[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Took in another Show & Shine this weekend,this is one of the largest & most supported by classic car owners in our area. This is the rear view of the Packard,a car with great lines.The owner said,on doing 80 MPH,it felt no different than from sitting in his favourite armchair,it is that smooth a ride:-) Wanted to try an HDR from a single image,yes I know it's not a real HDR but that's what the software is sold as.HDR effect given by applying NIK collection HDR Efex Pro 2,to a single image.

A nice HDR Ron giving overall pleasing light and colour. I was in two minds about the open door and the people viewing; however I think it adds interest...

All good and sharp!

I do like the different layers of tones from the grass through the sheen of paintwork to the greys of the sky...they all gel so well.
I also like the effect of the HDR on this single, the tone mapping has created something interesting and appealing for sure, very welldone.


Hello Ronald,the HDR effect comes across loud and clear, and from just one image!
A clear, colourful picture with good light and lovely textures.
I like the inclusion of the two people, adding interest as David suggests.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Ron,
A lovely presentation of this Packard from the rear!
Very good spray painting where there's a marvelous reflection of the surroundings.
I like the vertical frame adapted.
Well done,

Francis xavier

Nice HDR work Ron, it seems to work well with classic cars. The folks viewing the car add meaning to the shot, especially with the prominent placard on the rear.

Hello Ronald
This Packard really shines...like the oval window..
Stunning painting...also like the shape of the rear bumper...


I agree, the lines of those old cars are beautiful and smooth. Looks like this old Packard is in great condition. Nicely captured with good details. Well done, tfs.
