Days Gone By Editor's Pick   Days gone by
Days gone by
A less-than-favourable day's weather to get a chance to capture some images of a friends restored classic car. But with the use of Photoshop Elements and a few changes in the colour variations ended with a better than expected final result and a complete nostalgic feel.

    Very nicely done, Karen-Jane!!! It looks great in that landscape and the toning is perfect for it.

WOW! I love the Sepia tone. What a great image. Looks like the pictures my parents use to have in an old tin or shoebox. Great work, Karen-Jane! Thanks for sharing.

The gravel road is the finishing touch for this great image - well done!

Many grateful thanks, Duane, Ralf, Paula, Mark and Bonnie for the very kind comments. I had a great time taking this image apart from the weather, which was cold and damp. But thanks to Photoshop, I was very happy with the final results. We are very lucky here on the island to have such wonderful landscapes to use as a great backdrop and really set the car off. Many thanks.

You really did this classic car justice with your effects, Karen-Jane. Congratulations on its selection for the latest digital darkroom newsletter.
