More Graffiti Fun...

Just for fun, I took a few photos of this car that was reflecting all the urban art surrounding it. The image was a three shot HDR and was processed through Photomatix. To add a little more drama, I used two filter's from Topaz Labs Adjust to enhance the texture, color and shine of the car,  namely Spicify and Portrait Smooth. The resultant image has a lot more depth and color, and interest. Photomatix and Topaz Adjust are a complementary combination of filters. It's good to vary the effects and opacities to come away with your own creative interpretation of the scene.

Interested in HDR? I'll be giving answering your questions at the Orlando Camera Club on August 23, and also doing a presentation/workshop with Naturescapes in early December, along with infrared and creative photography at the stunning location of Bosque del Apache, NM. In the meantime, please join me online with one of my courses - we'll have a lot of fun, and we'll work with many creative ideas during this month. Hope to see you there!
