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.
From my (approximately 2 minutes of) research using Wikipedia and Google Images, I belive the car in the foreground is a Ford Prefect E493A Utility from the late 40’s to early 50’s. Please let me know if I’m incorrect so that I can update the description!
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.
