  • Notes A completely restored 1949 about one month after restoration. It was driven by the grandfather of the groom from 4 hrs away. Unfortunately about two hours later and about ten miles out on his return trip, was rear ended by a large motor home. The truck was completely destroyed but “grandpa “ came out of it without a scratch. I tried to make this HDR as natural as possible so it is somewhat muted. But it should have zero noise and a lot of effort was put into keeping the light right down to the sun lighting up the grass under areas of the truck and the reflections of the sky on the surface of the truck.

Best viewed on Full Screen Mode to Appreciate. The Paint job on this Classic is Fantastic and so are the Reflections brought out by the Processing. The Sky is Killer as well. HDR at it's BEST. Thanks for sharing Steve.

@digicam Thanks Ed. The thing this truck was missing was a good dose of rust.
