i actually prefer the non hdr images, the combined ones work but i still think show a little too much detail whereas the shadows to me are mysterious and add a little something extra to the images that the detailed shots ironically loses

Ronny - I like your blending, adding a bit more detail but not enough to lose the high contrast of the non-HDR versions.

Kjell - it's definitely from an inline 6 engine, the part of the engine that has the holes for the cylinders is also there, still attached to the truck's body. Here's a picture of the cab, does it look like 1960?:

Thanks! I enjoyed the 2 mile hike into the spot where this truck is located, and photographing it. I'd like to go back sometime and get more details and more creative shots - I was concentrating so much on the HDR aspects that I didn't do that great of a job working out all of the possible ways to make it interesting.

i like the darker more contrasty look of the originals, it gives more texture
but i like the detail of the hdr
i would likely use the hdr images and go into curves and just pull down on the darker end and try to retain the detail
