    Decided to post one from a recent show that I didn't even provide to my client. They are simply not into this type of shot (past experience has proven that fact). But one that stuck out in my head that I can't stop looking at. There's nothing technically good about it. But sometimes it's just a feeling.

    And now for something completely different......

    Went to the Jamestown (South Australia) airshow on the weekend and saw quite a few vintage planes, so I thought I'd experiment with some PP for that 'vintage' look. May not be everyone's cup of tea, but hey, there's no harm in trying. Here's a lovely Beechcraft Model 18, of which over 9000 were built between 1937 and 1970.

    I love that technique but I lost my cheat sheet of steps. Any chance of a step by stpe in another thread or a link to whatever cheat sheet you used if you used one?

    I keep raving about MS ICE but every time I use it it just performs so well.

    Here is a 15 exposure panorama. Manual metering, camera held in portrait, CH and just hold the shutter button down and swing from left to right.
    The thing I like about this is that some of the guys were moving and in the individual shots you can see quite different body positions but ICE resolved the whole thing. I just hope MS never take this program out of beta because that will stuff it completely.

    If you want the full size (3745 x 1024) version it's on my Flickr

    Well, I could baffle you with bull...t about how I spent three hours adjusting various layers, histograms and luminance levels in Adobe CS4, but a) I'm just a beginner when it comes to Photoshop, and b) I really did cheat by using a great FREE editing program called PhotoScape (more info and download from www.photoscape.org ). It's quite powerful, has loads of features and is very simple to use.

    If I recall correctly I didn't have to crop the photo because for once I had moved in close enough so I didn't have to, I resized it, converted to b&w, messed around with brightness, contrast and a great feature called 'backlight' until I was happy, then applied one of the vignetting and 'antique' filters. All this took about 15 minutes -- and I'm a novice with the program.

    Here's another one with a different 'antique' filter applied. Note that I didn't superimpose one aircraft above the other; the lower one (a Chinese-designed and built Nangchang CJ-6, based on the Russian Yak 18) was waiting to taxi for takeoff once the Beech 18 had passed overhead.

    Les,

    Great pp work. I love the vintage stuff...

    Kiwi,

    Nice pano. I almost wish I'd not made the move to Mac, now that I see the kinds of results people are getting from some of the newer PC based software.
