Ford Model T and Model A : Original Nine Exposures

Some viewers have suggested my antique Fords picture was a photo of a painting instead of a scene I shot myself. So, these are the original 9 photographs I shot to record all the different levels of light necessary to make the HDR (high dynamic range) tonemapped image. The cars can be seen at the Essex Steam Train museum in Essex, CT.


I did handheld bracketing using a Nikon D2x and a Nikkor 12-24mm zoom. The Nikon was set to "High Speed Crop" mode. All exposures were at f4 aperture while varying the shutter speed. This screenshot is of Apple's Aperture software, and the entire "digital development" process was done on an Apple Macintosh G5 Quad and Mac OS X Tiger, with help from Photoshop, Photomatix, Nik Color EFEX Pro, and of course, Flickr Uploadr. ;-)


The result:


PS. If you have a comment, and if you don't mind, make the comment on the result so the discussion is together, rather than here. Thanks!
