Re: Make the plane POP

Decided to have a go at this, duplicated the pic, desaturated the new layer and then did an equalise and set to overlay and reduced to 50% opacity. On a copy merged layer, ran a highpass and set to overlay mode. You could isolate the affect just to the plane with a mask

Re: Make the plane POP

I extracted the plane, set a Curves AJ to really lighten it. Duped, High Pass to sharpen.

On a background duplicate, I did a Lens correction vignette, and then a G blur. Made a gradient mask so the blur would not affect the foreground as much.

If I had time, I probably would have replaced the ominous sky.

Re: Make the plane POP

Here is another look that I thought you might like. brightened the plane slightly and faded the background in the first one, and faded the background a little less in the second one, but desaturated it completely.

I like that too Swampy. Just needs some prop motion blur.

Ok Swampy, Now you've inspired me to mess around with this thing.
