Today's photo is another shot that I took at the small roadside carnival in the old Kmart parking lot near Marbach and Loop 410. I took a series of bracketed shots, but since the bumper cars moved quite a bit between photos, I ended up using a single shot to create an HDR image, thanks to adding and subtracting exposure using Digital Photo Professional, which comes bundled with Canon DSLR cameras. I had a little bit of trouble getting this photo exactly how I wanted, so for the finished product I used one of the presets in Nik Silver Efex Pro to give the photo a slight vignette look, which applying quite a bit more desaturation than I normally use. The resulting photo captures a slightly eerie, creepy, and isolated feeling in the shot, which is pretty much exactly how attending the carnival made me feel.
