This was a fun photo to take… we had some excavation done at our house and I went out to try to take some photos of the equipment. I took an HDR image of this backhoe and really enjoyed processing it to make the hard work it does stand out- scratches and such. I also used Nik Silver Efex Pro to get the black and white look I wanted, and some Topaz DeNoise (another program I’m testing) to remove noise from the sky. Noiseware Professional wouldn’t quite do it, I’m afraid. The crew tolerated me good-naturedly. Maybe they will understand it better after seeing this photo!
