That polarizer really did the trick! You took an old truck and turned it into a piece of art. Great shot. And congrats on potd #1218912

Heather K. McFarland level-classic 3/31/2005 5:53:19 AM

Thanks for your kind comments folks! Yes I did re-enter this for the theme contest this month!

This was shot in RAW mode, Nikkor 28mm, 1/20 sec at F14, Cokin Blue/Gold Polarizer. For post processing I did curve adjustment and then used Craig Minielly's photoshop action called shadow soft and painted back the detail in the truck only. You can purchase Craig's outstanding actions at -

Some of you wanted to see the original so here it is. #1218936
