3. The image can be photo-shopped to some extent, levels changes, cropping, sharpening etc. are all acceptable. The photograph must retain it’s initial subject though, don’t make it something it’s not, (cutting and pasting the moon into the shot or another aircraft, for example). HDR images are not acceptable.

from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been,

XH135 English Electric Canberra PR9 RAF RIAT Fairford 17 July 2006. Groundcrew prepping the jet for departure (except the one 'checking' the undercarriage). As the navigator sits in a hinged nose compartment, this is the strangest of canopy arrangements.
