The location is in western Arizona along US 50 and every vehicle in this shot is a Studebaker truck. Even though it was midday I was able to create a memorable photograph which comes back to my belief that with practice and study a photographer can capture good images no matter what time of day he is shooting.
I really like the way Topaz Adjust helped me bring out the colors in this shot. I first opened the image in Aperture 3 and made some minor adjustments before taking it into Topaz Adjust. After Topaz Adjust I returned it to Aperture for sharpening and output for the printer.
I have printed this image at 24″x36″ and the detail is amazing. I use a local print shop, Unique Imaging Concepts, to print most of my work. They print on many different substrates but my choice is their glossy aluminum. Their process is dye-sublimation printing which really works well to preserve the vibrance and detail that I require in my work for gallery exhibition. I still print on paper when the client or gallery requires that medium but my personal preference is printing on aluminum.
