The Supermarine Spitfire, Hero of the Battle of Britain

Artist's Description

The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries throughout the Second World War and on into the 1950s as a front line fighter and in secondary roles. It was produced in greater numbers than any other Allied fighter design and was the only Allied fighter in production throughout the war.

This vintage plane was shot at the Shoreham-by-Sea airshow in the UK during August 2011. I used a Canon 5D MKII with Canon EF70-200 f2.8L IS USM zoom and 2x teleconverter. Three other cloud and sky images were blended in along with a light texture in Photoshop. Topaz Remask and Adjust 5 were also used. ===2/8/2012 views 173 =
