I copied three images that Captain Arthur C. Fiedler, Jr. took at Lake Lesina as a panoramic shot. The images had never been put together before, so I set about it with photoshop, I then hand-coloured the image (including every last check on the rudders and elevators) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

The final result can be seen here. The image as it is,has never been seen before, although one of the images appears in the front cover of Herky! The Memoirs of a Checkertail Ace, they have never been joined together and certainly never in colour.

Hope you like it, cheers, MP.

Stunning work!

It looks just like a period colour shot and in my opinion much better than some of the WWI colourized photos that I've seen done by professional image companies! Added to that you have stiched 3 photos together seemlessly!

Beautiful!
