Gentle Monty Pythonesque whimsy.

Many thanks for the kind comments. Regarding patriotism, I am not British by birth or by passport and patriotism per se is certainly very low-key aspect of everyday life in the UK. Occasionally it does break out however, and that was the moment during an air show, devoted to the daring do of the early aviation pioneers. Retro feel to the picture was almost inevitable in the dreary overcast conditions but I did try to recreate the 100-year-old feeling indeed (with a touch of modern life). Aknowledgement from ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' posthumous is therefore most highly appreciated. One must also aknowledge the boldness of the pilots who regularly take these 100-year old designs to the air.

Wonderful job of presenting a photo that very nicely represents the period, and with processing that makes the image look as if it was shot during the same period and hand colored.
This one connected with me.

great job recreating another era. I give this a ribbon simply for the magic.

haha nice desat. I really like the idea but I think it'd be more effective if you used a more macho plane.

with all the airline travel we have these days, it's hard to believe that this was less than 100 years ago...
