A new rock crushing plant working around Mannum SA – client wanted “something different” to stand out on the wall – HDR gave the desired (???) effect – love or hate “over done” HDR – it is different!

Not generally a fan of the over done HDR – but the client was – sometimes you dont have to be better – just be different!

    Interesting shot there Dave, certainly makes the shot standout, weird piece of equipment though, not something you see often. Nice work mate :-)

    Good use of HDR, the whole series is dynamic, people need to hire you to corporate work more often!

  • Thanks Steve – more work = more toys!
