Feeling like I really had to redeem myself from last weeks fiasco the theme of “Cars” seemed like a no brainer and just to stack the deck in my favor even more there were three car shows during the week.
That would have been too easy for me (That sentence is dripping with sarcasm by the way) Actually I just didn’t have the time to go to any of them, so Sunday afternoon found me wondering what to do. I decided to drag my wife and daughter along on an exploratory photodrive to the west side of downtown Salt Lake City.
I love it when you find something unexpected and wonderful!
Although I shot 9 brackets of this scene I ended up not tonemapping it at all rather I manually blended together three of the images to get the best sky, Caboose, and tracks.
A few more of the scene:
Before capturing the Caboose we had driven around a bit and found these random cars…
I really enjoyed finding this one!
