You may notice the unintentional selfie in the photo below.  One of the hazards of shooting shiny objects in bright sunlight.

    Oh, in this case I love the unintentional selfie, because it’s way down in the corner, being quiet and polite. The soft treatment in the second one is soooo nice!

      Thanks, Lynn. The softening effect comes from the negative clarity adjustment. I then try to bring back some sharpness to a small area (in this case the “Belvidere” nameplate) with the adjustment brush so the photo doesn’t look completely out of focus.

        That makes sense – I thought you might be sliding the clarity down, and the effect is great. You’re so skillful at it that the name plate doesn’t look like it was handled any differently. Today this look is making me think of milkshakes! Or malteds. Yumm.

    I always think of the term “negative clarity” as a bit of an oxymoron. Except when it works, then it’s just right. I’m with bluebrightly…makes me want to go find a drive in! As far as the unintentional selfie, oops.

      Thanks, Tom. I have ended up with a lot of “unintentional selfies”. It’s partly my own fault but I do try to wear neutral colors to try to minimize the effect.

    At the risk of being hopelessly sexist, I don’t know much about cars like so many women. However, I know that, in my opinion, the details in these old cars that you study put to shame the details in newer cars. I love all of the swooping, graceful lines you capture so beautifully.

      Thanks, AJ. I have a fondness for this particular car because, as a boy, I had a friend whos dad drove a car just like this. When I first saw this one I wondered if it was the exact same car.
