Those composites are very cool.

And Glenn, your rework of that image is excellent, it really pops now.

Guys, hug your wives an extra time or two today and tell them what they mean to you. I went to shore a good friend up this morning as he buried the love of his life. She's in Christ's arms, but he's going to be hurting until they are together again. It was especially poignant, because their relationship was like the one Sheila and I have, they were inseparable. Rosemary was 78 and they had a wonderful life together, still the loss is palpable.



Kinda like the last line in Jimmy Doolittle's book, I could never be so lucky again...

As my Buddy Glenn would say......."egggzactly!"

On the legal front. I had JR look over the aerial photography law in New Hampshire. His opinion is that it strictly applies to unmanned drone photography. We're going to look at it together over the weekend.

Glad to be of service, Glenn! It's not often I get to add any value around here, and I'm glad you liked the thought. Love the final image... "best of" portfolio material if I ever saw any.

I had some unexpected free time this afternoon before I travel to an architectural shoot. I decided to play with my composite image and create a couple of versions. I also tried to incorporate some improved post processing techniques. Please take a look and share your C&C. Don't sugar-coat things, tell me where improvement is needed.

I intend to add a squadron logo and title (aka Messrs. Luedey) in the area below the wing. I have an interest in presenting an nice print of this image to Lt. Col. Wolfgeher and want it to be as good as I can get it.

Thanks - Jeff

CAF Airpower History Tour is in town (hence FiFi) and while I was having a nice chat with Scott Slocum (he's pitching My Bombshells goodies under one of FiFi's wings), a couple of transient C2 Greyhounds taxied in for gas.

I really like the 2nd one Jeff. I think the profile works quite well in B&W with the lower image in color. I have one idea but I'm having difficulty trying to figure out a way to explain it haha

I don't see any way in which I could improve that image, Jeff. But if it helps, I prefer the second with the profile in mono and the foreground Viper in color.

To me it feels like the head-on fighter is the real airplane since it's complete and matches the rest of the image, and the profile is a memory or a thought since it's incomplete and only occupies part of the image. Based on that mentality (intuitive, not reasoned) it seems more "accurate" to have the real aircraft be in color and the thought/memory be in mono.

Thanks Mike and Rodolfo for you comments. Mike I hope you find the words to describe the enhancements you would recommend - I'd very much appreciate it. In the mean time, here is some more fun with image #2. Thoughts, critique? I am wondering if the insignias are too large?

Like it, Jeff. But I do think the insignias are too large for the overall balance. Try smaller versions, and swap places with the two lines of text beneath them.

Thinking about 15% too big on the unit insignia, and just a thought to put the nose right on the rule of thirds intersection. It's in the ballpark as it is though, just thinking aloud.
