Vintage Chevy Low Rider

Car Show Fortnight

This silver bullet of a circa 1950 Chevrolet is one of my favorite automotive images to date.  The car itself if a fairly straight forward HDR image, I did take some liberty and tinted the windows in post processing.  I also added an underpainting effect to the foreground and background using Topaz Labs’ Simplify plug-in in Photoshop.  This is the kind of image that keeps me going, wanting to capture more and more automotive frames.

  1. Nice! I’ve tried a few vintage cars in HDR myself and they come up pretty well! Nicely done 🙂

    The ’50s is my favorite era for cars, and this is a sweetheart. Nice job, Wayne.
