I shot this rat rod at a local car show. I really dig the outrageous engine and aggressive stance this little rat has. A tunnel ram intake, straight pipes and a chopped top all scream hot rod which is why it appealed to me in the first place.
I processed this one using Aperture 3 and Topaz Adjust. Once again I used the Spicify preset and then tweaked the settings to get the overall look I wanted. Spicify does a great job accenting the texture of the rust and the colors in the scene.
I framed this image so that the diagonal lines in the photo would draw the viewer into the frame. The front tire seems poised to leap out of the frame. Once again I was shooting with a polarizer because it was around midday and I knew that the polarizer would saturate the sky and the colors in the scene.
