It was still pretty dark out when I took this image but this shows how using HDR can pull out a picture that only a few years ago would have been almost imposable. This is a combination of 5 images merged together with Photomatix and cleaned up a bit in Photoshop CS5. The plane is lit from the outside hangar lights off to the left and the clouds were softened by the strong costal winds.
I took a little time to clean up the background making this a very simple and clean photograph.
