About the Image(s)

The original was shot in the North Carolina mountains with Sony a7R converted to 650nm.

Processed with Sivereffects then Viveza for some global structure and contrast. Followed by lots of localized adjustments of curves and slight adjustment of Selective Colour.

Wow, this looks like a restored photo! compared to the original image you have brought out the background contrast and details overall. The original looks out of focus, and your post processing has sharped the car and details. Did you use HDR to get the car window clear to see inside? Looks like the photographer was the warrior here, bringing out the photo!   Posted: 01/08/2022 17:48:26

Thank you for the kind comments.
Not HDR, but a whole slew of localized curves adjustments. Window, grass, rails, wheel wells, fender, hood, on and on. Each has its own curve.
The thing I couldn't bring out was the whole license plate. Only revealed the "Vote."

Hi Terry. You probably know that vitage vehicles is a subject I pursue continuously. I believe you have found a gem. As always your post processing had resulted in what looks to me to be good tonal range, and I think angle from which you captured this is perfect. Nice work.   Posted: 01/10/2022 13:08:48

We were driving back to Boone, North Carolina when came across a line of about 7-8 pieces of old equipment, some vehicles and some farm implements with that low split rail fence across the front of them. Had to stop. While photographing them the owner came home and stopped. He said it was OK to shoot them and then wanted to know if we wanted to buy any of them :)
I wish I had taken some colour images. The rust across the hood and fenders had a lovely tone.
