Experimenting, playing to no ends with no clue, but having fun with it anyway. Twenty six taken at my local bikers night spot had a classic car show yesterday. This was an interesting vehicle and maybe I should have left it in color. A beautiful bright yellow 29' Ford with a sound that was music to the ears. I decided to grunge this one up with a wrinkled paper effect.

Cool. For a second, I thought those tall things with globes on top in front of the restaurant were Texaco pumps. Old time convenience store; fill 'er up while you fill up. Matt

Matt, there were a couple of gas pumps with the globes on top, just not Texaco. This was taken at Quaker Steak and Lube http://thelube.com/locations/kentucky/florence/
This where I have gone in the past for biker night, but haven't much lately. I decided to post my color version, enjoy !!!

Both versions are great Dave. It is hard for me to give up the yellow of that terrific car, and you’ve edited it so nicely, I’ll have to speak for the color one. But the deck led edge and wrinkled appearance of the sepia one sings to me too. Excellent images, both of them. Please keep playing, and tell me how you’re doing the deckled edge.

Thanks Minnie !!! Yes, it was hard to give up the yellow, which is why I came back with a color version. The deckled edge is one I made for the B-17 bomber with wrinkled paper layer a while back if you remember. I basically cut out a white layer using the lasso tool and placing it on top of a darker layer with the center cut out for image placement. If the dark layer wasn't there then the deckled edge would not have been viewable. I'm sure you already knew that, but thought I would mention it. If there is another way, I would be interested in knowing other ways that may be easier and simpler.
