(Nikon D700, Nikon 16mm Fisheye, ISO 200, Exposure 1/8000 @ f/2.8)
With fall in the air and lacking something new to post I thought I would post this shot I took last year at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan. Greenfield Village was created by Henry Ford, so it’s not surprising that the Model T and other old Ford automobiles should be prominently displayed. The museum offers rides in some of the older cars. This visit occurred in mid November on a wonderful Indian summer day. It was getting later in the day and the streets of the village were becoming empty. The less crowded village streets became a nice background to the old Ford automobiles that were still tooling around the village that day.
Processing the image was fairly straight-forward. I wanted to emphasize the car and add a bit of vintage feeling to the shot so I added a fairly strong vignette. I also liked the way the vignette worked with curvature of the image created by the fisheye lens. I used the Shadow/Highlight layer in Photoshop to bring back some details in the sky. The rest of the changes were done in Lightroom and involved mostly adjusting the blacks and adding a bit of fill light in spots.
