Vulcan B1a XH498 Doing A Display in the 60s......

Recommended Posts

That is beautiful! The way you have shown it in the pictures are superb, especially the climb up with underside showing. How did you do these? Fantastic!

I like messing about with photoediting software as well, and as far as I'm concerned, this is THE shot of the bunch. I'd be hard pressed to tell it from a real aircraft, I don't know about anyone else...

Nice work,

Dean

Many thanks here are some the originals. using blue tak and a pen photos were taken on an iphone 4

The files were opened using the free to use programme GIMP. I first zoom in and use the clone stamp with a soft edge to remove the pen and gradually zoom out and clone my hands and the skyline. I then do various things like rendering for the smoke, motion blur in the right direction to the whole image by a very subtle amount, and then I desaturate the photo a little to grey all the colours to ad a little age and atmospheric distance into the mix.

here are a few other vulcans i have done.

Bloody excellent! With that editing and the finely judged grain they could easily be photos I took at airshows as a kid with an Instamatic. Really top notch skills. Thanks so much for sharing.

Cheers,

Roger
