Mike looks really nice

One question is how you kept the shadow out from the plane underneath and kept the detail ?f

This was edited in an HDR program - shadow adjustments are a part of the process. I like the lighting and the detail it brings out. HDR is ok, I still prefer normal photography but it's fun to play around with, just something different...

The key is making sure all of that detail is in the first shot and not clipped... Well done Mike... on both accounts!
