A dirty cold night

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 19 August 2013 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Sunderland Air Show 2013.
My tribute to the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, this is another Photoshop composite using two shots of the Avro Lancaster taken on the Saturday, and the new sky layer was taken the following day during a light shower. The rain was added later, here's a tutorial showing how I achieved the effect.
The central glow was created in Tiffen DFX.

PENTAX K100D 1/1500 second F/8.0 ISO 200 105 mm (35mm equiv.)
