Oh Red Corvette, How Hot You Are!

Another little HDR photo from this year’s Corvettes at Roscoe Village. To create a HDR photo, I photographed this red hot number with three exposures (normal exposure, over exposure, and under exposure) so I can merged them to create a basic HDR photo to work with.

Post-processing:
To merged the three exposures, I first imported them into Adobe Lightroom CC and then used the Merge to HDR function. Once the HDR photo was created, I went into the Basic panel and applied a few simple adjustments: Clarity +38 and Vibrance +26. Then I move to the Tone Curve panel and since the Lightroom Merge to HDR tends to make the photo too bright for my tastes, I lowered the Lights slider to -83 (it was very very bright). Next, I headed to my favorite plugin, Color Efex Pro 4 to refine the photo more.

Opening into the plugin Color Efex Pro 4, I used the following filters: Detail Extractor (Fine at 70& opacity), Bi-Color Filters (Violet/Pink 2 at 21% opacity), Color Stylizer (Soft Sepia at 48% opacity), Contrast Color Range (Blue preset and applied only to the car), and Vignette Lens (Off-center preset / Amount -18% / Rectangle shape / Size 75%). Once done, I headed to Adobe Photoshop to make a couple of final touchups. First, I used a Curve adjustment layer to darken it some including the front tire and added a Iris Blur effect. And finally removed the man in the right side of the photo.

Left: The final post-processed HDR photo.
Right: The original HDR merged photo I started with.

I am a big fan of opera houses so when I travel I try to visit and photograph them. This is the opera house in Noto in Southeastern Sicily. Noto along with Syracuse and Ragusa are called the "baroque triangle" because they have so many fine examples of baroque architecture. This dates back to the 17th century when the area suffered a large earthquake and most of the buildings were rebuilt in the then popular baroque style. I was surprised to find such an opulent opera house is this not so large city. I like this view looking directly up at the ceiling.

Red Milkweed Beetle ( Tetraopes tetrophthalmus )
An adult red milkweed beetle tries to hide from the camera on the underside of a milkweed leaf in my yard. These colorful little guys are very observant and very shy, so they can be challenging to photograph up close. Each beetle that I turned my camera on would immediately scurry to the underside of the leaf and stay there, so I eventually had to photograph them there, which I thought worked out okay because the back-lighting did help bring out some of the details in the leaf.

These beetles ares given their name because they are specific to milkweed plants. Researchers think that they derive a measure of protection from predators by incorporating toxins from the plant into their bodies in order to become distasteful to predators. They supposedly developed their red and black coloring because the bright colors serve as a warning sign to predators that the beetles are inedible and poisonous.
