I photographed this old truck in Bodie, CA. There were two important steps necessary to create this image. First I had to use a fill-in flash. Second I created three images out of the camera raw file. I overexposed (2 steps), underexposed (2steps) and normal exposed the image and saved the three images to use Photomatix to create a high dynamic range (HDR) image.
Enjoy and happy photographing!
