So I went to an event this past weekend. I must say, this kind of gathering was definitely a different environment than some of the "JDM" gathering I've been mostly attending. Not trying to throw our scene under the bus or anything, but I think this was the best car gathering I've been to. The venue was huge and the cars were just amazing. Definitely going back again in 2013, despite the 1.5 hour drive the San Diego :ugh:

Choose any picture above and ill list exactly what I did to it. Each picture went through a different process so I can't really speak for all.

Hmm alright. That picture didn't take much editing.

First I used Lightroom to:

1. Lower the exposure because it was bright out
2. Also lowered the highlights because there were a lot of blown lights
3. Raised shadows to light up the dark areas
4. Raise clarity which makes everything look bolder and pop

Then I used Photoshop CS5 to:

1. Make it pop even more by using Topaz Adjust 5 plugin
2. In Topaz Adjust, I used the HDR effect and tweaked so that it popped even more.
3. I then sharpened the image using unmask sharp.
4. Then I used Nik Dfine to remove noise from the picture because HDR effect and sharpen brings noise to the picture

This is the picture straight from the camera

Looks like I just missed you Danny!
Travis said he saw your girl so I thought I would bump into you. But I actually shot for like 45 minutes then I had to head back to finish up homework.
