So this is your Mustang, a D model here. The name "old crow" reminds me of something, it must have been chosen after an ace's plane. Personnally, I like the plane best in the unpainted aluminium of the latter stage of the war, when Allied air spuperiority was such that they did not bothered with camouflage anymore.
All the best,

These had to be one of the best looking aircraft of their era, very organic lines. Well captured, good SS to show a little blur on the prop. Good colours and sharpness also. Nice work and thanks for sharing.

This looks farmiliar. I like how you've captured the prop in motion. Really nice detail in this image as well. TFS.

Aaah, the beauty of a warbird...
What I really like here is how well you have captured the movement of the propeller. It seems to be just the right amount of blur to let me almost hear the drone of the V-12 Merlin engine...
Colours look well preserved, somewhat tinted but I feel this works well in this photo as it gives a hint of nostalgia to the photo.
Thank you for sharing.
