As I was walking my dog Jedi the yesterday I saw this box with a broken tinted car window, well I just had to go back today and shoot it. The images here are all HDR shot with a 10X close up filter, the tripod is the Manfrotto 190XBPRO and the 496RC2 ball head. Processing was done with NIK HDR pro and PS5.

Instead of buying a LCD hood for my display I remembered I had some old dividers from my old Tamrac Camera bag. Two dividers some gaffers tape and Velcro did the trick. Now I can spend that $20 on something else, like replacing the +4 close up lens I dropped yesterday and broke (it was only a few days old). Butter fingers strikes again.
