A time long ago in a galaxy far away I used to make line drawings out of negatives with an enlarger and some sheets of lith film. Hmmm things have certainly changed since then. Enough said, Here are a before and after of my beloved little sports car.

Line layer over original, heavily manipulated afterwards.

Tim, I like the treatment you applied to your Z-car. My main reaction, however, had to do with the photo itself. You apparently used a wide angle for the shot, which tends to give the car a "bowed" appearance. To me, it was somewhat distracting.

When we look at something familiar to us, such as the Datsun Z, our brain seems to try to match what we are seeing with a stored image of what it should look like. Unless the photographer is deliberately trying to distort the image, our brain says "Whoa! Somthing's a bit off, here." To me, it took away from the creativity you were applying to the shot.

Perhaps it's just me, tho. I'm a car guy with an obsessive hobby of photographing cars -- 25,500 shotsto date. So, I'm sure I would pick up on something that others woudn't find bothersome.

Anyway, a nice treatment. I envy your Z.

Walter

Walter thanks for your response. This shot was done at about 35mm eqv. But I choose this one particulary because I knew it would manipulate well. As for my favorite pic of the shoot it would have to be this one shot at a 28mm eqv. I like to force perspective in my auto pics I feel it gives them more dynamic. By the way check out the 65 Caddy pics I posted in theother photos section..TDT

Tim. Yeah, I like that one. Emphasizes the long hood on the Z. I did see your Caddy shots, which were very, very nice.

Hi TDeT

I think your line conversion-plus-more-editing pic workswell.

Subject/treatment go together nicely.
