on the spot as it was extremely blown out, but I liked the composition and thought I would see what could be done with it on the computer.
