P-51 Mustang

I was fortunate to be able to grab some pictures of this P-51 Mustang on the ground at the Alliance Air Show in Fort Worth before the general public was allowed in the show.  I wanted to get more angles but I was already encroaching on an off-limits area and wasn’t going to push it.

I used 8 exposures for this and took a few liberties in processing to amp up the colors just a bit.  I wanted to clone out the light pole above the plane but as simple as that looks it can be hard to get it right when there are slight gradients in the sky colors.  I’ll work on it…
