This is a close-up view taken of the Wright R-3350 engine on the Historical Flight Foundation’s 1958 Eastern Airlines DC-7B aircraft featured in other images here in my galleries. This plane is in operational condition.
Please see my other images of this wonderful airplane:
Captured from outside the aircraft, sitting on the wing using a Canon 5D, Tamron 28-300 VC lens, three exposures stabilized with a tripod (because I certainly wasn’t too stable with some oil on the wing!!)
Tonemapped to an HDR using Photomatix, and color processed in Aperture.
