Recently I've been a little under the weather so I haven't had a chance to take any new shots. So, I thought I'd go through the archives and see what photos I haven't blogged. This is one of those. I took this shot one day while wandering around in Taylor, Texas. The red pickup truck caught my eye as it just kind of stood out from the rest of the vehicles in that lot. And with the gloomy sky, it just made for a cool capture. I re-posted this on flickr as well because I had previously cropped it to a weird size and the reason I did that escapes me now.
This one I processed a little differently than most of my others. I did the 5 brackets from -2 to +2, but I merged and tonemapped it in Photomatix. I then tweaked it in Photoshop just using the bleach bypass filter at about 45% opacity. I cleaned it up with Noiseware on the weak noise setting and sharpened it with Nik Sharpener.
