Red Truck Grunge

Happy Monday Everyone. I hope that those that got hit by all the snowstorms this weekend have managed to shovel themselves out. We got about 10cm on Saturday and we finally got the driveway cleared yesterday.

I was processing some more images from my Rockwood Autoyard shoot (boy am I behind in processing) and I came across this image of a dilapidated red pick-up truck. When I first saw it I knew it was the perfect candidate for some HDR work. This was a 3 exposures processed in Photomatix and then in Photoshop and Topaz Clarity to give it an additional subtle pop.

The Lonely Path

This is another lovely little pathway I stumbled upon when I was exploring the Rockwood Auto yard.  I posted the first one last week, which was shrouded in fog (you can see it here). The fog was a bit less dense in this area but the colour of the leaves on the one tree in this section just drew me in. I used a texture overlay to give the final image more richness.

Enchanted

While at the workshop at the Rockwood Autoyard this past weekend, I broke off from the group to go do a little exploring on my own and I came upon this scene. Remember in my last post I said that there was a foggy mist that enveloped the area? See what I mean.

After some minor adjustments in Photoshop I ran the image through Topaz Clarity to give it a bit more definition and then Perfect B&W to desaturate and give it a bit of a mysterious feel.

Forest Mist

I’d like to thank everyone for the responses to Monday’s post, asking for your opinion on either the colour or black & white version of “Swirls.”  So what did everyone think?

66% liked the colour version

22% liked the B&W version

9% liked both.

It looks like the color version was a favorite. Thank you again for taking the time to visit and providing your feedback.

On to today’s images. The start of our Tobermory weekend was, how shall I put it…soggy. We had to delay our start on the first morning because of the pouring rain. When we did finally head out, close to an hour behind schedule, the rain had subsided. It actually subsided up until we parked the cars and were ready to start hiking. That’s when the sky opened up again. Our workshop leader and photographer, Ethan Meleg, quickly put plan B into action…we would hike to a wooded area where we could at least get some shelter from the rain. This provided another photographic opportunity.

There was this wonderful mist in the air and the the rain and dampness made the colors of the forest pop.
