No moody black and white image today, just a simple color shot of a wonderful automobile. This shot shows the exhaust pipes of a 1935 Auburn Speedster. The Auburn was manufactured in Auburn, Indiana and was noted in its day for being a high performance automobile. Before a customer received their automobile, it was certified to have been tested to 100.8 Miles Per Hour by Ab Jenkins a professional race car driver known for setting speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. I’ve always liked the look of the Auburn Speedster. There is something about the chrome pipes coming out of the engine that just looks cool and exudes speed.
Here is a full body shot of the Auburn. I screwed up when I took this shot because I had my aperture set to f1.8 which meant that much of the car was out of focus.
There wasn’t much processing done to the finished image. I made some minor exposure tweaks in Lightroom and used Topaz Adjust to pull out a little bit more of the fine details in the image.
Hope you enjoy it!
