Another high-texture image from the same location where Found On Road Dead… Literally was taken.
Backcountry cruises can be a hit-or-miss proposition. You could go an entire day without seeing anything worthy of shooting, and then again, you can find one location that provides numerous possibilities. This particular location is located somewhere between High Point, NC and Hanging Rock State Park (where The Last of the Mohicans was filmed.) I’m not sure who the owners are, but it seemed like an outdoor museum of rusty vehicles and farm equipment, all of which had great texture and patina.
I hope to present a couple more from this location over the next few days.
Nikon D7000, Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 lens, at 17mm, f/6.3, 11 exposures from Promote Control.
This image is an amalgam of output from both Photomatix Pro and HDR Express. Initially, the image was ‘flatter’ and more cluttered with trees, so seeking a way to refine the statement of the picture, I decided to bring attention to the bulbous nose of the car by using Photoshop’s Lens Correction filter. Making a custom adjustment of -25 helped to create a pseudo-fisheye effect, which helped to cut out distracting background as well as to create the sensation of the car bearing down on the viewer.
