Good result. I'm not a big fan of the shots where it's obvious it's HDR and been tone mapped to death.

Thanks folks, glad the HDR & TM'ing doesn't look false, as mentioned that was my aim.

Sorry for the delayed response but I've hit the ground running this morning at work Sad

The sky comes out really well in the HDR and makes for a very strong image. I really like the sun on the tyres. Great work Paul.

Defo the colour version for me. The B & W doesn't have quite the impact for me.

Nicely done HDR though as it is a very natural looking shot.

Some bits hint at the HDR nature (namely the tyres and the sky just above the cab), but all-in-all subtly done and a colourful detailed result. Mono needs heavier black imho, but looks to have potential.

Not sure what you mean about the tyres Neil as that's the suns reflection on the rubber, but agree about the sky around the cab, maybe could've rescued that by overlaying one of the shots and painting back in, but it'll do for now Wink

Ta too Rich,
Paul

Could just be a combination of old rubber and sunlight, but to my eyes the white areas at the bottom the treads look a little too bright.

I would concede that I am perhaps taking niggling to a new level though Wink

... they're there on the centre file Neil, obviously it may become fractionally more pronounced on the file after TM and contrast adjustments, but it is fairly minor ... honest, I'll show you next week Wink
