This picture was shot on a tripod with three exposures (-2..0..+2 EV). I used Photomatix to create the HDR with tone mapping and detail enhanced. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. 1 layer mask for the sky to increase color saturation. 1 layer mask in soft light mode at 50% gray, using brush tool to lighten and darken some areas of the image, to bring out details. Used Nik Sharpener Pro to sharpen image.
While in Central Oregon, we stopped at this tiny little town, Shaniko. Spotted all these old wagons all lined up in this covered shelter. Again, another great subject for my HDR workout!
I have to go car shopping! My old 250,000-mile clunker is on its last leg or shock! The mechanic even advised me not to put anymore money into fixing it! No, I am not buying that wagon above!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
