Three shot brackets, tonemapped in PM, further PP in Lightroom. I haven't tonemapped an image in over a year, preferring the more natural exposure blending methods, but at the salvage yard, I was teased by all the rust and decay and decided to go with some more creative tone mapping.

As long as the person taking the shot likes them there is a purpose to them, even if no one else sees it.

I think they are all great, but like #1 and #5 the best.

#1 for sure. I think the processing works well with these.

Thanks 007. I'm not sure how to answer your question though; the point is to spend a couple hours on a Saturday morning photographing what I find to be some cool looking stuff that's been sitting in a field for the last 40 years. ;)

I like the processing on these. Did you mask in the sky from one of the bracketed images?

Rusty vehicles lend themselves very well to the tonemapping process.

No masking of the sky Doc, however I did do some selective editing of the sky in #5 and to a lesser degree, #2. For both of those, I applied a graduated filter in LR3 and used it to tweak exposure and clarity. I shot #1 with a CPL which helped the sky a bit.

Here are thumbnails of the original three exposures for #1:

I am amazed to see a post like this in a photography forum. Whats the point of taking any photo?

Everything's working in no. 1. A bright and cheery take on the old and rusty.

Okay, the point. Where to start?
1. Fun taking photos
2. OP thinking about exposure, composition, honing skills
3. Beats sitting at home watching tv
4. illustrating what decades sitting in a field will do to a once shiny and sweet running vehicle
5. capturing the texture and colours of the rust and worn out machinery, and the way the vehicles contrast against the natural surroundings
6. Invites the viewer to imagine the life the wrecks once had
7. car guys (and gals) get into NOS (neat old sh*t)

... and I can't believe I've wasted five minutes of my life responding to such a 'pointless' response. I'm thinking that 007 shouldn't be frequenting a photography forum.
