Yes, this is another shot of a classic car taken at the Concours d'Elegance show at Meadowbrook. It's an old Buick. While I was processing the image I noticed the shadows of the people on the fender. I wanted to find some way to bring out the people but 'normal' development didn't really work.


As part of an experiment, I played around with various filters just to see what might look nice. In this case, this image was created by using a couple different 'threshold' filters which were used to reduce the image to its most abstract. Also, normally I'd put a border around an item posted to Flickr just to make it stand out against the which background. For this shot, I decided to let the image merge with the background.


I like the color image as well, so this wasn't a case of trying to create an image out of a bad shot, I just wanted to try something different. Feel free to let me know what you think.
