If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1,000 MPG.
Story behind the image…
I discovered this wonderful old car in Seligman, AZ along Route 66. It’s condition and the fact that we were on Route 66 gave me inspiration for this image. I began with a five frame bracket with a base exposure of ISO 200 f10 @ 1/15 sec. I processed the HDR using Photomatix Pro and then added the “grunge” effect using NIK filters including a double dose of Tonal Contrast, some Brilliance and Warmth to liven it up even more, a bit of Classical Soft Focus to take the extreme edge off and then I took the image to NIK Silver Efex Pro 2 and then lowered the opacity of the B&W layer by about 50% to reduce the intense colors and enhance the age and wear. Nikon D4, AF-S 28-300mm 3.5-5.6 VR @ 35mm.
