2011 Woodward Dream Cruise - Before the Crowds - Pontiac - PhotoPaint - PSP Pro X3

Downtown Pontiac

Number 2

Truck Lights - Grill

I took my Canon Rebel XTi to Pontiac, Michigan on Friday to get some Pre-Woodward Dream Cruise photographs of the town and vehicles already for the weekend. I was able to get over 100 photographs of various cars and trucks, custom and stock. Today I browsed my new folder in Picasa 3 and selected some photographs to enhance and show.

Opening with PhotoPaint I went for the High Contrast images I like so much (they remind me of good HDR photographs.) I applied the Local Equalization and the Tone Curve for contrast and depth. I used Filter Forge's Photo Effects Vibrancy on the street scene and the Truck Lights.

I saved the large files and opened with PSP Pro X3 and added a hatch-like texture, and framed each photograph with the same frame type for consistency.

I have more yet to share as I pick and chose from my selections, I have ample work to display for the next few blog entries.
