About the Image(s)

The original image was taken several years ago at Prescott Hill Climb in Gloucestershire. I chose a viewpoint so I could photograph the cars negotiating ‘The Esses’ bend and in particular I wanted to capture a 3-wheeler Morgan with one of its wheels in the air. After the usual exposure tweaks in Photoshop Levels, I made a Background Copy and then flipped it horizontally, reduced the opacity, blended the two together and then flattened the image. The final step was to apply Silver Efex Pro 2, 034 Yellowed 2. I quite like the granularity and toning of the final monochrome version which seems to add some gravitas to the visual story.
