Please critique!

Been a while since I've able to post anything here... TONS of work, just moved to a new town, and a two-year-old. Makes it tough to retouch for fun.

Anyway, here's the latest. This truck was at the end of Sugar Hill Road in Eastbrook, ME. I was going for a "better than nature, but not quite HDR" look. I am pleased with the results, but I am sure that there is more that I could do to improve it further, or otherwise, take it down a notch to give it a little less punch. Please let me know and thanks!

Yay! Thumbnails! Too bad they're in reverse order... d'oh!

Hi Cathy,

That's a good point. You would need something to compare it to! The before shot has been added to the first post. Thanks!

Re: Please critique!

The truck is a great find. It would be nice to see it posted here to RTP without the link. Links often get broken. So when we go to find the pictures later, they don't exist. If you post them here, they will always be here.

Let's see more of your work. Enjoy looking at it.

Janet

Re: Please critique!

in photobucket you can select the two images...or checkmark them and then scroll down and click on generate html or img code and then copy the code for the thumbnail one recommended for forums..i have not personally done it on this site but have on other forums...it just pastes a clickable thumbnail that opens to original size....does that make sense?

Thanks Erin, I gave it a try but with no luck. I'm sure I did something wrong somewhere....

Bump for more critiques! :-)

Re: Please critique!

I think you have punched it just right.. like you said almost HDR but not quite

Nice work!
