Hi Smoke, I have a rail that I use, but I never had good results with the software
I use both focus stacking and composite shots to build small model shots like this one. The truck was lit using a 9 light LED flashlight. I can't remember how many shots it took, maybe 20-30 to build it. I generally first edit in LR for my basic things like WB, contrast, and set the White and Black Point, then stack in PS.

Can almost imagine Wallace and Gromit behind the windscreen..

Thank you,I do these when I get bored and don't want to set up a lot of equipment. This was a table top shot. A piece of cotton batting for the ground, and black poster board background. Lighting was a 9 light LED pen light, I use it like a paint brush to paint in light where I need it on multiple shots, then stack them in PS. I use a black layer mask, and opacity adjustment to reveal what I need.

Good night, hosers. I'm on leave tomorrow; going with one of the Jeep clubs to "escort" and unload the trucks carrying wreaths to the veteran cemeteries for Wreaths Across America.

Looking forward to your comments on it. This was in Birmingham, December-early January. I was going then after reviewing what it was decided not to. The reviews I read from those that attended were not the best.

We unloaded about 500 boxes of wreaths at the Veteran's cemetery, 32 at the American Legion, and ten at a local church, in three counties in Southern Maryland. I think there were ten Jeeps and six County Police vehicles escorting two tractor trailers to the cemetery. Seven Jeeps continued on to escort one truck to the other two locations. It was a lot of work, but well worth it.

MLW and I go back to the cemetery at 9 tomorrow morning to lay the wreath at the grave of Dad and Mom.

Ooo! Can't wait to hear about this one!!

Happy Friday, hosers!
Didn't care for it at all! I loved loved loved the Immersive Van Gogh last year and was really looking forward to this one but it was not very good. The way they kept switching the scenes and then moving the objects in the video all around made it impossible to enjoy and really look at them. It was too much movement and too much about the transitions from one "scene" to the next and not enough about the actual works themselves. Also, I know he did many other works but how can you have an Immersive Monet with only about 30 seconds of water lilies, no haystacks and most of the garden stuff was in abstract! The amount of motion in the transitions and displays started to trigger my motion sickness - it was like being in an imax. Also the music was not a good fit for the scenes and was very loud. My friend kept muttering about Bolero not being very Monet lol. Thankfully I had my ear plugs with me. Too bad really as we were so looking forward to another great experience like we had with Immersive VG.

I should have read those reviews! After we so enjoyed the VG last year I had said Oh I hope they do Monet!!! so when I saw the ads I bought the tickets without a second thought.

Still, I got to hang out with an old friend, found $4 meter parking in Boston on a Friday afternoon, had a nice 2 cosmo dinner after and found some very reasonably priced and very pretty gifts in the Monet exhibit gift shop so it wasn't a total disaster.

And now I'm home and Princess just got home for winter break for a month and we are watching a movie and eating popcorn instead of decorating our tree!
