(Nikon D700, 70-300mm at 70mm, ISO 200, 5 exposures @ f/8.0

As I was driving to Defiance, Ohio, I saw a sign for ‘Independence Dam’. I thought that might be interesting so I took a short trip on a side road which ran along the Maumee (I think) river. I didn’t make it to the dam because it was in a state park and I didn’t want to pay an admission fee. However, along the way I noticed this junk/repair yard which had this bus sitting out front. I just had to stop and take some pictures.

This image started out from 5 hand held exposures processed initially in Photomatix (seen below). After Photomatix, I used PhotoTools to do some additional processing to come up with the finished image seen above.

I also played around with various black and white versions. My favorite is this toned image that was created from the HDR image, using Silver Efex Pro 2.

I like them both. Feel free to leave your opinion or any other comments below.
