Artistic Rendition of Racing Photos
Over the last couple days, I have been playing with filters (plug-ins) for Photoshop Elements. Just received an update of Topaz Labs B&W Effects. I like the look I get with this plug-in. The photo on the right was taken during the Swanson CrossCountry (XC) race. Processed from Camera Raw by Photoshop Elements 9 and converted grayscale with tinting and vignette.
I can do similar and other artistic effects to any of the photos I have taken at the races. Please contact me to discuss.
Into my 11th year of cycling. My passion is singletrack, but its getting more difficult for me. Also ride bike paths, Rails-2-trails and streets (for some variety).
