Minor Matters

By KKmoments
I'm back off my travels.... yep I visit the beautiful sights of North Yorkshire, see wonderful views and I present you with a Morris Minor.... this was taken at Goathland, the land of the TV series 'Heartbeat'.... taken for my 14 year old son Josh who is 'in love' with these cars!!!

Taken in RAW and popped into photomatix and tone mapped to 'add authenticity' to an already 'vintage' vehicle.... the rust 'had' to be left in according to Josh to get the full effect....

Thanks for viewing and any C&C welcomed, hopefully when I preview my files properly I will be able to give Whitby and its surrounding areas an airing!!

Hope you're all enjoying the warm w/end....

Good capture. My Father is a capenter and was once asked to shape the wood for replacing on one of these cars many years ago.
A superb capture

Great image. Can't say much more than what has already been said. It's kinda sad to see it rust away.
