Aircraft Photography – A Little Grunge

Here’s another aircraft image taken last fall at the Wings Over Houston air show that I liked but never could decide how best to present. I’ve always liked the “grunge” look ever since I saw some of Dave Hill’s incredible work and found a grunge tutorial on Jeff Revell’s blog describing a simple Photoshop technique to achieve similar results.
