Great jcpix 2013-06-20 18:09

Hi Russ,

Even for us non car buffs, this is cool! I absolutely love the long, sleek lines and reflective effects. This is such a great composition that really takes us for a ride, figuratively speaking of course! :) It has a wonderful "artsy" appeal, and a strong impact from this close perspective and angle...that fin gives a big punch to the image. Nice contrast too from the darkened sky. Awesome visualization here, this looks great! I may not know a lot about the car itself, but I can sure appreciate its beauty and nostalgia. Have a good one.

All the best,

Talking To jcpix: Look at the WS

Thanks, Jason! This styling was so extravagant that in hindsight it speaks as much to American culture of the 1950s as to automotive design. And it was cool that -- while this was a top-of-the-line Chevy -- it was a Chevy, the least expensive brand in GM's line-up. I feel like an old fart when I hear myself say, "They don't build 'em like that anymore." Add in the mystique of Route 66 (this car show was in Old Town Albuquerque, on the original route) and hopefully we have an image that will speak to people in many ways about times gone by.

I chuckled at your great "takes us for a ride" pun -- it's a very kind comment and very cleverly put!

I was completely flabbergasted by the detail that was in the raw file, so I have posted a WS today showing how the image looked "originally." Like I said in the WS note, I have never seen such a dramatic example of hidden detail. Using the DODGE tool felt like wiping off soot -- with every pass, more color and definition emerged. CRAZY!

All my best,

Austin, Texas
