Skyraider Post Mid-Air

At the very end of the 2011 Duxford Legends air show there was a mid-air collision between the P-51 Mustang called Big Beautiful Doll and this Skyraider. The P-51 didn't survive the mid-air but the pilot was able to parachute to safety before the crash. The Skyraider was able to recover and land. Here is a photo of the Skyraider landing, missing several feet of wing torn off in the mid-air collision.

P-51 and Skyraider just before Mid-air

At the very end of the 2011 Duxford Legends air show there was a mid-air collision between the P-51 Mustang called Big Beautiful Doll and a Skyraider. The P-51 didn't survive the mid-air but the pilot was able to parachute to safety before the crash. The Skyraider was able to recover and land. This photo showing both planes flying in close formation was taken less than a minute before the mid-air collision.

B-17 Memphis Belle art

I don't normally do 'Photo Art', but decided I would experiment a little with a photograph of the Movie Memphis Belle B-17 that I took this weekend. I used a few different techniques to make the photo look like a watercolor drawing. I would like to get some feedback on whether or not this looks realistic or not.
