Yesterday I posted an image of a 1935 Duesenberg taken at the 2008 Concours d’Elegance held at Meadowbrook Hall. This image was taken from the 2007 Concours and was my first time visiting the show. The car in this image is a 1933 Packard V-12 Convertible Coupe, and is just one of fifty that were ever built. When new, the car sold for $4,000, which in 1933 was a great deal of money.

For processing, I chose a similar approach to yesterday’s Duesenberg image. I was experimenting with the Cutout filter in Photoshop and I liked the posterization effect it gave to the image. In addition to the filter, I also blacked out some areas in the corners to bring more attention to the details of the car.

I’d be happy to know your thoughts on this one.
