Beauty in the Breakdown
There is something special about old cars that appeals to most photographers. When I edited this photo, I decided to add just a tiny bit of sparkle to the decaying paint, so I took it into Topaz Glow 2. I’ve been having some issues with the software, but all seemed to be going well until I brought it back into Photoshop. The photo which I had carefully and SUBTLY edited was totally pixellated (is that the term?)- just repeating lines and shapes like an old TV test pattern- nothing resembling a photograph. I ended up blending the strange image into the original and came up with this design! I know I need to download and reinstall my software- but I like the accidental art created here.
