The first version- HDR of a piece of roadworking machinery that I found on this plateau outside of Ignacio, CO.
So, what do you think? I had fun with this image, and with this find. I was on a plateau with an oil rig and nothing else… not supposed to be there but the gate was open and I saw this from the road. I took a bunch of different images, trying to show off the strangeness of finding this heavy equipment in such a beautiful space.
HDR from 3 exposures, Photomatix Pro 4, Photoshop, Topaz DeNoise and Lightroom all used to finish the image.
