57, 58, 59...
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...

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.

This is the 789, from N2A Motors. A little classic, a little contemporary, very sweet.

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

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?

'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.

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.
