About the Image(s)

This is another one from Old Car City back in October during happier times. This is a 4 shot HDR processed in Aurora and brought into Photoshop for basic and creative edits. Did some cropping, filled in some bright areas by cloning or spot healing, removed some stickers and finally added some cats eyes I found on the internet to the bus driver.

OK! Chucky is in the house! Outside of possibly moving him so it looks like he is actually in the driver's seat I think everything looks very solid. Maybe a touch bright / strong on the greens in the upper left corner but that is a nit.   Posted: 06/08/2020 19:43:27

Chucky is an eye catcher and with "cat eyes". It is a tight image but works and my thought about the background might be to darken some to reduce the brighter green to keep us focused on the bus. I think Rick's idea of making the figure become the driver would creat some real humor in this good image.   Posted: 06/10/2020 17:52:36

I love OCC! This is a great capture and tone mapping and crop.

The cats eyes add to the image

I do like Rick's idea of moving him to the driver's seat
wonder if content aware move would do that ?   Posted: 06/29/2020 13:00:31

Interesting subject. Beautiful composition. Blending is good with lovely color tones. Texture is so good and adds to the atmosphere of the subject.   Posted: 06/30/2020 14:52:48
