Silver Lining

By K_T  
I took this photo at a VW event last summer. Changed the sky and skyline and just used black and white paint on a softlight for the body work.

I called it Silver Lining because the history of the beetle and the war is awful, yet we have this wonderful piece of engineering from it. Sometimes it is hard to look for a good outcome in periods of time, especially in the 1960s+.

No fancy lens here, bog stanard kit lens.

Great sky... good angle on the bug and wonderful processing to give it that sinister look, that you don't usually associate with VW Beetles.

Despite what you say in your profile, you are no beginner!!! Wink

Well only had my dSLR 9 months, I'm a beginner photographer (but a good one), but many years in PS skills =P Might change it to the next rank when I get a year behind me =)
