Reo's in a field

REO Speedwagons seem to have been a popular truck back in the day because we have quite a few of them sitting in farmer fields.

 

I intended for this to be an HDR image but after seeing how much the grass was blowing in the wind I thought I would just process the one Tif image. This shot was taken 2 years ago though I never thought about processing it until now with our snowy weather still annoying everyone in Southern Alberta (Canada).

 

The original file was a 8-bit Tiff which is a weird combination since I would now make them 16-bit.

 

For editing I used 3 different settings of levels to bring out details in the dark and white areas...in an attempt to start off with an image that had more dynamic range....like HDR does. With more adjustments in Topaz Adjust with color adjustments in LAB Mode as well as creating a slight sunburst effect I think it looks like an HDR image.
