It's made from about 120 separate parts. The sky was photographed from my back garden on an 80-200mm VR lens on a Nikon D3 sat to Raw.

P-51 was then captured in-game with the sun matched to the position of the real picture, at a resolution of 1900x1200, as-was the FW-190.

I then ejected the 190 canopy and captured that image.

I cut the wing and aileron and pasted them back in at seperate points.

I cloned and pasted bits of debris, added the smoke and flame.

Then added lens flare to the metal of Art's plane, with outline shine to key areas on the fuselage.
Added smoke to his exhausts, the blue 'over-burn' flame to the stacks. Added a new model pilot and propellor.

Balanced the Curves and levels to blend the objects together.

Flattened the image.

Added text.

Job done. Approx 16-hours http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Cheers, MP.

Very nicely done, I think I'm gonna use it as my IL2 background. Not to sound like a jerk or anything. But is it just me or are the planes a little too dark? I know the sun is above the planes hence our angle/view of the planes is in the shade. Not so much the wings, but the fuselage is completely black.

There must be something wrong with my monitor as it looks like an overdone HDR to me. P-51 is almost black, the sky looks like Earth seen from the orbit http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif And the poor FW-190 looks like it's been attacked by rats from space which like to nibble at the aluminum http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
