Republic P-47D Thunderbolt

Made the now-traditional Christmas trip to the National Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center a few days ago.  Here’s the first, more to come.

Developed three exposures from a single RAW and processed them in Luminance HDR.  Then finished in Topaz Adjust 5 and OnOne Perfect Effects 4 Free.


For unto you is born this day a Saviour….

Number three in my Christmas Around the House series this year is this small nativity scene.  I photographed it in front of our Christmas tree to take advantage of the bokeh from the tree lights.

For this one, I tonemapped a single exposure in Luminance HDR, then finished it with Topaz Adjust 5’s cross-process filters and a bit of toning and vignette.

Here’s a short homily I found meaningful, so I thought I would share.
