    Can't tell you were they are taken for security reasons. However if you google digger graveyard will point you in the right direction

    Interesting - in the antipodes a 'digger' is slang for a soldier - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digger_(soldier) - I saw the thread title and half expected a rest home or graveyard.

    Like 67DGS, I like heavy machinery - particularly the rust and yellow high-vis look. I'd be tempted to boost the yellow-y goodness. But thats just personal preference.

    Thanks have done a few HDR photos but not uploaded them anywhere yet. To be truthful pic number one I boosted the yellow and blue in Lightroom. My personal preference is just to try and represent what I shoot. But each to there own. Thank you again

    Nice shots. I like old equipment. Which ones were taken with the Helios? I like the Helios 44's.
