once upon a time

when cars had more interesting shapes....

Another shot from the street party.
The original scene was too sharp & colourful (was shooting in P mode...), that´s now the result of 2 hours work, hope you like it.

Short summary what I`ve done ;)
-duplicated the layer - original image, converted to BW, tinted.
-using the clone stamp with the closest surroundings on the car´s outline about 7mm - when you blur the layer, the outline would be blurred too - then added gaussian blur.
-changing the opacity so I can see the real car shining through and erasing the blurred car from the edited layer by hand.
-changing back the opacity to 100%
-after merging the images I softened the borders by hand with the blur tool with a 5 px radius.

1/400sec - F6.3 - ISO100 - 13.3mm
