photoblog image Jamie's Farm #5

Jamie's Farm #5

One of my Camera Club members runs a farm and in June some of us members spent an evening there with our cameras.

To finish off this set an outrageous twiddle of one of the farm tractors parked up behind one of the barns.

This is a single RAW file firstly processed in Dynamic Photo HDR.  The resultant JPEG was then taken into CS3 and given some further adjustments in Topaz and a touch of Levels.

You'll either love it or hate it, if it's the latter, I don't care, I had lots of fun doing it :))   Have a nice weekend and get ready for more unusual offerings next week!

Perked up the old workhorse, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
I like it, quite realistic I think.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Nigel. The light had fallen off by this time so I hoped this would brighten it up.
Well I certainly do like it, Brian. You have given this old workhorse a real lift. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Rosalyn.

A fine image sir! These old tractors can last for decades
Brian Walbey: I think this one was getting towards its expiry time Chris.

Twiddle away maestro smile
Brian Walbey: Does that mean I have been promoted Tony, grin thanks for your comment.
Very enjoyable Brian. I like the light in the sky just above the tractor.
Brian Walbey: THanks Chad. That light was the reason for the twiddle, the camera didn't pick up the falling sunset very well.
Its a good twiddle, the tractor looks great and fantastic sky smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Linda.

Brian Walbey: I hadn't noticed the horizon Alan, now I can't stop looking at it, thanks grin

I love HDR, Brian, so you know what group I'm in. Nothing quite like a good tractor "outstanding in its field." smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie. I think this is the area of the farm called the tractor graveyard.
It's deadly...well done
Brian Walbey: Thanks David.
I'm a massive HDR fan as you know Brian so I'm without doubt in the LOVE it section. The composition is spot on, the colours are superb and the HDR is not overcooked. A likey for mesmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Dave.
Don;t love it or hate it. It's something different and interesting to look at.
Brian Walbey: That's called fence sitting Rob grin Thanks for the comment.
I think you have done a great job on this one Brian !
Regards Jim
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jim.
Très jolies couleurs!
