This sad old Stude is rusting away beside a highway in the delta farm land of Arkansas.

Nicely done. I'm always on the lookout for these old, abandoned hulks myself.

Hi Lucky,

I like the choclate toning on the pic, and surround. The texture of the Studebaker (I like them too) is almost like sandstone. Was that on the truck, or something you did afterwards?

Caroline.

Thanks, Walter. I'm rather nostalgic about the old stuff.

Here's the original, Caroline. As you can see, years of oxidation brought about the "texture" to which you refer. Our beloved Simplifier plug-in enhanced the texture. I then used Gaussian blur to smooth things out a bit and changed the hue and saturation to get the tone I wanted.

Caroline, I noticed after posting the downsized file of the original that the "texture" does not show up very well. Believe me it is much more pronounced in the full size file.

I think your finished pic - as is, on the forum - is a wonderful example of whatPS & similar progs can do.... Excellent! Thanks for explaining the process too.

Caroline.

The rusty colorization was a good choice and the shot has a big impact !

Well done, lucky2505 !

I would clone stamp that small part of cropped building on the left ... it doesn't contribute to the picture.

While I think the building on the right does ... and I would see more of it IMHO.

In any case very nice one and the shooting angle is very appropriate for the subject ... it was worthwhile to kneel before that old car ... it has returned you a great shot !

brtsergio,

You're absolutely right about cloning the building on the left. I have to admit I spent more time working on the pic than it deserved, but I called it quits when I became too sleepy to go on. It doesn't seem to me that deciding how to crop a pic should be that difficult, but I'm NEVER sure that I've made a good choice. Thanks for the suggestions.
