(Nikon D700, 28-300mm at 200mm, ISO 200, HDR 7 Exposures @ f/5.6)
This is another in a series of HDR images that I shot at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan. Once again the location was the Armington & Sims machine shop. I love the look of the old, oiled, metal of the vintage machinery. I think this type of material really works well with HDR. My goal was to really focus in on one element of the machine, in this case a crank handle, possibly used to operate a vise-like component, but I’m not sure. In comparison with one of the ‘as-shot’ images, I think this shot really brings out the details.
Processing once again started with 7 exposures taken in to Photomatix 4 (beta). Additional contrast was added using Topaz Adjust in Photoshop.
