Orton or HDR?

Tough to tell which I like more or less than the other. HDR has a way of capturing such a complete tonal range and a few tweaks makes it very surreal. Orton does similar.

The 3 complete cars are done in HDR. The trim detail on the '47 Road Master grill was done with Orton in mind and added in a layer of grain. I give them a final wash with Virtual Photographer to bring about a depth of color found in the old Kodachromes printed on Cibachrome.

Neither are entirely real interpretation and presentations. I tend to real back with HDR and be a bit more literal. I like them both for different reasons. I guess I'll be running parallel paths for a while.
