If you're ever lucky enough to be invited onto an old junk-yard or anywhere where there is a heap of old and rusty machinery, you will know that there are a lot of opportunities for amazing photography. These photographs of machinery show what is possible with a great subject and a little immagination.

Quite a few of those photos look to have been done with HDR. Some “gently” some not so gently. This time, even the garish ones look good — painterly.

Thanks for bringing back memories and the great photography. Some of HDR was a little past my taste but interesting, maybe I’ll developed new taste buds who knows.
