Artist's Description

Canon 5D Mark 2 24-1-5mm 1:4 lens. Photoshop CS5

1931 Ford Pickup Coca Cola bottle truck photographed at the Simsbury Airport Fly in and Car Show. I created this image in color but didn’t feel it looked true to the period. I liked the distressed charactor of the old Coke sign and I brought in some texture to the background anc base to bring that feeling to the ovarall piece. The truck was bright yellow And that is a tough color to work with because it shows less detail. I went into Selective Color and added megenta to get a bit more tonal range into the yellow. The conversion to B&W unifies the image and makes the elements more cohesive.
