Hi all.
Here's a few HDR efforts on vintage cars i shot last weekend at the Newport pagnell carnival, Bucks hope you like them.
Thanks for taking the time to look at and comment on my last posts i really appreciate them all very much.
Hope you all have a great week.
Cheers Ricky.
PS Thanks a million to my friend Astyaglink who along with his tutorials on youtube, taught me all i know about HDR processing, You are the HDR king!

Not the world's greatest fan of HDR, but certainly works with these images. V7, by a long way for me. Love the wonderful tones and the reflection as well as the composition.

I have just learnt what HDR stands for Ricky.I thought it was Heavy Duty Rust !! I love the chunky line of these old classic cars.Always fancied going to Cuba to see all the ones there.And they have cigars that are so big,it would take me a fortnight to smoke one of them !! Some nice dusky looking maidens there too.A bonus would be to meet one of them if she owned a classic car.But I would find it a bit off putting if she pulled out a big cigar and asked me for a light !! It is all a just a dream anyway.My wife will not let me go !!
Good set.
Mick.

Haha, that's great mate Smile I am blushed!! Hey I just came from Oman, Muscat, hmmm, unfortunately couldn't do much in capturing scenes since I went for marketing. I will try uploading some panoramas tomorrow. Overall, I had some great experience and saw some diverse ecosystems. Lots of Scots!! Had an engineer friend who use to be in Dubai, he just luuuvs Middle East's hot, dry, sandy environment Grin Asked him why you choose Dubai and Muscat? "Scotland is too cold for me" he replied Grin
Mate your HDRs are getting very good, I am so pleased to see your HDR works and best of all these positive comments which really shows you are doing well! V2 and V7 are best.

Ricky, while tone mapping try to use the light smoothing radio buttons more to the right for more realistic look. Well, how would I know you have chosen the second radio button from left of light smoothing? by looking at the edges of your objects (definitely the cars are your objects here) there's a gap of colour (white) at the outer edges of the car and trees, plus those potentially beautiful looking clouds are a bit over-grayed... all of these can be solved while tone mapping simply select the radio buttons of light smoothing to the right. Please, do try and upload some, I want to see the result, whether I was right or wrong and do not mark this comment as constructive critiques unless you see the result with your own eyes... Smile cheers mate, all the best, regards to family
