Creative Interpretations - Classic Cars

Decided to give these 2 images the Photoshop treatment and thought maybe some of you guys might like a go. I took them at a car show a couple of years ago. Went for 2 totally different styles...

Like it Swampy, that Firebird is just begging to be brought out from the background. Thanks for posting on my first thread!

Went for the "Sin City" look this time. Added the sparkles too.

I used the software from here,
http://www.mediachance.com/hdri/fakehdr.html
There is the full version or a plug in for fake hdr(fitymi) which is tone mapping a single jpeg, also the trial version is quite handy to get to know the process ( to make a "proper" hdr you need at least 3 shots of the same image but with different exposures )
hope that helps you

Re: Creative Interpretations - Classic Cars

This thread brought back many memories...

Attached is a pic of the car I bought in 1971, a 1970 Dodge Challenger. Sold it in 1984. Wish I still had it. (Wish I still had my hair, too! LOL).

Heavy sigh...
