In the desert with clipped wings

In the desert with clipped wings

Last September we spent a few days in the Black Rock Desert at Balls 27, the wild west event of high power rockets. My rocket buddy Steve Jurvetson invited us to visit the Boeing 747, that was parked at the edges of the playa. It is an art piece at Burning Man called Big Imagination // 747 Camp. A decommissioned 747 was sliced into pieces so that it could be transported over regular roads from southern California to the Black Rock Desert. One wing serves as a dance floor.

I processed a paintery and a balanced HDR photo from three RAW exposures, merged them selectively, carefully adjusted color balance and curves, and desaturated the image. I welcome and appreciate constructive feedback.
