This isn't the original, but it is not nearly as processed as the other, so if you were curious . . . :)

If I remember correctly the only processing I did to this was crop, take out a distracting broken tree trunk in the background and another distracting piece and sharpen some. Oh, and neaten up the car (it had white spots on the red paint and a reflection of a house on the right side and fender that I took off since you can't see the house in the photo therefore you shouldn't see the house reflection). And I probably adjusted the light slightly.

This is a model 1949 Cadillac Coupe DeVille. I laid down in the road in front of my house to take this. Reached my hand around to grab at the car ala King Kong movies.

If some of you couldn't tell it's a model car, that's a good thing! It means the effect I was going for might have worked! Thanks for all your kind comments and support on this and my other dailies - cool group of people, fer sher. (and I welcome suggestions on my dailies, too, btw).
