"Big Yellow Fins"

“Big Yellow Fins”

After I visited the local car show a couple of weeks ago, I told my wife that the one disappointment was that nobody had any cars there that had those big garish, obscene fins!!  So I figured I’d go up there last Tuesday, even though the “Tuesday Nite Car Show” was officially over.  I drove up and was disappointed when I saw only about 10 cars there.  Turns out that even though the “official” car show was done for the season, a few of the members gather on their own just to hang out and shoot the breeze.  It took all of 2 seconds for me to spot this big bad yellow beauty with these great big fins.  I was in heaven, and promptly shot about 30 shots of the back end of this car.  I mentioned to the owner that I came up to shoot some cars with big fins.  While I was shooting, I heard him say “you want fins, now there’s some fins!”  I turned around and saw this big Caddy rolling through the parking lot.  I figured he was going to pull into a spot and park, but he stopped for about 5 seconds, said something to a couple of people standing there and then took off.  I hung around till dark in hopes he would return, but unfortunately, he never came back.  Fortunately for me, I snapped off a quick frame while I was walking towards him, but before I got closer, he took off.  When I opened the images on my computer, I realized I had something there.  You can see what I did by stripping the car out and compositing it with a shot from my files of Acadia National Park in Maine.  The first shot was composited with one of my “sky backgrounds”.  Hope you like them.
