this is a composite of like about 6 pictures taken at different timings and lighting conditions.
background is taken about 4 years ago by a D30. the plane on the left was in the below deck hanger with the wings folded and the 'runway' was non-existant to begin with.
i'll welcome any suggestions on how to make it look more 'real'
and btw all pictures are not taken by me. i'm merely the DI artist here.
yes they still need to turn into the wind to launch aircraft.. plus having to steam at speeds of above 35 knots.. all these just to get airflow over the wings of the aircraft so that there is enough lift for it to fly off the deck.
you can clearly see the landing strip and the 4 catapults in the above picture.
Thanks. The original composition was already pretty good. Apart from the catapult.
Oh yeah, the bunch of planes on the right seem rather tightly packed and repeated. So maybe lesser planes or make em not so aligned.
Composition is pretty clean. I can imagine some effort in doing this.
