I was out for a day of wine tasting in Sonoma, CA when this tractor called out to me as we pulled in to one of the wineries. There were lots of things to shoot at this spot, but there was something about this tractor that spoke to me.

This is a 3 exposure HDR shot hand-held.

You can read more about this shot by visiting my photo blog @ http://anvilimage.com …ure-listen-to-your-heart/ (external link) .

Nice shot, showing where the subject worked most of its life. We have an antique tractor show this coming weekend, I intend to fill several cards .

Very nice indeed. I like the processing and the woobly wheels (probably like you after the wine tasting).

Very cool. Love the detail and contrast. Good job with 3-shot handheld; my hands aren't that steady anymore :(

Beautiful shot. HDR, when used responsibly ;), can be very effective.

Nice shot great colors. You must have a pretty steady hand. What HDR program do you use?

It's funny I've never used a tripod for HDR shots myself. Photomatix will correct any movement.

There was an article in the newspaper the other day about a recent up rise in fights happening at local wineries. People can't hold their wine :lol:

Great picture, love the greens.

My first thought was "now that's a good looking shot"...still is.

@Joe Ravenstein: I haven't published a whole lot of pics, but I love tractors, trucks, and any heavy equipment! Have fun at the tractor show!

@TheLaird: Sounds like you know me! I admit, I'm a light weight when it comes to wine... :)

@LV Moose: Joe McNally helped me out a lot with this video: http://www.youtube.com​/watch?v=EDsx3-FWfwk (external link)
Otherwise, find a tree, a mailbox or even another person to stabilize your shot.

@Donnie Payne: Socalrailfan is correct that Photomatix will correct for a lot of the minor movement. I've found that as long as the plane of the sensor only seems to move vertically or horizontally, you don't have much problem. But, if you have a registration shift ( sensor moving diagonally corner to corner ), that's where issues start to creep up with alignment and stretched images.

Thanks for all of your comments!
