Daytona, Florida – Daytona 500 – 2010

Daytona 500 was great…just getting through my bunches of pics.  My best shots were right next to the starting lineup snapping away at the cars awaiting their drivers.  Next year will be fun..hopefully Danica Patrick  might be racing???  Good for her…she deserves her chance!   As for this shot…I took a single raw and converted it to and HDR.  These was so much action going on in the photo, I thought why not selective color the cars only???   I enjoy applying that effect.  Add a little nice touch to the shot!  Hope all the race fans enjoy the season!  Good luck Dale Jr!

  1. Very nice effects. Looks like a promotional poster with the texture and selective coloring.

    Found you on flickr yesterday and have added you to my blogroll. Learning HDR a little at a time and find your photos inspiring.

    I love it. The selective color sure adds a punch 🙂
