Wheel Reflection

May 25, 2010  •  Leave a Comment

Sunday evening I took a self-imposed photo-drive around the Georgetown, Texas area to see if I could scare up something nice to post since I have been anxious to get something new.  I started out by going to Lake Georgetown to see if I might get a good sunset shot or two.  On the way, I stopped at a law firm that had an old firetruck and farm equipment in front.  Yeah, I don't get why either, but it made for some nice HDR possibilities.  After that stop, I did make it to the lake and got some shots that I'm still debating on.  Lastly, on the way home, I stopped by a place that looked like a grain elevator with a bunch of dump trucks parked next to it.  I don't think it was a grain elevator though because the trucks had the name of a gravel company on them.  That was my first clue.  I guess it was maybe a gravel elevator?  I dunno, but I grabbed some shots of the trucks.  I kind of liked this one because of the great chrome and the reflection in the wheel of the dump truck next to it.

I took this shot at ISO 200, aperture of f18, focal length of 14mm and I shot 5 brackets in raw format ranging from -2 to +2 at 1 stop EVs.  I used my standard work-flow for this one with the exception of bumping up the bleach bypass filter layer to 25% opacity.  I also added a couple of negative control points on the sky and on the wheel to keep some of the color of the sunset.
