About the Image(s)

I found this one in a junkyard that I came across. I loved the front of the truck, looking like Grommet in a cartoon series. (if you are not familiar with him, google the name).
As usual, I used Photomatix for the HDR.

Paul, the detail is excellent, and you use of photoatix really brought out the colors of the truck and the weeds. I would have cropped out the right side to get rid of the items around the tree, and darken the road a bit. The light on the right causes me to look at it first and then the car.   Posted: 10/18/2020 18:48:16

Paul, I agree with Richard about the treatment bringing out the colors of the scene. I suggest that you layer the dark exposure onto the image and use a layer mask to add its version of the road into your final image, essentially toning it down. Also crop a little bit more on the right. I would also have liked to have seen a little more at the top of the image, so that the roof of the truck isn't so close to the top.   Posted: 10/22/2020 09:57:14
