'Before and After' image (Catalina)
A Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina in flight is a glorious sight; a picture of it not necessarily so. But the combination of a perfect setting sun and the right beach scene has produced a favourite picture amongst my clients at Suffolk shows.  Fortunately, the original Catalina shot was against a plain 'white' sky, to which a neutral density filter could easily be added. Then the aircraft was matted into a cloud scene in such a way that the shadows on the fuselage matched the 'sight' lines of the sun, and then with the canvas size extended to create the portrait format, the beach was added from a separate shot, the whole then being given a golden 'sunset' tint.
