    RAF Photographic Competitions

    Link: RAF - RAF Photographic Competitions

    Each year the Royal Air Force celebrates a year of photography through its annual photographic competition culminating with an awards ceremony.

    The aim of the competition is to encourage high professional standards within the Services photographic specialisation and to enhance the positive profile of the RAF. The RAF has more than 200 professional photographers, employed in all areas of the Service including station PR activity, technical, intelligence, reconnaissance, combat camera teams, videographers and airborne trials work.

    This image doesn't look right to me. There's obviously a tilt/shift filter used on the view of London, but this doesn't seem to apply to the jet. You can see where the focal plane is on the townscape, if this was applied to a single image the jet would be out of focus. I'd like to know how this image was achieved.

    My guess.
    Original is small aperture for maximum DOF.
    Layers (Isolate the Tornado from background).
    Sharpening (background).
    Tilt Shift (background).
    Gaussian Blur via brush (background).

    It's a good image. Is it really something you could call a 'photograph'?
