This is the second of three images I'll be posting of the interior of this Ilyushin Il-76 cargo plane. My previous entry was a shot of the cockpit (and included the back story of how Jason and I ran into a few problems with the local police), this one – a shot of the tail section – and a final image that I'll post on Friday: a shot of the lower section at the front of the plane (visible in this shot of Jason's).

As with my previous entry this is also (and obviously) an HDR, constructed from a bracketed sequence of 12 exposures with a 1 EV spacing using Photomatix Pro. And again, if you take a look at the original you can see the tone mapped image and small thumbnails of all 12 exposures. In this instance the post-production wasn't especially complicated, but it is worth mentioning that the rusty door or the right was pasted in from one of the original exposures as the tone mapped version ended up looking more than a bit overdone.

As always, let me know what you think.
