Before we get started, I would like to comment on the news I received just the other day that Chris Hemsworth has been selected as People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2014. I understand that the voting went back and forth between the two of us but he finally won out.
I came in second.
OK, So I will endeavor to make this as pain free as possible. If at any time you begin to have a sense of vertigo or mind numbing boredom, read no further. Those of the feminine persuasion should browse the internet for photos of Chris Hemsworth. Those of the male persuasion, well, I’m sure you have your favorite sites already!
So, first in Lightroom I adjusted the blacks and whites and shadow and brightness. That opened up all the darker recesses of the truck interior. But I wanted to be able to see the exterior through the glass, too. So I used a brush to adjust the saturation, contrast, and clarity in the windshield and the two other side windows. I then added a gradient filter from the bottom of the image up halfway to lighten the interior some more. Then I used a radial filter on the windows to further saturate and add contrast and clarity to the exterior. Please enjoy the slide show of my changes below!
