Who’s Driving?!

Teddy goes for a drive.  My Bloomingdale’s bear decided to take a ride in my car.  (Every time I have to tell him not to move my mirrors!!)  🙂  Photo processed in Photoshop Elements with adjusted levels and a high pass filter.

Camera settings: Fujifilm FinePix S700, F/6.3, 1/13 sec., ISO 800, focal length 9.3 mm.  Flash fired.


More Orange

This cars sits a few miles from us and I have been wanting to take a photograph of it for some time.  Today I finally stopped and took a few shots.  I had to shoot through the cyclone fence, but it worked out ok.  The orange color was just so dynamic!  I processed with Topaz Clean and ReMask.  It was also cropped, rotated and dodged and burned.    Added some white lines and script for some contrast and depth.  Hope you like it.

Camera settings: F/6.3, 1/250 sec., ISO 64, focal length 6.3 mm.  No flash.


Saw this old roadster in Cambria, CA.  Though I would love to drive it, too. . . I think it is pretty masculine!   I think of most things as pretty much gender neutral, but this does look like a man’s car.  I cropped the original, adjusted levels and sharpness.  I used a white soft brush on a separate layer to take out distracting cars, street, etc.  I then applied Topaz Simplify watercolor.  Burning brought back the rich color and framework of the windshield.

A big Hummer or pickup might be more masculine, but I figured most men would have liked to have seen this car under the Christmas tree!   Have a great day, everyone!
