Cruising in style

A neighbor has this lovely old hot rod that he’s brought up to show condition.  He takes it out for a cruise now and then.  Here is one of the photos I’ve made as he rolls past.

The blur is created by using a slow shutter speed on the camera and then panning with the car as it drives by.  Here, the shutter is set to 1/8 seconds using a 300mm lens on my Canon 1D Mark III.

 

In this second image, I have softened edges in the image to play up the painterly quality of this motion blur.  In Adobe Lightroom, I reduced the clarity to -84, set sharpening to 0, and adjusted noise reduction (luminance 100, detail 0 and contrast 0).  A different look, I’m going to print both to see which I like more.
