Custom Chevy Pickup

Custom 1972 Chevrolet Pickup

I was shooting mostly five frame brackets at the Didsbury Show And Shine on our photowalk there. This one was no exception. After running the 5 images through Photomatix, I found the image to be quite unbalanced. The front part of the pickup was cool and even until you got past the driver’s door. where the light reflecting from the brick buildings was leaving a red color cast on the rear pickup box. I applied some cooling to the back of the pickup and some warming to the front of the truck. I also desaturated some of the crowd to make them to look more natural. The shadows were quite deep on a single frame, so I tried to keep a distinct shadow in the blended image.

In the best light…
