Off-Balance

(D70, 50mm, 800 ISO, f10, 1/50 sec)

This car is in my neighbor's driveway. This would be the neighbor whose house burned down and so the property is basically abandoned. When we drove by it yesterday, I noticed the car for the first time and immediately said, "I need to get photos of that car!" The tire in the photo is flat, so the car itself is decidedly "off-balance".

Because it was rainy and dark out, I lightened and warmed the photo using PW's actions and then stylized it using TRA's Super Fun Happy action. More photos of this car (because old rusted cars kinda rock) are on my photo blog. :)
