Thanks for the many comments about how I created the photograph of the Snowbirds Canadian flying team. Was asked to go up with them; I chose slide film (transparency film). Because it was impossible to get the sun so big and dramatic-after wards I shot another frame on my slide film of a yellow bottom slightly out of focus-close up and sandwiched the slides together and had the lab produce a 4x5 negative. I took a coarse from Robbin Parry who montaged many of his images that way.
