Just not sure about this HDR thing...

This is as "unprocessed" as I can get in the Nik HDR product. IOW, it's as close to simply blending exposures as I know how to do at this point, and yet, it's really not that "real" looking is it?

I think you could recover some reality by selectively boosting the contrast a bit, Jay.

PS. Love the clouds through the canopy. Fabulous touch.

I should of known since I made the decision to purchase Jim .. GF wanted to go shoppin' out of town so I was able to go by Best Buy and pick up a 32gig for it .. youtube said / showed it would take a 64gig, but they didn't have any so the 32 with like 9 hours should do the trick ......

I also looked at battery backpaks today Razor .. but didn't have H2 or info on me to determine if what I was looking at would work .. but as I look at it now - it appears the accessories may be backward compatible .. if not / I need to know what won't work, just give me a shout folks.

My 2 cents, I like the treatment you gave the shot.

I wish I could feel bad for you, my dear Shooter, but it just ain't happenin'. Would have loved to watch the whole thing unfold and learn something, that's for sure.

This plane is on my bucket list. Soooo much better looking than the F-22, IMHO.



Sad news of 747 crash in Bagram today. Killing all 8 on board. I was just on this plane last week talking with the maintenance crew. They were more than friendly and allowed me time to get some images of the flight deck.

May the crew rest in peace.

I concur. Having lived out at Eddy's Airplane Patch during the competition testing of the two, I thought this one had won as well. Surprised the heck out of me. Got used to the daily rounds of multiple sonic booms though, first from the 22 or 23, then the chase planes after they lit afterburners to catch up...

Sorry to hear about that plane crash

I was stationed at the little airplane patch as well during the flight testing of the two designs. I knew some of the folks who had worked on some of the flight tests and had received a few unclassified updates on what was taking place. It was an exciting place to be at the time...probably still is!

Miss that place (but I don't miss California).

Oh boy, do I regret not being able to make it there with you. Ah we'll, someday it'll be open to the public again.

Rather like how this turned out...



Many layers of tweaking on the B-17.
Sky and Mountains are fabricated.
Very slight lens flare on the near landing light.
Decided to go with a "Gallery Weighted" layout

Thoughts?
