Spotted this well preserved 1955 (I think) Cadillac parked at a shopping center this morning. Masked out the distracting background which I darkened and added some blurr. Also used the Shadow/Highlight feature in CS3 to bring out details in the grill. C&C appreciated.

Great shot Walter. Your idea was right however, my only complaint is the fuzzy edges around the car. If you close cropped the car, then made it a selection then inverse the selection you can then work away without the fuzzy edge. Other than that

Nice shot, I like the way everything came out except the guy in the red shirt walking away from the car. Maybe clone him out after all it's not his car anyway.

Great Shot! I agree with both above comments that the soft lines and man in red are a bit distracting, but the way the grill and whole nose of the car really 'pops' out of the picture is very interesting to me.

Great picture!

When I first looked at the photo, I saw a Cadillac grill and two bull-like horns sticking out and pointed slightly inward. I think it was because of the even lighting and highly reflective chrome. I had shake my head to concentrate to filter the effect and remember that these torpedo-like projections were common on many 1950's cars, including my old '57 Buick.
