A few weeks back I was driving home from my daughters softball game and came across this old car along the side of the road. I made a mental note of it’s location and last weekend I went on a journey to find it. It’s about a half hour from my house and luckily found it pretty quickly.
This is about the best angle due to houses and other uninteresting surroundings. I think it brings out the character of the car. Does anyone know what make of car this is? All I remember is a gold medallion on the front but no company name at all. Do you recognize the hood ornament? Maybe John or Lois knows it, their car buffs no?
Anyway this is a simple tonemapped image from HDR Efex Pro which I then brought into Topaz Simplify and used my own preset which is a modified BuzSim preset from Topaz. Fiddled around with foreground weeds and there you have it. Satisfied but I think I’ll play more with it at a later date.
I just thought of an idea….. would anyone like the original raw files to come up with your own version? I would love to see your version. If so pm me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post your creations at a later date. Excited? I am!
