The Departure

A tableau that might have been real in the last century, or alive just in  my mind.    This is a composite of three images; the Buick is pink and white in real life.

White On Pink Vintage Buick

Car Show Fortnight

The last image in this series from the Ontario Police Department Guns & Hoses car show on July 23, 2011 is another Buick.  This car is from the same era as my childhood and I love the color scheme on this automobile, it reminds me of a Dreamsicle.  It took some lawyer masking trickery in Photoshop to get the body tones right and I also added the background blur in Photoshop.


Antique Red & Black Buick

Car Show Fortnight

Today begins the Car Show Fortnight on the blog, two weeks of automotive images captured at car shows in the greater L.A. area.  This image represents the oldest vehicle in this current series, an antique Buick that drove to the Ontario Police Department’s Guns & Hoses Car Show, in their parking lot 23, 2011.  This image was created from two tone mapped versions produced in HDR Efex Pro, then layered and masked in Photoshop.

Update: This is a re-worked version of the original images, after considering Ken’s feedback.
