For this weeks submission of Aerodynamic, like Phil I went with the automobile route. But in another direction. This past Sunday I took the fam down to Hawkesbury for the annual Auto Expo. I looked around for a car show online and this one seemed to be the most interesting as it was advertised with “Over 2000 cars!”… Nope. Not quite. But still there were a lot of cars to droll over, that’s for sure.
The El Camino was the ride I chose to go with out of all of my shots. Why? I have always been a fan of these cars. A truck and a car all in one! What’s not to like about that?! Now, I know it’s not the most aerodynamic vehicle out there, which is why I took the shot at this angle.
I then took the image into Photoshop and started to go crazy with it. Since she is a classic, I wanted the photo to look aged. I applied a vintage texture from my vast collection. Played with the hue and saturation for a while, until I came up with the final product.
Here is the original shot…
And this is my second runner up. The Mercury Comet.
I hope you enjoy!
