did u use HDR? man its so well exposed and bright, love it. looks like a nice road to live on, where the hell is dartmouth?
DrAW!: not hdr, but the underlying principle is the same, improving dynamic range in the shot

Wayy too much saturation friend. Tone the cars and buildings down a bit.
DrAW!: thanks bro
did that on purpose tho, wasn't going for the 'realistic' look (which imho is sometimes highly overrated) this time.
same goes for the previous image

I am interested to know what processing you have used. ?HDR

Detail is fantastic
DrAW!: the main work was done in camera raw,
though not an hdr, the principle is still to restore as much detail in the highlights and shadows
I like the image.You don't see people on the street but you sure see alot of cars smile
DrAW!: thanks Delia,
hmm now that you mention it, this can resemble a ghost town sometimes tongue
Nice bit of twiddling Docsmile
DrAW!: thanks bill grin

The trees are starting to look like spring is here. Must be a lovely street when they are in full bloom.
DrAW!: i can't wait grin
some great processing going on here Docsmile
DrAW!: thanks tim smile
I do the same and prefer to enhance the colours, shadows and highlights to bring out the impact of the photo, this is like a sale photo. done to capture the viewers eye and it works for me. nice photo
DrAW!: thanks derek smile

The gleaming horses in this street are without stables.

I wonder what the gripe is about improving the dynamic range - very few photographs that include both sky and foreground can reproduce the range that you actually observed.
DrAW!: thanks louis,
sad thing about the stables huh tongue

DraW, i can see that Nigeria is not far from you!
Was Olu maintain's 'first thing na hummer'(yahooze) playing in your head?
Abi is the Jeep in focus a clone of the Hummer?
Nice image.Spring is really sprung!
DrAW!: ah see you,
hummer dey america well well
I like very much this picture, tones are wonderful !
DrAW!: thank you smile
emm let me know when these people want to sell their cars, particularly the hummer and the camry, the rest forget it - we don't use cars older than 5 years in naija. with these una express roads, the shocks must be in good condition.Dr wale , do you know you can open a mobile photo studio in that van behind the H ? no tax , nothing.then all the lights wasting on that hummer , let the owner rent them to you as studio lights.will let you know any other havard genius i can lend you, so that you will make money qiuck and come back home on time.lol
DrAW!: lol!
