PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #84 – Model A Truck

Here’s another “mini-challenge” to play with in the Photo-based Art category until the next major challenge is posted here.

The base image can be downloaded by clicking the link below the photo description.

I ran across this image the other day while surfing at DPReview.com. It's a Model A Ford truck (cira 1920s I think) put out to pasture in all places on the island of Maui, Hawaii. Nice place to retire, huh? This treasure was snapped by Kudbegud, one of the local residents.

This rig brought back fond memories for me: My dad used to restore Model-A's when I was a youngin'. He'd buy two or three at a time and munge the parts of many into a single, running car.

One day I had the misfortune of excercising extremely poor judgment by ignoring his directive to "Not play baseball around my cars." My first 'pitch' to my brother promptly crashed through the windshield he'd recently installed after weeks of junkyard surfing, turning antique windshield glass into zillions of little pieces. Dad was not pleased.

The fond memories came weeks later after he found another windshied and finally got that Model-A running. Riding in the "rumble seat" with your brother, laughing your brains out under sunny, not yet polluted Los Angeles skies is a pretty neat way to tool around town.

Enough of that. Let's see you tool around with this pic.

A BIG thanks to Kudbegud, for allowing me to post this golden nugget.

~Danny~

This version came about as a result of running two David Rowley based actions, Hayes Island and Cardiff Bay and merging (by layer mask) the results.

In the next few days I'll summarize in detail how I did this in a separate thread.

Cheers...

Danny, your dad's hobby sounds like a lot of fun. Did you inherit any of his restored vehicles?

On this one I used buzzpro simplifier with an outline overlaid.

Nothin' pretty about it!

Nothin' pretty about abandonment, even it is in Hawaii!

Here I tried to make it look like cobwebs and vines had overtaken the poor old thing. To get the cobweb effect I used KPT6 materializer set to negative numbers, then duped it and overlaid in screen mode to emphasize the webs/vines and also replace the bright colors with dreary neutrals.

I wanted to try and emphasize the car more and the jungle less. Textured oils, copied and blurred and st to overlay (I think). Then some KPT Equalizer to emphasize the car even more.

Phyllis - Both your renditions are beautiful. But "Cobwebs" is incredible, really gorgeous. I especially love the colors, they set the mood here perfectly. In a larger format it must be astounding. Excellent, excellent, excellent!

Blackknight- I can't see your image. Maybe it didn't upload properly, or did you take it away?

It was there for me just a minute ago when i checked. I heard on the news that we're on a higher terrorist alert now, so maybe it's terrorists...

I just reloaded it - see if you can see it now.

Blacknight - I can see it! It's beautiful. I really like the rich texture you achieved, and the lighting is great. Looks like a dark overcast day just before a storm. Great job.

This one is fun

1.Filter> Noise> Median (radius 3)
2.Grayscale- using Image> Adjustment> ChannlMixer (Check the Monochrome Box)
3. Using Image> Adjustment> Brightness/Contrast (Adjust to my liking)
4. Paint in new color on new layers, blending mode set at color burn
5. Add texture


Model-A No 1B

Model-A No 2B

Model-A No 3B

PHYLLIS:

Nope...Dad never kept any his rigs. He'd piece them together, then somebody would offer him a ton of $$ and he's start over.

Nice work on yours; especially like the cobweb effect.

STEVE:

Very impressive results via "Trimoon's Median Texture" method. Did you use an Adobe texture (which one?) or another source?

PHIL:

Yours turned out great. Just oustanding.
