Some things just look better old. Other things, like food in your fridge and Robert Redford, have a more limited use-by date.
Debbie and I came across this tractor on a beach just out of Kaikorua which is used by local fishermen to pull their boats in and out of the water. We had already got a great shot of the seal colony earlier so this was an added bonus. To get this shot I lay close to the ground right infront of the tractor to accentuate it’s brooding nature. By using a wide angle lens also helped with pulling the front forward and pushing the rear back. Because I was taking the photo directly into the sun I took 5 exposures in the Digital RAW format so I could capture all the light levels. They were combined using Photomatix and Photoshop. I’m going to write a step by step tutorial on how I did this very soon.
Nice use of HDR
