As a child I grew up building model aircraft, mostly warplanes and on the box were paintings of the models in dog fights, attacking high with the sun behind them. Many of the images were really top notch and could have passed for a photo. That inspired this image and the sun flare, that had to be painted in as it is too perfect to be a photo.

Many artists paint WWI and WWII war-planes in action. ' . substr('//www.lyonsstudio.com/catalog/products/images/1051_d.jpg', strrpos('//www.lyonsstudio.com/catalog/products/images/1051_d.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

love the image - interesting point the lens flare only came about as a result of the invention of photography - so its a photograph inspired by paintings (war comics is my guess) - inspired by photography :D I like the recursive aspect of that.

I like the photo. For a painting,I'm not sure. Seems to have the main element take up too little of the canvas.
