I love 58 Chevy’s…one of my favorite cars. An old shot that I was able to salvage because of my editing skills improving. Needless to say I am happy I was able to! Now generally as a rule of thumb, I would KO the powerlines, but this time I left them in intentionally. Why? Well I started to KO them then went back, after noticing that without them, the telephone pole is just kinda strange and they add a sense of perspective in this shot.

Processed with Photoshop, LucisArts, Virtual Photographer, about 7 layers, and custom color retro actions using curves.

    AWLSOME IMAGE! I LOVE CHEVY, with the effect of the sky and all going on in the background. Maybe it reminds me of my time when I was an enviromental waste-water operator. I now its crazy, but I loved the job, and ran some of the cleanest water you have ever seen. I dont think I would of drink it, but it was clear to the visual eye!
