Week 36 GPlus Project 52

Week 36 Metal
A hunk of metal
For week 36 our theme was metal, so I happened across this hunk of metal. This was a perfect candidate for some HDR as the lighting inside the warehouse was horrible. I really wish I had brought a tripod because with the lighting as bad as it was I was having a hard time keeping the camera still enough for the brighter exposures. After HDRing I put it through Topaz Labs Adjust which did a great job of bringing a feel to the photo, but I wanted something more. With so many plug-ins it's sometimes hard to remember them all, but I remembered Topaz Labs Detail which really brought out texture in the locomotive. It really finished the photo off for me, and is a tool I need to remember more often.
