The Real Power Wagon


The Real Power Wagon

I’m sure this is one of my wife’s favorite vehicles from the Didsbury Show and Shine. She really likes the old trucks and this one is a beauty. I took a different approach to this image. I did a single frame HDR in Photomatix and did the conversion there. I brought it back into Nikon Capture NX2 and did a Darken/Lighten Center from Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0, and added a couple of Color Control Points to selectively brighten and increase contrast. Then I exported a .jpg file and opened the image in Nik Snapseed. Then added a frame, which I thought added a rustic quality to the picture, which went well with the old stake bed truck.

In the best light…
