Old tractor

By jacomes
Another view of yesterday's old tractor. I was trying out NIK Analog Efex and produced this. I was aiming for a vintage battered look, what do you think of the result?

As usual thank you everyone for your votes and comments on"I wouldn't buy that" yesterday, or who dropped by, your interest and support is much appreciated

A very interesting experiment - especially the light rays.

A fair enough comment Leo, I was experimenting with Analog Efex., so still need to sort out its way of working. So now I've uploaded V2 - the image edited in DxO Photolab3 and the starting point for the lead image. V1 was straight from the camera.

The lead reminds me of that old cinematic effect where they film in broad daylight, then darken the film in post production to try to make us believe it was shot at night.
Just my personal take, but i feel this could be a better conversion to b&w if the sun flare wasn't there. A tricky one to process, methinks....

Yes it's less faffed. The lead is perhaps overfaffed, I've brightened it somewhat which is an improvement (not uploaded)
