My Jeep

Postby Duck » Sun Nov 05, 2017 6:25 pm

I'm taking inspiration from several people here for my rendition of this image of me in my Jeep at Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in PA. All done in Photoshop but exported through Lightroom.

Great fun! I like how you've placed reflections in the windows...and your nod to MinnieV's great adventure :)

Thank Linda, but I can't take credit for the reflections. They were already there. I guess I should post a before image for people to compare.

As for the nod to Minniev's recent adventure... that was unintentional also. As you can see from my daily driver it's meant to be abused. :D

I would certainly have done better in this vehicle on the Road From Hell, which I recognize here as one of the better sections, where the speed limit was 55 km, hope you were abiding by it.

Cool use of the burst effect, something I've tinkered with but never mastered (like lots else). Love the expression on your face.

Duck, I can feel the bumps. How often do you replace shocks? Matt

Speed limit on rocks like this is about 5 mph (8 km) ;)

Super easy. Just use the radial blur effect with the effect set on Zoom. In this case I used a black brush over the jeep to create the darker edge around the jeep. If you don't want the subject's color influencing the starburst just clone it out with the surrounding scene. No need to be neat about it either.

The Jeep is an '07. I lifted the suspension in 2012 and replaced the shocks at that time. Since then it's been pretty good. I replaced the clutch on this last trip to Rausch. :oops:

Definitely a mesmerizing image for me Duck !!! Your expression and body language adds to the appeal, while the added effects is a plus indeed.

I really like this but like that it's a functional off-roader more. I can feel the action and am rooting you on! S-

Thanks Steve. This is a photo treatment I would normally never attempt if it weren't for the inspirations found on this forum. The benefit of seeing through other people's eyes.
