1931 Ford Model A Deluxe Roadster

Spring Car Show Season

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 24mm ISO 200 1/1000, 1/250, 1/60 f/16 Lr4 HEP1; PsCS5

I captured this classic American automobile at the Corvettes West/Ronald McDonald House car show April 1 of this year in a parking lot in Rancho Cucamonga, California.  Rather than characterizing this vehicle among adjacent contemporary vehicles and structure I elected to composite it in to a scene I had previously captured at The Huntington (Library, Galleries & Gardens) in San Marino, California more than a year earlier.  I put a lot of hand work in to this final image adjusting the edges and painting out the reflections on the body paint, but I still have a ways to go in terms of getting good edges and matching brightness, saturation and clarity in my composite work.  I do feel that the scene that I put the car in to is a great improvement to the parking lot behind a commercial building.
