As promised here’s a shot from the Rockwood Autoyard of an actual vehicle in all its grungy goodness. This was 3 bracketed exposures merged in Photomatix. I used Topaz DeNoise to clean up a bit of noise as a results of the HDR.
Have a great weekend everyone.

It’s been a whirlwind weekend but I’m not complaining. On Saturday Denise Ippolito arrived in Toronto, as scheduled, to conduct 4 workshops and a seminar for my camera club. I had the absolute pleasure of having dinner with Denise on Saturday and attending Nuit Blanche in downtown Toronto. Not only is Denise an incredibly talented photographer and teacher but she is an awesome person.
The forecast was calling for rain and thunder showers all weekend and both workshops on Sunday were outdoors. Needless to say I was checking the forecast multiple times a day leading up to the weekend. The forecast didn’t change but boy did we get lucky. On Sunday morning we drove out to Rockwood Auto Yard. When we arrived there was a light drizzle and a foggy mist which hung in the air providing beautiful light and a mysterious mood. The rain held out and the 3 hours flew by.
I have a lot of images to go through but here’s one of the first I processed last night. After some minor adjustments in Photoshop I used Topaz Clarity to give it a bit of detail and increased the luminosity in the reds and oranges. don’t forget you can get 15% off on Topaz products using the discount code ELPHOTO.
