I feel the need…

I gave in and finally used my Nikon D200 for a shot in this PAD.

One of Nik's relatives has just bought this awesome vehicle and I had to break out the DSLR to do it justice.

The only thing you can't glean from this shot is the size of the whale tail on its backside. Monstrous!

I must admit I like Porsche design, especially some of the retro models. I'd love to drive one; and really love to own one!

For those wondering about the processing - Other than me accidentally deleting the file I was working on, like a dumbass, this shot was fairly straight forward. I masked it against black and white, to which I added a photo filter layer (yellow). I sharpened contrast, dodged and burnt areas of shadow and highlight. I then sharpened the overall image while blurring the back portion. Simple!
