A piece of old, odd equipment that was sitting outside our old abandoned train station:

I do like that 2nd one with the levers.. For your HDRs Tom, what program do you use? I've tried several, photomatix? comes to mind as one but I have enough on my plate learning LR, PS, printing etc without throwing another program into the mix. I gave up on them as my results were well over cooked and couldn't see how to bring back a natural look to the tone mapping.

I haven't been very successful at HDR myself John. Being the cheapskate that I am, I either use Photoshop's HDR or more often, a free program that Wolf introduced me to called "AutoHDR". I do not recall if that image was a true HDR or a pseudo-HDR from one image. When I do the pseudo stuff, I usually play with Topaz filters to get what I want. Photomatrix or one of the other popular ones is on my very long "someday" list. :)
