[78/365] Photoshop Friday : Beemer

Photoshop Friday #11

 

Each Friday, I'm going to take someones image and bugger it up using my bare hands, a beaten up MacBookPro and a very mucky version of photoshop. Ok. It's a kinda 365 cop out, but I'm still creating something new each day (weak... but I'm sticking to it).

 

This weeks image comes from Mr Assignment52 himself, Eric Martin. Eric recently started a 365 project and I am one of the many fans who are really enjoying his ongoing creativity. Especially when he whips out that 150 macro. I'm sure you'll agree that shots like this and that are just a couple of the reasons why he is highly regarded on flickr by his peers.

 

So onto the image. Eric asked what I could with this shot of his friends BMW. I already liked the angle he used. Wasn't too much to do actually. The major difference was to get that front wheel turned around a bit to give it more edge. Here was my complete flow :-

 

1) Noise reduction using Nik Define

2) Removed the street lamps

3) Removed the buildings in the distance

4) Patched up the grass a bit

5) Turned the from drivers side wheel a bit

6) Burned/Dodged the clouds

7) Cross processed the sky and grass

8) Sharpened using a high pass filter

9) Added a border
