Ruby’s Red Vette

Nikon D7000 18-135mm @ 24mm ISO 800 3-bkts f/16 Lr3, HEP1; PsCS5

I’m going with an automotive theme this week, and starting with this image captured at an all Corvette show held in Redondo Beach, California this past June.  The show was hosted by the Vette Set car club which is active in the L.A. area.  This was one of 90 Corvettes on display that day, and situated as it was in front of Ruby’s diner with the matching color scheme, the scene begged me to capture it.

I applied the usual processing to achieve an HDR image then created an adjustment layer in Photoshop for de-saturation and then selectively painted out the masking to reveal the original saturation.
