1940 Ford

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
1940 Ford
1940 Ford
Taken from a recent car show. Used numerous layers for this. Used on one software for main photo for coloring effects. Quick select car (inverse)and took original background and used flood filter. Cloned a lightpole. added a frame from plugin site, flood again, pixel bender. Then I added front of car with more cloning. I have not figured out how the inside of car got to be this color yet so I am sorry about the greenish color. A little more tweeking of color and I think that is it.

this is very creative Patricia. I like it. Had never thought of combining the fore and aft images into one. Great concept.

Exceptional use of editing software Patricia. You have many great photo art images but this one stands out for me.

Your use of the flood filter and overlaying the smaller car creates an excellent visual statement.

Thanks for including the befor pictures so we can see the transformation you performed.

You are very talented. I like how you brought out the colors and came up with a way to show the front and back. I will check out the flood filter as that added uniqueness to this image.Thank you so much for explaining your work.

Thanks Dale, Irene, Phyllis and Neal. I actually made this for my Dad. Dale I try to remember to upload original when I do something like this. Easier to understand what I did especially if I remember all the details that went into it. Irene front and back of a car is easier to print one photo as two. MAy take a lot of work but it is worth it. Neal I hope my Dad says wow also. Phyllis I think you would like flood I believe you can try a trial.

I like being able to see both the front & the back in one photo! Great idea! The box frame with sky is a much better bg, too.

I wonder if the sky blue is what is that greenish color you were talking about?? It kindof looks like the same color as the upper left in the frame. How it got there is a mystery to me, too! :) Still, I like the final photo!

The flood filter works very well in this situation, makes for a much more interesting image than the original ones on plain concrete or with distracting vehicles in the back-ground. Very well thought up & presented. Good work=^..^=
