One of my first attempts at HDR, 3 shots at 1.7 stops apart, I also took a 1 min exposure using a hoya ND400 to get the streaky sky and then blended it in afterwards.

Undecided on this so all comments welcome.
Cheers
Steve

Well, I like it. It's very dynamic and makes the machine look monolithic. I like how you have done the sky as it contrasts nicely with the FG being so dry, hard and textured. Works really well.

Very dramatic, with the wide-angle distortion of the machinery and the explosive looking sky. (I like that half-flat rear tyre !) Click.

Works well. Good low viewing angle and the sky forces attention back down to the truck. Suits the BW approach too.

I like it a lot. The sky is what captured my attention at first, but with a closer look the tractor looks actually amazing. I'd like to know your technique you used for the B&W. I would remove the sky as it is too distracting. Less is more.
Well done.
