Now comes the clever part. The two HDR images are loaded into Photoshop as layers and by using a layer mask on the upper layer you can select those parts of the image below that you want to show through, replacing the parts of the upper layer you don't like.
Once the masking is complete you can flatten the layers into a single image and set about cleaning it up using Photoshop. This usually involves tweaking the colour and contrast, editing out debris on the floor and background, and removing the block of wood under the kickstand that I use to set the bike in a more upright position.
Once the image has been cleaned up the fun can begin. I will use a variety of Photoshop techniques to add drama. Vignettes, textures, desaturating the background and subtle shifts in colour and tone. Recently I started using Luminar AI as a Photoshop plug-in. This allows me to add sun-rays, fog, and all sorts of goodies as well as offering a selection of preset cinematic effects.
You can see a selection of different edits with the Kawasaki Vulcan below. Same image but totally different looks to the finished product.
