HDR Illustrative Look

I have had a little time to play with some of my recent images from Washington state. Specifically a little HDR processing. As I have noted before I use Photomatrix for processing my HDR images. One of the things you can do is use it with most of the sliders max'd out is to create a more illustrative look. This it turns out can be done with images shot for HDR (multiple exposures at different EVs) or with simple single exposure images. I have put one of each here in the blog. This first is of the Mt. Rainer train steam engine. This is a single exposure image that has been passed through Photomatrix's tone mapping multiple times. The second is an HDR shot of an old Chevy truck it was also processed multiple times. Fun look.
