You are a very good Photoshop artist and then we can even buy your doctored photos. Nice with free advertising, isn't it?

This photo is not doctored at all. I am not sure why that was your first assumption. Additionally I do not sell any of my photos, they are posted online for the enjoyment of other enthusiasts.

I think it is a great unaltered image. All the aircraft are in sharp focus, props are slightly blurred, light is nice. We could probably enlarge this enough to see the photographer on the crowd line in the side of the F-86 or P-51! Had to be a pretty long focal length to compress the formation, 'cause the guys with antique planes don't like to get too close...nice shot Michael.
Roy Hunte
A beautiful shot Michael.
Joseph Immermann
If he Photoshpped this, then he was lucky enough to find four aircraft in exactly the correct scale in exactly the right flight configuration, with sunlight coming from exactly the same direction, with pilots all looking in the exactly correct direction for the formation. Lighten up, and do some homework before you throw out wild accusations, Mr. Eskildsen. Great shot, Michael!
