APOD: DC-3

For today’s viewing pleasure: a gorgeous DC-3 spotted at Oshkosh 2013!

I like this image, but I also thought it would be fun to play with it in GIMP, my open-source version of Photoshop. So I did a selective-color operation on the prop blades and made the rest black and white. I’m not sure if I like it or not; the original photo leaves little to be desired in my opinion.

I’ve also thought about doing a red-only selective coloring, but I think I might leave it alone for now.
