Fly-in to Victory Ground Crew

In an earlier post we looked at the Reflections of the Fly-in to Victory Day at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia. Not only were there the warbirds for everyone to admire but there were also a group of reenactors representing the Fly-in to Victory Ground Crew.  As with the planes like the P-51 Mustang Ain’t Misbehavin’ getting clear shots of these authentically dressed re-enactors without visitors or other trappings of modern life in the picture was very difficult.  In fact, this was the only shot I was able to get of just the re-enactors.  I did, though, have to use Photoshop to carefully remove the ropes and stands which kept the visitors off of the runway which you see in the background.

I used a combination of tools in Photoshop to remove the unwanted objects in the background.  I followed this with the plug-ins from On-One Software and others has enabled me to create a detailed finished appropriately tinted to represent the period that the re-enactors clothing perfectly represented.
