Great processing, and again, a superb hdr subject....can't remember, have I told you about hdrspotting.com? You should definitely be posting out there!!!!

Beautiful blues that you have captured here, including a nice blue sky, which is sometimes hard in HDR. At least for me. :-)

Blue is my favourite colour, and this shot is gorgeous to see. Super processing.

This series is like a comic. Extra ordinary trucks, vivid colours and PoV puts an effect on the action, if you know what I mean.
