It's been a while!  The last post was in February.  I'm slipping. :D

 

Here's a Rolls Royce as taken from the only Junkers 52 with a single engine:

And here's a Curtiss/Wright Cyclone radial:

Amazing engineering captured in interesting detail, thanks for posting David.

Great subject for HDR.  I'd dearly love to see more :)

Just to comment on the Wright radial motor.  There seems to be a slight bit of camera shake or layer misalignment maybe ?

The RR picture looks stunning

Probably camera shake, Roderick.  Both of these are just single shots.  All I do is take the single shot, create two virtual copies in LR's Develop module, take them into the Library module and make one 2 stops overexposed and one 2 stops underexposed, leaving the third original.  Back to the Develop module where I highlight all three and send them to Photomatix Pro 5. 

 

That guarantees that it was a shaky photographer and not an alignment problem. I plan to go back on a weekday when they first open and take a tripod to do some serious HDR shooting.  The place is a target rich environment for anyone that likes to play around with HDR.

 

I did that "trick" with this tank from the WWII Museum in New Orleans:  HDR isn't so good with people in the frame, but this gives you an idea that HDR can be done without taking a lot of exposures.  It does lose a bit in translation, but it does give the grunge sort of look.

I like that one !  It has a hyper real look to it, almost like a model diorama :)

Looking forward to the results of your next visit.

A lovely use of HDR David,the shots really pop off the screen mate, nice work.

The third shot looks like a toy set up,I think it really suits the PP.

Thanks, Chimpy!  I never gave it a thought, but you're right about the toy setup.  You have to look pretty close to realize that those are real people.
