Another shot from the local county fair, this time using a combination of techniques. I started with a panned slow shutter shot of the carousel horse as it went by. During processing, I did a straight version but wondered what it would look like with some textures. For some reason I always want to add textures to carousel horse photos. 😉 I started to add numerous textures of various opacities and as I worked the image the color saturation and contrast kept getting higher and deeper. I could have corrected it and kept things subdued and “nostalgic” but I kind of liked the boldness of it and went with it. I called it “Flash”.
that’s a great photo, makes me fee like a child again
Thanks Chloe. I get the same feeling also because I went to the same fair when I was a kid. I swear it all looks the same!
Works for me! and I agree with Chloe, has a wonderful way of reverting me to my childhood.
