Hi Barbara, fantastic colours and compositon. I personally don't like the typical HDR pictures as they feel so unreal, but yours is perfectly natural. Very nice !

@ClaudiaBCN: Thanks, Claudia. I use HDR a lot and usually prefer a more 'natural' look, but when it's old trucks, gas stations, old buildings, etc. I tend to give it a bit more illustrative look. That's what's nice about the software today - you can edit to your preferences!

Tomas Turecek from Czech Republic

As I'm much more interested in nature photography I found HDR images and especially HDR images of old vehicles rotting in a foliage very appealing :) You made a good work here. I like the colours of the truck.

@Tomas Turecek: Yes, I like nature more too. There's fewer opportunities where I live so I branch out and do architecture and 'old stuff' when I can. Thanks for the nice comment and for stopping by!
