This is another angle on “Mitch The Witch II” that was featured in an earlier post. As described in the earlier post, “Mitch The Witch II” has had a colorful history and is still flying out of the Palm Springs Air Museum. I’ve started playing with the HDR Pro filter in Photoshop CS6 and used it on this image, I am liking the results I am getting with this, but I have also recently upgraded to HDR Efex Pro 2 and am liking those results also.
Prints of this and other aircraft are available here: http://goo.gl/zZohQ .
This is the Friedkin restoration hanger at the Planes of Fame air museum, Chino Airport, Chino, California. In the foreground a Canadair F-86-E fighter is being restored, the aircraft behind it seems to be a North American B-25 undergoing restoration. Canadair was the Canadian licensee for the manufacture of the F-86, which was originally developed by North American Aviation. As with many of the other aircraft exhibited at the Planes of Fame, the F-86 is being restored to total airworthiness and will be part of the flying collection in the future.
There was quite a difference in contrast between the dark interior of the hanger and its outside walls which I ended up burning in using control points in Nik HDR Efex Pro.
