Cuba Car

Post by minniev » Fri Mar 29, 2019 8:23 pm

More processing experiments under way.

Let me know about the processing. It's all about the car, but I tried to artify it a little with some color and grunge alterations that felt a little vintage to me . please share your thoughts

Processing wise I guess it has a bit of a vintage feel so good for you....compositionally it seems awkward...

This is one ole' Chevy that may be beyond repair, car wise !!! The photo? If grunge was the goal, more is in need. The mark may have been missed with the shutter, but it is what it is. I always love to view vintage car/trucks even if the owner has made bad choices with upgrading. A roof rack on a 51' or 52' Chevrolet? Unheard of until now. Thanks Minnie, as I'm banging my head. :wall:

Thanks for looking!

I think most of my Cuba pictures are compositionally weak, from either shooting while walking or from a bus window. I'm trying to make a book of them because my husband wants one and it's far more a chore than usual. But he is not discerning, and won't care.

Perhaps I should add more grunge to compensate! Photos from buses are never what we want but sometimes what we try to dress up to compensate for, especially when cool old cars are involved. The Cuban people are very inventive and have done all kinds of odd stuff to these old cars to suit them to a particular purpose or just for their own taste.

Absolutely, sometimes vehicles never come out as planned and no amount of processing seems to satisfy, so I'll usually used the car in a composite at a later date.

Cuba gave me a whole lot of old cars that you may see again in various places. It is a treasure trove of that stuff.
