1924 Hispano-Suiza

Model H6C Tulipwood Torpedo commissioned by Andre Dubonnet

[Jun. 25th, 2009 02:23:29 PM]

This is the same car I shot for the 100 year old challenge, and i did such a horrible job processing the shot, that I used it again. This is the best looking car I have ever seen, but this is my last time to this particular well.

The light was pretty bad so there is a bit of motion blur and a fall off in focus towards the back. Cropped and rotated, The original RAW was over saturated, so I lowered sat about 24% and played with the curves a bit to bring up mid tones, ran the shadows and highlight filters,USM at 160, 0.5,0 to get it a bit crisp, then USM at 40, 60,22 to get some of the hazy blur out, save for web, and resharpen the smaller image at 55,0.5,0

I like this shot a lot more than the one in the 100 year old challenge. Great capture.
