Hey Pick. I haven't heard of Cuban Chrome - I don't currently have Discovery doh! Another show I can't get enough of is American Pickers and those guys like Rat Rods too.

Mr Junk: Yes that motor was sweet ! Don't forget Season 2- Ep 2 is on tonight :-)

lol blue  ,  funny   you  should say that  .  i  watch  those  shows and see  the   creative  process  ,   the hunt  for  parts   / ideas  , and the  reveal  , and  reactions  ,  and  i  relate to it  because  it  is so   similar to  what i / we   do   here . 

 cuban chrome  is another show that  incites  resourcefulness .  amazing stuff on there ,- boat  motors    and house locks  on cars  .  made tools  etc etc  ...

Blind, it's not a HDR photo. I use 3 flashes while shooting and some photoshop for post post process. Mostly basic techs: tones, curves, vibrance, gradient maps... things like that. ... smoke is added while post process. If you like my photos theres lots more at my flickr stream
