Every year the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology holds a benefit car show called Eyes on Design. The event is held at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan. What I like about this event is that it always has an interesting collection of automobiles. Each year the event has a particular theme. This year is was on automotive design: past, present and future.
The image you see above is the tail end of a 1935 Chrysler Airflow automobile. It was a very bright day and as I was walking around the show I saw this car and I really liked how the light was highlighting the curves.
In post processing I darkened the blacks to emphasize the shadows, but that was the way I saw the shot when I took it. Additional processing was used to blacken the windows.
