A 365 Day Project

Day 51/365: Old Rusty Engine

So, around the side of the Union Shed I found this – an old rusty diesel engine. Rusty stuff like this is so well suited to HDR. I am still learning the techniques, but they enable you to bring out all the texture and colour detail, so the photo looks more like what the eye can see. Some people don’t like HDR, especially when things are way overdone and become more like a painted artwork, but I think when it’s done well it’s amazing and can produce some fantastic images. Just click for a larger view and let me know what you think!
