Covered Wagon. Relic of the Pioneers. Montana. USA. by 


BEST viewed large to see the details !
I discovered this scene in beautiful Montana, USA, an old wagon left in a field, with a couple of fine horses hanging around. I knew it would be a shot I would ‘do something later’ with in Photoshop, since on its own, photographed in the middle of the day in too strong sunshine, it wasn’t very exciting light ! The scene made me think of those pioneers that travelled across America, in the hope of better things.

I shot on my CANON EOS 40D, with polariser attached to my Tamron 28-300 lens, set at 150mm, iso 200, auto wb, f6.7, 1/350sec, (wanted to blur an uninteresting background) underexposed by half a stop, RAW file processed as a pseudo HDR in Photomatix, then edited in Adobe CS3, in Layers… levels/curves adjustments, LAB colour for saturation/sharpness, added a dark vignette, then a little Orton, still wasn’t happy (!!) so I further added a couple of texture layers, which I adjusted with layer masks/opacities/blends etc.
Made a mono version in Photoshop, then blended that on top of the colour version for an advanced Sepia Tone.
I had a great deal of fun processing it !! The texture is my own, one I took in Namibia, in Kolmanskop mining ghost town !
