Green Hot Rod Detail

Nikon D7000 18-135mm @ 35mm ISO 620 3-bkts f/22 Lr3, HEP1; TpzSim

A closer view and from a slightly different angle of the Green Hot Rod, emphasizing the power plant.  I applied an oil paint effect using the Topaz Labs Simplify plug-in for Photoshop.  This is part of my exploration of painterly effects used with photographic images.  My aim here is not to document, but rather to convey the essence of the scene in a manner that evokes emotional thought.

    I see those straight pipes coming out and I’ll bet you can hear this thing coming a mile away. Great processing for a rod like this.
