Bye Bye Mazda

We had to return the rental car yesterday because our policy covers the rental only until the cheque is released, which happened yesterday.


This car had been pretty magnificent … the Mazda 3 is a wonderful small car and it is no surprise that the fellas on Top Gear continually name it as the best small car available.

The above image was shot with flash and was very dark. I really screwed up the image … so I raised the whole thing in post processing and the noise was horrific. I smoothed the noise heavily using Topaz Denoise 3 and the image turned out acceptably.

Of course, this is exactly the kind of mixed lighting image that lends itself to black and white treatment …
