McQueen and Mater (Fisheye Friday #17)

When the next trip to Disney World is more than a month away and fisheye shots are running low, its always nice to find one that I forgot I had! As a bonus, I even found this one on the perfect week, as Cars 2 hit store shelves on Tuesday! I must admit though, I have not even seen the first Cars movie yet, let alone the second. I do have them both on Blu-ray though, so I suppose it will probably be in the plans for an upcoming weekend.


As for the picture, it is three shots run through exposure fusion, and then taken through my normal Lightroom and Photoshop steps. I admit that I struggled with the lighting, but hopefully it came out alright. I was trying to balance the harsh shadows on Mater with the bright reflection on McQueen without washing him out. Much easier said than done!


Comments, suggestions, critiques, etc. are always appreciated! Thanks for looking!
