Images & Observations



Nikon D80 18-135mm @ 135mm ISO 160 3-bkts f/11 Lr3, HDR Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro2; PsCs5

In the car culture of Southern California some car owners will go to any length to keep their pride and joy from acquiring any scratches or dings.

The f/11 setting helped keep the car and the signs in focus, I then added a layer in Photoshop with a Gaussian blur, then masked out the car and the signs to create a bokeh effect after the fact.  Silver Efex Pro 2 was used to convert to black and white, and then to selectively reveal the color in the signs.

    Is this a photo of the pilot program for the “mentally handicapped” spots I’ve heard that the State of California might be bringing out?
