Photographer's Note

This Chevrolet Caprice was parked in a big parking lot in the shadow of a tree. The midday sun rays pierced through the tree behind the car casting interesting shadows on the chassis of the car. I am not a car expert, but from my research in the internet, this model was built probably somewhere around the 1970's if I am not wrong. This car is just beautiful and it was in excellent condition.

From my experience so far in Japan I can tell that the Japanese do love and appreciate classic vintage cars, and they are usually completely restored. At first I was tempted to convert the photograph to black and white, but then I decided to leave it in color, but give it a bit a vintage touch.

Post edit workflow (Photoshop):
Cropped photo, added vignette (darkened), reduced highlights (too much glare), masked several parts of the car to brighten shadow areas, increase the contrast and clarity, reduced vibrance and changed colour temperature to give it a bit of a 1970's look.
