It looks a little bit like the wolfsburg badge from VW

I believe those are clips that the previous owner mounted to hold deer warning sirens.

For the record, the images are HDR and not photoshopped.

High Dynamic Range.

In short, a way or overcoming the limitations of the technology. Expanding dynamic range by using multiple exposures to capture extreme highlights and extreme shadow detail into one image. Done by post processing and merging multiple images.

high dynamic range imaging. I use hdr software called photomatix. It combines 3 (or more) bracketed exposures to get greater detail from highlights and lowlights.

More info than you probably want is available here: http://stuckincustoms.com/2006/06/06/548/

I see. I suppose I should have said "nice post processing"

Well done, anyway. They look positively surreal. And yet portions of it look completely real.

I shy away from most after-effects and tend to be more of a "Lomo rules" shooter, but its mostly just laziness, and the "live theatre" effect I like.

Now that I think about it, HDR sounds exactly like a technique used in astronomical photography.. taking several short exposure shots and combining them afterwards- its supposed to give detail without overexposing, or something like that. I have the equipment, I just have been too lazy to go about it since it takes a couple hours to get a single shot.

HDR can be used to creat surreal images as well as subtle one where you would not really know that anything was "different". I believe it is a good technique to compensate for digital medium's inherent limitations (i.e. I miss kodachrome ). A little goes along way. Even just 3 quick exposures can assure that the highlights don't get blown out and the shadows don't clog up.

I think Achiii's images- very beautiful - are on the surreal end of the spectrum. Not good or bad, just different alternatives to artistic expression

Sorry about the thread drift.

I think that its also just like the "post-processing" i would do for the same shots in film, i.e. burning and dodging the dark and light areas, though I do usually use the effect in a too dramatic and "surreal" way.
