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.
This was a brand new motor in front of the fire engine red backdrop at the Edelbrock booth at the Vette Set show. The varios parts had more color tones and more details in the original capture and you could make out all of the belts interconnecting components, but rather than produce a purely documentary image I wanted to produce something more stylized. My intent was to convey an idea of a mechanical device, but to let your mind decide what specific object(s) the image represents, sort of like a Rorschach ink blot.
