Wonderful this HDR-editing

@Marjolein: Ah, no HDR, just one frame and the final edit was done using the Lucis Arts plug-in, one of my favourites for a huge variety of effects.

some great old machinery on display. I love to visit gatherings like this, even though the closely spaced parking makes compelling shots difficult.
