This is a shot of the powerplant of a P47 from the HUN Hunter based in Seiverville, Tennessee at the Tennessee Air Museum. This was taken at the Greeneville (TN) Fly-In and is an HDR (high dynamic range) pic taken with a Nikon D90 and modified with Photoshop and Photomatrix.
Ed. Note: John provided a link to some other shots on his photo blog, which you can see here. (P.S. That blog is chock full of gorgeous HDR nature photography — and if Thursday's AVwebFlash runs late, it's almost certainly the reason.)
