Saturated Vanishing Points

By sjatkinson
Just had to go awol with the levels on this one Smile
The Palouse region in south eastern Washington State. You can get lost in there.... The car is my Oldsmobile 88 Royale which I bought for 1100 bucks to save renting one for the three months I was in the USA photographing the harvest.

The Vignetting is NOT Photoshop. Its a combination of lens, aperture, polz filter and accentuated by the extreme levels adjustments. Thats all.

Except for the vignetting effect at the corners, works very well indeed.

I'm not sure about the (PS?) vignetting, but otherwise I like it.

Just love the saturation and contrast. Really suits this form of photo. Excellent composition, colour and DoF. Well executed.

Great depth and saturation, the clouds seem almost unreal! You're really drawn down the road by it all.
True americana shot.

Kath K thank you! I tell you, I was out in some remote places for sure. Good job I know how to repair cars...and tractors! I figured that if the car was seriously immobilised... before long someone would pass through...even deep in the desert. My Oldsmobile just kept on going Smile

oh by the way, the vignetting is NOT Photoshop.....its the polz for one thing and possibly the lens and chosen aperture Accentuated by the fact that I saturated the whole image making any darkness that would have been otherwise unobtrusive...obtrusive.
