The race you're on

Press L

 

This shot was taken out of the back window of a Tram in Zurich, Switzerland. Didn't expect it to be good. And to be honest, technically it's far from perfect. But nevertheless I kept it, because I had the "vision" of a cinematic car chasing style post processing...

So I changed the ratio to 21:9 and added some dark purple to the shadows and a little bit yellow to the highlights. Then I increased the contrast and shaded the foreground as well as from the top left corner to the bottom. The background was a little bit too distracting, so I decided to blur it out (kind of a fake tilt-shift look).

 

I'm quite happy with the final image. So, just keep the images you're not sure about for a few days instead of deleting them right away. You may be able to get something out of it :)
