It wasn’t shiny and pretty like the other cars but it had a character all it’s own which not only warranted my photographing it but also taking that photograph to a new level by applying some high contrast/HDR-ish effects to it. This automobile has a bit of a “I’m dangerous” swagger about it don’t you think? So which version do you like and why?

Thanks! I wonder what the heck is all of that coming out of the front grill.
I wonder all of a sudden why I love these old cars.?? Is it I’m becoming an old fart ??
No. It’s because as we get older we are more aware of what we like and don’t like.
I know I’ve said it before, but cars from this era had style. I like the bottom version better. To me it looks more real. Just my opinion.
Well the bottom is the real version 😉 Thank you for your opinion and why. I do like the top version but just for artsy sake yanno? Why do I think of the movie Christine when I look at this car?
I too like the top version; it has a `gangster`feel about it, a harshness yet with style. The original image is pretty good in itself, but the top one just appeals more. Great shot and treatment!!
I like both but like you I think the top treatment gives it a more “don’t mess with me” aura.
I like the top version. It brings out the “oldness” of the car.
Thank you for commenting 🙂
