About the Image(s)

Nikon D3 w/24-120mm lens at 24mm.1/10 second at f/16 ISO 200. Processed in Lightroom then converted to monochrome using Silver Efex using the High Structure Smooth preset, using a yellow-green filter. The sepia toned and vignetted using lens vignette. Then back into Lightroom with some small adjustments, then using the adjustment brush, brought out detail in the car and darkened the detail in the background. This was an experiment in taking an image from 9 years ago and reprocessing it.

I like both the mono and color versions. You have wonderful details (especially the ferns in the background) and this is just the kind of photo I like! The only small suggestions I have are to darken some areas in the background to provide more depth and to lighten the car frame some to separate it from the background a little more.   Posted: 01/04/2020 20:08:16

I like the image but prefer the colour version because of the limited colour range. I have tried to separate the car from the background in the mono but not to my satisfaction. I suspect we all have good images sitting on our hard drive but which have never been shown.   Posted: 01/14/2020 07:02:59

I, too, prefer the colour version if only because that colour palette is a favourite of mine. I also think that separation of the old truck from the background is less of an issue in the colour image. Great composition and detail in both. Fun taking a second look at an old image, yeah?   Posted: 01/14/2020 23:12:08

I like the color image also (brings car forward) but Cindy's suggestions help the mono. I can imagine both versions on a large print.   Posted: 01/26/2020 13:51:46

Great find, good eye award. Mono version is best in my mind.   Posted: 01/28/2020 18:01:03
