B-17 Engines
I recently got to see the Wings of Freedom group again at Moffett Field. I'm not sure why, but I didn't get many shots that I liked. I'm not sure if it was the setup of the planes, the harsh mid-day sun, or just a lack of creative spark but either way I came away with a lot of shots, and only two or three that I liked. This is an HDR shot of the engines of the B-17G Flying Fortress. I don't normally like doing what I call "parts of" shots, but this one worked for me.

Photo details: As I mentioned it is an HDR composed of seven brackets then processed in Photomatix Pro. From there I put it through the Topaz Labs suite of plug-ins. I know I've mentioned it a couple times (at least) earlier, but Clarity is my new favorite tool. I literally can't wait to get to that step in my process. To finish the shot off I used Star Effects to add some flair.
