No, I didn't misspell "talent" but instead was using the name of the roadside produce stand in Franklin, NC, where I discovered this Nash car on display and for sale. The 1954 Metropolitan model is available for the $11,500 price given on the sign taped to the window. Right next to this car was another Nash of the same vintage, sporting the classic aqua/white, two-tone paint scheme. Both cars looked to be in great condition. In post-processing I played around with a pseudo-HDR treatment on this image to bring out the shadowed car, and used the Seventies action from Pioneer Woman's v2 set of handy Photoshop actions to give it that retro feel. For info on another fake HDR technique, view Deke McClelland's fun video here. (This image post is for Dan.)

  • Love the retro tone. You made the car look even slicker than it probably was! I'm dying to know, though, what comes before "food stamps"...

    Easy question for a social worker is who is fumbling through learning photography:)

  • ...hope my wedding 'getaway car' is a Nash Metropolitan, complete with antique luggage, inasmuch as it seems the perfect car for Elmer Fudd, whom I'm beginning to resemble...? :-)

  • There is something here that tells me you could have your own calendar! The color and composition are very nice.
