Default Ferrari Meet, Northern Ireland

For the first time in Northern Ireland, Ferrari Owners' Clubs from Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland met in Belfast on the Titanic Museum grounds to show off their superb supercars that very rarely can be seen on the narrow Irish roads. The event was organized by Irish Owners' Club and Charles Hurst Specialist Cars and took place on May 12th. More than 20 Ferraris turned up despite the usual Northern Irish weather for a 3h display, which was followed by the scenic drive around the Antrim coast. There was a Ferrari for everybody's taste - F40, 430 Spider, 458, Testa Rossa etc.

I had a similar shot to #7 (mine was on a black grille not paint), had the exact same problem as you: the cavallino reflected some undesired color.

on #7 either desaturate the whole picture, or select just the cavallino (or even part of it) and desaturate the color out of it. You'll probably just want to desaturate the red channel as the chrome color actually has some color to it - just play with it, you'll like it.

Thanks Aidan and Frank! Rammsteinmatt, I did try to go for the desaturated look, but it just lost the feeling, if you know what I mean, the Ferrari red reflection in the horse I found was still needed, however I know technically it would look better without it.

Personally, I'd have tried a few other angles to get more of it?
