Raw Challenge #8 – Lorenzo Pit Lane
#5 is from RC veteran Andreas-Weinand, who adds:
First of all I did a “normal” raw-exposure / -edit in LR. I brought back the sky (pencil mask), lit up the box interior, straightened the pic so that the box wall was straight.
In my resulting “base-image” I cutted out the mechanic / team-guy on the right side.
Then I imported the pic to Photoshop and added a lighting effect (the “sun” on top of Jorge) and a bit of lensflares to get more drama into the picture.
After that, I reedited the picture in LR, added much more clarity and did my final crop. The wall inside the box disturbed me, so I decided to nearly crop it to 1:1. Not exactly 1:1, but close – I just wanted the face of the camera-man kept in the final-image (because I could not get rid of the camera itself) and because I think his view and the view of the technician behind Jorge tell a story, imho, about Jorges back tire.
