Here is my artistic version... HDR and tone mapped. Have I gone to far? Honest opinions needed.

EDIT: I see I forgot to mention its a single image hdr. The owner is a friend of mine, I had some free time and was playing with the image... I really liked how it turned out so I had to post. It was taken a couple years ago with an Olympus 5mp point and shoot.

Here's a single image HDR of his bus that he gives rides in.

I likes it - i think there is loads of potentional too, i'd tweek the curves and give it some more contrast and darken the scene just a little, make it real moody.

I love jeeps and love the picture!

First vehicle was a 97 Wrangler TJ on 35s.

I can't stop thinking of the fun the driver had while wheeling it!

Can we see the color version for comparison?

Yes, I was there when he opened the crate, He waited nearly a year for the engine... $10 grand, 800hp and very loud. Mud bogs are pretty big around here. After seeing how this image turned out I'd like to attend another with a better camera. ;) Couple hundred foot long, 6' deep mud trench... he who makes it through the fastest wins. (If they make it at all). They have a large loader (tractor) that pulls them out. The day I attended only one made it through.

I'd never even thought of photographing these until I created this image.

Drivetrain brake on the front! Serious business!

What axles and more details on the Jeep?

I can tell you the steering is hydraulic, I can find out more... he moved to FL. May take a few days.

Thanks Grace, Have him cover it in mud and take a few photo's. ;) I held the camera above my head for that angle. I can play with the photo if you'd like... I dont mind, you can retain all rights... Just havin' fun.

BTW, I found with photos of 'shiney' cars, you can single image hdr on another layer and reduce the transparency of it over the original. It makes the paint look deeper and more reflective without having an hdr look.

540 cubic inches in a Jeep, huh?! NICE!!! (guess you need that to spin those big Boggers, huh?!)

As to the pictures, they're neat to me, I like them. Something different, for sure! You can't go overboard at all when you're expressing your own personal creativity. As long as you like the results, not much else matters!
