The Mercedes Benz of Amsterdam

I loved this old Mercedes Benz as I was walking the streets of Amsterdam and just had to take a few pictures of it. I have another view that contrasts the bike, but this one is something a little different than my normal HDR processing.

I processed the photo as a normal black and white, and then did a single-image HDR out of the color version of the RAW photo and then masked that into the B&W to come up with something a little more interesting to me personally.

I’m calling it an HDR Blend and would like to think up a better name for it, but jet lag has a hold on me and I’m a little bit sleepy *grin*

Anyways, give me some old buildings, cobblestones, bricks, and some nice sports cars and I could be taking pictures all day.
