Out to Pasture Wrap

Here is the finished image complete with an image wrap...thought it was possible to do so I figured it out...

 

I took my time on this "special project" to evaluate every detail. Near objects were sharpened more while far away elements were blured. I also took into account the light source trasitioning from bright to dark through the frame. Color was also evaluated.

 

I used Photoshop as well as Topaz Adjust about 3 times...once for denoiseing alonge and the other two for details as well as denoiseing. Of course I used my buddy LAB Color Space in Photoshop for additional tweaks.

 

My favorite part is the orange color on the hood. I paid attention not to blow out the color and bring out the dents and details.

 

With the image wrap part I selected the area and then used the transform/distort tool to angle the edges. Once done both edges I had to tiddy up the corner overlap by cloning out the overlap and making a new seam from the corner...it was not pretty up close with hard edged pixels so I ran the blur tool along the edges.

 

Glad its done!
