We all know that propeller hubs are perfectly round - they have to be to avoid vibration.

With that in mind:- look at the nearest hub in particular an make judgement on the ellipse that anything round migrates into when looked at an oblique angle. Even if the engine nacelle was not round in reality - the prop hub would be.

The cockpit area is very good - but the rest appears 2D flat even with the highlight on the engine cowlings. Not helped by the warmth of colour (port wing nationality marking) against a dull greyscale wing.

Perspective wise the port engine is longer in size than the starboard engine. This close to the subject and all lines of perspective would appear parallel. Which is the case with your cockpit canopy and oil cooler intakes.

The hard outline on the wing trailing edge and also the camouflage on the port wing is not up to your usual high standard.

I guess I am not a fan of this one; but learning points benefit everybody, and we all fall foul of being too close to the image and not seeing the wood from the trees.

Have spent time redoing this. Think it looks better.
