this was done with a bracket of 5 images, combined in photomatix, then tone mapped. in photoshop created a new high pass layer blended with hardlight. some dodging and burning and basic brightness and contrast corrections. made new layer-channel mixer(monochrome) and messed with that, then bring down the opacity of that layer to bring back some subtle color. strong usm

Great post-processing here--especially within Advanced rules. I've seen how this is done on other web sites, but could you edit your comments for this image and post your specific steps?

nice job doing the cartoony effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like it. It's definitely different, but very artistic. I'm afraid it may be voted down, but I like the creativity of it.

Very cool! You've taken an ordinary shot and made it really amazing - Nicely done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Given the subject and setting, the posterized look probably is a good idea. But I'd prefer the truck isolated against a nicer background like the sky, with a more natural tone mapping.

I dont know, for my taste it´s a bit overdone, okey, it is personal taste, but just not mine.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2006 02:41:58 PM
The HDR really give this a much more of a graphic art feel. I do love how it really brings out a lot of the minor details of the photo and without making the photo to busy. Very nice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/16/2006 07:12:30 AM
I hope you explain how this this done. I finally learned that the technique is HDR, now I realise there are a lot of settings to play with as well. Best of the group I say.

This is just perfect in everyway...

It may not be the most photogenic of shots, however the post precessing and HDR looks fantastic. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This one musn't have started off as a terribly thrilling photo. The work you've done here has made it quite interesting. Some may say a bit overworked for the challenge but nice work none-the-less.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 04:33:29 PM
To me this has a cartoony feel to it. It is very surrealistic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 03:20:07 PM
Very nice shot. The chevy looks "cartoonish" and the whole pic just works.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 12:11:47 PM
One of my two favs for the challenge. You achieved quite an impressive effect on the reflections, and the scenery somehow adds to the 'dirty' car and 'dirty' post processing. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This photo is to over processed to do well here but I really love the way it looks what technique did you use to get this? I would really like to know if you have the time to PM me Thanks.

now I'd really like to see a tutorial on the PP steps taken to achieve this...

Great style.. 8

This type of processing is often hit-or-miss with me - I find that sometimes it can detract from certain types of subjects and often is not done well. But here, you chose a perfect subject for the processing.

I really admire this shot. In addition to the processing, I love the colors and the detail in the feflection and dust on the truck.

Overdone by a large margin IMO. Looks more like a paintbrush painting than a photograph...

11/13/2006 10:43:41 AM
i wonder how you made it so extreme i couldnt get mine to do that. can you tell me if you used cs2 or photomatrix? 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 10:24:53 AM
How cool! I love this effect! My only tiny nit-pick is that it seems a little tilted -- but it looks so cool anyway that it's just a little distraction.
