I’ve always promised my girlfriend a romantic weekend in Napa Valley and thanks to the ”Calistoga Winter Wine Passport Weekend” we had our weekend! We bought out passports for $40 and got to taste wine at 16 different wineries (we only made it to 7). Our 2nd stop of the 2nd day was to ”Lava Vine” Winery. The wine was excellent, the olive oil great, and the gal serving us awesome. But to top it all off, they had this AMAZING truck outside.
For a little while I got into the grunge form of HDR photography because I thought it looked artistic. Then I decided I wanted my HDRs to look more realistic and abandoned that form. But so many people post car shots like this that when I saw this awesome truck I couldnt help myself. HDR composed from 5 photos in Photomatix Pro and then cleaned up in Photoshop to remove some of the motion blur.
