I found what I can best refer to as a ‘Car Graveyard’ when I was in Morgan (in the Riverland region of South Australia) recently. Around 20 old cars just rotting away in a field.

This EK/FB Holden ute has obviously seen better days!

Due to the difficult lighting conditions and the absence of any supplementary lighting, this image (and the other 3 in the series that I have also uploaded) was blended using 3 to 4 different images. The blending was done manually using luminosity blending techniques in Photoshop CS4, involving the use of luminosity masks and my trusty Wacom tablet.

After the blended image was complete, I then performed the black and white conversion (also in Photoshop CS4), which I felt was the best way to portray these scenes.

Taken with Canon EOS 40D camera, using Canon EF-S 10-22mm lens, tripod mounted with live-view used to focus and remote control used to release shutter.

    Nice shot love the use of B&W here.

  • Thanks Gary. I appreciate your comment! I kept the colour versions of images in this ‘car graveyard’ series, but I think that the black and white versions do look much better.

    Great find and a great image!

  • Thanks Xcarguy. Yeah I couldn’t believe my luck when I saw the field full of car-casses (pardon the pun) so close to where I was staying!
