Lately I have been shying away from the HDR look. This is a grungy look that many photographers use to add artistic effects to their shots. It really is used to recover shadow and highlight details in images by combining multiple exposures of different ranges in exposure together. Sometimes in can be done in such a way that the image looks very natural. Other times it kind of goes over the edge. This is one of those other times. It works though with big old locomotive and the sky and the colors. Shot with a Nikon D800e on a tripod. 24-70mm lens. Processed in Capture One then the output was HDR’ed in Photomatic.
