Daddy’s Truck | 1968 Ford F100

I captured this photo of my dad’s Ford F100 in his shop back in 2011. It is a 3-exposure (auto bracketed) HDR.

My original processing of this photo was pretty cool…until I went to get it printed and took a closer look.  Let me put it this way: my HDR processing skills have grown by leaps and bounds these past couple of years! My original was gritty, noisy, and downright over-processed.

The photo above was reprocessed a couple of months ago in preparation for printing it on aluminum for my dad as a Father’s Day gift. I spent a lot of time perfecting it this time around. Initial adjustments in Lightroom, tone-mapping in Photomatix Pro, and lots of Photoshop layers along with Nik Color Efex Pro, Topaz Clean, and Topaz Detail to get it just right!

It was worth every second of effort when I got the call from my dad when his gift arrived. 🙂
