Title: Il-2m3 "25" Mstitel (above Berlin)
Post by: 66misos on October 03, 2014, 02:17:04 PM
Hi,
here is colorized well-known photo of Il-2m3 "25" Mstitel (Avenger) flying above Berlin in 1945.

Original photo is photo-montage of (at least) two separate photos, so I used the same artistic license and made two alternatives, while the same original bw photo is on the top of both pictures.

1.) More quite version, similar to the original part of the photo:

2.) More "dynamic" war-time photo:

Whole discussion with source photo is at http://sovietwarplanes.com/board/index.php?topic=1874.0 (http://sovietwarplanes.com/board/index.php?topic=1874.0)

I hope you like them.

I like them a lot! Excellent job, 66misos! It gives a good impression of what a real colour photograph of the Il-2 would have looked like from the GPW. Too bad the Soviets didn't have colour film (perhaps they had some, but I've never seen a colour GPW photograph, unless it were taken by the Germans!).

Regards,

Jason

I like them too, but they could have been better.   ;)
