Today, while out and about with my camera, I saw this cool looking old DeSoto Fluid Drive in a “not quite junk” car lot. Nice grill, great color, but probably not as “fluid” as it used to be.
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L at 47mm. 1/200 at f/8, ISO 100.

OK, so I’m on a faux HDR kick. No doubt it won’t be long before I’ll dial back it back, but for now I’m having fun tweaking with abandon. Interestingly, not all images lend themselves to this kind of heavy processing–especially when going for a “painterly” look. This one, taken this past weekend while out for Mexican food, took the process quite nicely.
For fun here’s the original JPEG image as captured in camera (the image above was made from the RAW file with most of the processing done in Lightroom 4):

On my way to catch a flight, I grabbed this shot while heading toward the boarding gate.

I was out and about this past weekend gigging with the band at the “Thinking Outside the Squeezebox II Festival” in St Paul, Minnesota. Between sets, I had a lot of time to take photos. Here are a few talent shots that worked well with faux HDR processing in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Most of us have our own personal style–how we present ourselves in public. This guy has his “casual” style knocked.
