Aperture mode, F set to minimum, focus onto this leather detail.



P.S. :
- crop
- contrast adjustment and local burning and dodging and sharpening
- copy and paste to a new layer
- desaturate
- erasing of leather parts.

Allright, this one I am not so fond of, mainly because I don't know what I am viewing. I see the fender and the door - just have no idea what the leather is and why it's there. :?

hhhmmmmm - I love a mystery. Perhaps a lover of old Fords can give us a clue, like were these original equipment the ower added after - looks like this car was a convertible? Maybe the straps held part of the top canvas?? Where are scooby doo and the mystery machine when you need them? :blah:

<edit> apologies - feeling goofy today for some reason - must be the sunshine!

oh man...

i love the look of this one sergio!

lol, although i wish i knew what it was too, and would probably like it more if i knew,

the color/bw work here is wonderful!

the fender reflections rock, and the black and white of the vehicle itself work very well with the finished product...and how you converted it to b/w...

like, if the car was blue, or red the conversion would've showed it grey, instead of the white..

anyway, very nice work here sergio! the ps work is flawless!

I can't say I'm very fond of this one either but your editing as usual if awesome. I really like the warmth of the leather against the b&w.

Well, thank you all.

Im sorry but I have to say this was really a black&white Ford.

The reason for desaturing was to remove cyan and yellow reflections which I found to be rather disturbing.

The straps are to secure the top when it is lowered.
