Beautiful render.  I slept under the wings of one of these once, at a museum.

Thanks :)
My process is pretty simple.
Firstly I rendered the model against the photo background in  Lightwave 3D making sure that the lighting set up matches that seen in the photo.
I then took the render into Photoshop CS3 where I tweeked the levels to bring out the lighting and shadows and added a very slight gaussian blur. I then had to remove a part of the aircraft wing using the clone tool. Some light and shade was added using the Dodge and Burn brushes -mainly the light glinting off the canopy. I then warmed the image using the variations tool and then finally ran it through the Tiffen DFX fog filter to soften and tie the image together. Hopefully the attached animation will show the bare bones of the process....

Beautiful work, Graham! Love the lighting, its rich , moody, and really wraps the Lanc beautifully. The composition is great, too, simple and subtle. I've got a real soft spot for the Lancaster--my dad flew them in the RCAF and RAF, after he left the United States to go to Canada to join the war.

Thank you.  We occasionally have one fly over the house as part of the Battle of Britain Memorial flight, always a sight to see and a sound to hear. Wonderful aircraft.

Everytime I see this plane, I think of the Damnbusters - and their sacrifices  - bless them all :)

Excellent and worthy render sir :)
