Oldies are the Best

Went to Calstock yesterday, on the train, a localish village with a National Trust House just a few miles outside of it. The village is gorgeous with this really cool viaduct towering over it, in the best and most beautiful way. Loved this Morris Minor* (I think it is) with the structure in the background. Wish I could clone out easily, this would have looked so much cooler without the newer cars in the picture.

*if you think it's the wrong shape for a MM it'll be the lens, it made the car appear longer at the front, but I like it like that.

This isn't hdr'd by the way, I played around with the contrast and tones in color efex, but didn't like it, but liked it more than the original, so then I started playing around with the Tiff in Lightroom, desaturating more, adding more contrast and clarity, a subtle red with the hue slider, painting more light on the bonnet side and windows, that sort of thing, and this is what I ended up with.
