What if you took the front end of a '57 Chevy, the side panels from a '58 Chevy, and the rear end of a '59 Chevy and bolted them on a Corvette C6 frame? It might look something like this.   This is the 789, from N2A Motors. A little classic, a little contem...

Three RAW files merged in Luminance and processed in Topaz Adjust 5 to enhance color and sharpen, then an overlay for the border.

'63 Ford Galaxie 500

As I was wandering through a car show recently I ran into this sweet Galaxie 500.  It appears to be a daily driver, but is in great condition.  With the 390 under the hood, I bet it's a fun, if somewhat expensive, commute.

Three RAW exposures merged in Luminance, then processed in Snapseed desktop to highlight detail and get the most out of the heavy overcast sky.

Alcazar de Segovia

Another shot from my castle sculpture collection.
 
Alcazar de Segovia

The Alcazar de Segovia, or Segovia Castle, like many Spanish fortresses, started off as an Arab fort during the Moorish occupation, and was itself built on the remains of a Roman outpost.  The Alcazar was home to Spanish monarchs for around 400 years before the court moved to Madrid in the mid 16th century, after which the fortress was used as a prison, the headquarters of the Royal Artillery School, and currently is the home of the General Archives of the Spanish military.

This is single RAW exposure tone-mapped in Luminance HdR, then processed in Topaz Adjust 5 to simulate (not well, unfortunately) a wet-plate collodion print.  A series of gradient and texture overlays were used to age the image, and another texture layer for the matting.

A little more post-processing fun from my castle collection.
 
Taj Mahal, Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India

Even though it's a mausoleum rather than a castle, the Taj Mahal was included in the set of castle sculptures I collected, and so I include it here. Built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third wife Mumtaz Mahal, construction began in 1632 and took about 20 years to complete. One of the most recognizable structures in the world, the Taj Mahal combines elements of Muslim, Persian, and Indian architectural styles.

For this image, I started with a single exposure tone-mapped in Luminance HDR to bring out detail and texture, then into Topaz Adjust 5 to enhance color and sharpness. Into CS2 to add a texture overlay for background detail, then a couple of texture layers to create the matting. I used an assortment of brushes with the Eraser tool to create the ragged edges along with drop shadows to create the illusion of depth.

The Candy Factory

Built in 1907, this was home to the Hopkins Candy Factory, which had sales in every state east of the Mississippi River and shipped over five tons of candy daily.  The candy factory stopped production around 1917.  Today it's the home of the Center for Performing Arts and also hosts exhibitions by local artists.

Processed in Photoshop to look antique. I used a curves adjustment layer to narrow the tonal range, then a gradient map to create a split tone effect. After that, a texture overlay made from a scan of an old daguerreotype to create the faded edges.

1972 Plymouth Fury III Police Special

I've always liked police cars, and this '72 Fury has been well-preserved by Prince William County's finest for over 40 years.  The car may have aged well, but I thought I'd try to make the photo look like it was taken when the she was still brand new.  I used a series of gradient maps, a fill layer, and a curves adjustment layer to get the retro coloring, then a vignette and a border to simulate a print.  I finished off with a texture overlay to add a grungy look.   After all, it's been sitting in the back of a drawer for a few decades, right?

Triangles on a Tree

Driving by a local park a while back I noticed something wrapped around the trunk of a tree.  Someone had wrapped a string of knitted triangles around this massive oak.  So of course I photographed it.

A single RAW exposured, I think I used the Lomo filter from Topaz adjust and some curves adjustment layers in CS2.

Free software from DxO
 
DxO is giving away FilmPack 3 Essentials

Just stumbled across this.  DxO is giving away their FilmPack 3 Essentials film emulation package until October 31.  Just visit this link to download: http://www.dxo.com/intl/sony

Here I applied the Fuji Neopan Arcos 100 preset, then opened the controls and added a blue filter and slight selenium tone.  Very cool software, and you can't beat the price.

Did you have a problem getting the unlock code emailed to you? I never received an email back from them so didn't install the files I downloaded.

Another antiqued image from my town's recent Civil War commemoration.
 
The Captain's Table

Another shot from our recent Civil War Weekend, part of our ongoing commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.  Two muskets and an artillery captain's hat sit on a hide-covered field table.

For this image, I started with three RAW exposures tone-mapped in Luminance HDR, then into CS2 where I used a series of gradient adjustment layers to age the image.  A curves adjustment layer was used to reduce the contrast, and Topaz Labs Lens Effects filter was used to create a bit of lens distortion.  A couple of texture overlays added the scratches and blemishes.
