Went to a cruise night down in my hometown this week and had the opportunity to shoot some cars. The weather co-operated with some nice cloud cover and I was happy with some of the results.



Image

f/8
15 mm
ISO 100
4 exposures


Image

f/4.5
12 mm
ISO 100
3 exposures

And, my favorite from the night and one HDR that I'm quite happy with....

Cobra


Image

f/11
10 mm
ISO 100
6 exposures


It's a ton of a fun and they make great HDR subjects. I will definately be going back and taking a bunch more shots in the future. :D

I love them. I think cars make great subjects for the more "funky/neonish" HDR look.

May I ask what program(s) you used to edit your shots, and if possible, the editing you did?

Best,
-Sean.

Yup, HDR merge in photomatix, then depending on the image, I bring it into GIMP and use different exposures of the source RAW files as layer masks to repair elements in the photos like ghosting, or chromatic aberration.

I plan on writing up a more detailed workflow for how they are created someday for anyone that's interested.

why don't you merge the raw files directly? they contain more dynamic range than a jpeg file!

Cheers,

I do merge the RAW files directly in photomatix and then create the HDR and save it as 16 bit TIFF. Then bring it into GIMP with an unprocessed RAW for more fine tuning, save it as a TIFF again, then compress as a JPEG for online posting.


Here's a car I shot last night. Only one I've gotten to process thus far, there will be a few more from the night I'll post this weekend.

That is awesome! Did you do any more post processing on it other than HDR?

Haha, whoa, I didn't realise there was a demand for it. This week I'll get cracking on making a tutorial.

Here's my newest HDR car shot, and I love this one. One of my favorites so far.
