Trains in HDR

HDR Trains

I was visiting French Lick Indiana and came across some restored trains. They have a great train station setup there a great place for taking photos. I walked around the station, climbed on the trains and look in to these restored train cars. I saw the colors of the train cars along with the contrasting sky. I figured that this would be a nice HDR (High Dynamic Range) photo.

I then combined and processed the photos using Photomatix. In this case I went with a more painterly effect, as I wanted to get that old time classic station feel.

If you are looking to create your own HDR photos here is a really great HDR Tutorial where I first learned how.

Please feel free to leave me your comments or critiques.

  2. This is a really nice HDR. I know what mean about them looking like cartoons sometimes.
