2012 NYC Invitational
Big thanks to Julio for featuring the desktop on the Valo site and his tumblr. Much appreciated. Thanks to everyone who reblogged and liked the desktop as well.

Happy Bladesgiving everyone! Will be posting the pic on the site along with download links off the flickr page. Hope you enjoy the first look. Got rid of a few extra shadows and did some processing along with some layer overlaying and blurring.
The pattern and the angle of the gate made it pretty difficult for me to shop out Angelo completely. Was able to get it done but not as smoothly as I’d like. Going to do some color correction, cross processing, and add graphics/text for the final product.
P.S. It definitely does not look this good at it’s original dimensions haha.
Going to try to make another desktop wallpaper in time to celebrate Thanksgiving. Going to be difficult for me to shop Angelo out the photo though haha. This was taken earlier in the Summer when the Valo team was in NYC. Just used a basic point and shoot.

Love this pic. The lighting and composition is dope and the photo was taken by one of my favorite bladers Jeff Stockwell. Digging the halo effect around Bailey’s left arm and shoulder too. Not really feeling the placement of the Interview text though. Hope to see some good coverage of the NYC Invitational along with some photos of people rocking the snap back.
