Taken at an auto show in overcast daylight at my son's school, the cloudy conditions created a huge soft box effect with the defused lighting emphasising the chrome of the grille. Other than some smoothing effects in post to eliminate reflections on the chrome bumpers this photo has not had any sharpening or other work done to it in post. With the exception of the highlights and some colour accents on the hood and skulls, the overall colour of the vehicle lends the photo an almost monochromatic feel, matching the 'mood' of the subject, as it were. One of my favourite detail photos of automobiles from my collection.
