Beware The Hun In The Sun

3,779-5-69 ... A trick photo combining two of my photos.

 

"Beware the Hun in the sun" was a rule for allied pilots in W.W.I.

 

The reason was that a clever German tactic was to approach the target from the direction of the sun, which made it difficult for the allied pilot to see the enemy approaching.

 

I'm sure the Germans had a similar rule to avoid the allied pilots using the same trick.

 

Cameras:

Sky : Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 (Straight out of the camera)

Plane: Sony MVC-CD1000 (2.1 megapixel antique)

 

Software:

"Adobe Photo Deluxe Home Edition 3.0" which came free with a scanner circa 1999. (Used to cut out plane from it's original background, then paste onto new background)
