Writing with Light

Dodge at the Distillery

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I tell you with the holidays coming up so quickly life has gotten even more hectic than usual.  Today’s shot is another one taken last week at the Christmas Market at the Distillery District. These old dodge automobiles are all over the Distillery District. I had to squeeze myself and my tripod into a tight corner to get this angle so that I could include all the awesome christmas lights.

I actually converted this to a B&W image as well and asked my husband’s opinion on which one he liked more. He picked colour. I’ve upload the B&W version to my Facebook Page. Have a look and let me know what you think.

  1. Gorgeous as always! How did you process it?

    • Thanks Ingrid. This was a single RAW. I processed it in Photoshop. I adjusted the white balance slightly as it came out a bit too yellow for my liking due to the lights. I then used Topaz Adjust and masked in a little bit of detail in the car and on the cobblestones. That was it.

  8. Wonderful capture! Hmm. I like the color image best after viewing the B&W one. For me, I like the color of the car and more detail can been seen.

    Nice one, Edith! A unique composition and great processing on both versions. For once, I do not have an opinion on which is the better.

  21. An awesome shot. I like the way you have processed the photograph. That old Dodge reminds me of Cuba, because those old cars are running all over the place.
