Know your camera : an orange filter created dramatic quality

This photograph of a parked DC-3 twin-engined airliner demonstrates the effect of an orange filter used with the camera lens. A ground crew man stands on a ladder near the left engine. He tots a hose from a fuel truck. Another man sits on the wing between the engine and the fuselage.
