Image of the Month
Checking his Spitfire. A Second World War pilot checks under his aircraft before setting out on a mission. Taken (obviously) at a re-enactment evening, this one run by Timeline Events at North Weald airfield. I often feel that images from these sessions can look too “modern” – maybe too sharp or too much texture – and I worked quite hard in Photoshop to produce a softer, darker image while still keeping some detail. A great model, who kept a perfect serious expression throughout.
Technical: NIKON D800, f=200.0 mm, ISO1000, 1/80 sec @ f4.0
The image posted here each month is typically a new addition to the site. Sadly it often doesn't happen on time – or at all – despite my best intentions to do the update in the first few days of each month. I'm conscious that it's been a very long time since this page was updated! Earlier Images of the Month are shown in the growing IOTM Archive, which is now spread over several pages.
