I was bored so I started messing around with multiple exposures. I didn't have a tripod so I was just firing off 3 round bursts. Problem is, the shutter speed changed to get the bracketing. When the photos were blended together it made darker spots and some lighter spots in the props. Not a huge deal. But I also added the originals for comparison. Any thoughts either way? BTW, sun was straight up for these. One reason I wanted to HDR. :confused:

Minimal editing was done to HDR and non HDR. Just some cropping and retouching of the sky and exposure.

is this A/C a lighter gray than other 130's? the fuselage seems a bit too blue compared with others that I've seen

either way, its cool that the AF started it up just so you could take some pics :)

I like the HDR on the first, maybe tone down the yellowish tarmac a bit. The regular image for the second is my favorite.

Its the same as other USAF herky birds. Navy and Marines are painted differently. I think I need to work on my PP with these, not quite where I like em. I didnt notice the too blue color. Thanks!:D

I know people who know people, its how I get some of my shots.:mrgreen:

I like #2. Wish you hadn't also sharpened the prop blur when you sharpened the rest of it.

This looks like 95-832, which would make it a 1969 year HC-130N model, with URC mod. I believe they re-named the HC-130P to MC-130P's at some point, but not sure about the "N" models. Could be.

The prop blur is from the 3 frames. The camera bracketed using different shutter speeds. Thats what happened when photomatix put them together. Grrr

Great shots... The 130 is one of my all-time favorite birds!

Where were these shots taken? I'm trying to narrow down the location by the "MC" designator... I know most units that operate them are AFSOC operations, with the exception of the 129th out of Moffett Field. Am I getting warm? :mrgreen:
