Old Chevy farm truck ~ HDR

I went back to photograph the 1950? Chevy farm truck on Sunday, equipped with a wide angle lens this time. This is another attempt at HDR photography. I am still learning and having fun with it! I took many pictures from different angles. I often shoot  the same subject vertically and horizontally because the final images can convey a totally different feeling and emotion. I think I like the vertical shot best because of the dramatic sky. What is your favorite?

  1. Initially I thought I liked the dramatic sky in the first shot better, but the more I looked at the two photos, the more I dug looking at the wide expanse of the Chevy. You still get a great feeling of the imposing weather.


  2. I like the top picture better. (vertical; more sky) I think the rocks in the bottom photo are a distraction. The extra sky in the top photo add more drama and emotion to the overall feeling of the “story”.


  3. I am not a fan of HDR, but I believe that is not the point here. I like the angle on both, the bottom one feels a bit more balanced to me. I usually like working with negative space, but in this case, where it’s all about the subject itself, it looks more dramatic if it fills more of the frame.


  4. Maybe its just me, but I get a tremendous feeling of sadness from these photos. Wow, I mean the way the truck is listing to one side, and laying on that mound. It’s crying out to be towed in to a barn and restored !
