Quartzsite is full up with with vendor tents selling everything and anything you can imagine.
There are a lot of things to photograph but I’ve learned that most vendors get nervous when they see me actually using the camera. Thus, I keep the camera in P mode and get ready to take pictures quickly. It is easier to do this with SD950IS, but yesterday I decided to try the SX10. This was my first walk through this particular tent and I was impressed with how well organized everything was and I took this shot because I like the way the way the light partially silhouettes the hanging tools against the tarp.
This was processed in Topaz DeJpeg, although it only needed a light touch. I then used curves in Aperture to partially bring out some of the detail and then painted aspects with definition — I wanted to keep the image as close to how I saw the image when I took it. Prior to settling on this, I took a look at what Topaz Adjust could do for the photo. Is it just me, or do you also sometimes find it overwhelming to choose a particular effect?
