Default Old farm truck in the pasture

Taken last weekend near Lancaster, California. We were there to view the poppies in bloom on the hillsides in that high desert community. Came across a farm along the way with this 1930's era International truck. A 3-shot HDR, hand-held.

Very cool shot! I've never looked that closely at the farms along the way - it's obvious I should look much closer.

Default Walter C!

This is a hell'uffa shot! Just perfect for a HDR-rendering. Even without HDR it would be a great motive. One of these unforgettable ones you see on posters, maybe from the old times....

And I must say, Simon's edit gave it some extra 'kick' and 'pop' - truly magnificent, if you don't dislike overcooked. But this motive and the excellent framing really can take it, IMO!

Well done to the both of you!
:^)

Walter, this is one beautiful shot - and a very nice HDR treatment, just the way I like it

i really like this shot. the texture of the old truck stands in nice contrast to the field of poppies. your hdr brought out the details not only of the truck nicely, but also brought out the details in the grass and made the poppies orange pop.
