There Is Always Time For Derby

Photo of the Day

Today I thought that I would pick this photo that I took in California. After a long day we made time to see a derby bout in Roseville. I have seen a bit of derby around here, but it was intriguing to see how it was handled out west. Everything really seemed very similar  I don’t know what I was expecting. Here is a picture of the star of the night Colt 45 as she cruised back to the bench after calling a bout off. For some reason I liked the composition here, and figured it would make it onto the site sooner or later.

Technical Data

This was an easy edit. I just applied the ‘Strong 300 Look’ preset by Matt Kloskowski. It basically drains all most of the color from the image except for the red. I have made variations of this preset for different colors, and I really like it. A small crop to place my subject where I wanted her, and I was done.
