Thank you George, I very much appreciate it. After photographing it with my Nikon I exported the jpg into Photoshop and used a multitude of filters on it, One of my first filter layers was a Gausian blur which gave it the softness, another filter layer was done in PSP using Infrared b/w which gave it the dark smooth shadows. the rest were just various filter effects that I tweak with.

Richard, this was so lovingly treated by you. You have a good eye for posing these beauties. I too marvel at the soft glow. Was that an after effect in Photoshop, a diffusing ring on the lens or the result of some pearlescent-magic paint job? The result is outstanding. As for the car itself - I'm a longtime driver of, and painter of many classic autos and I suppose a bit of a purist - prude dude, frowning on 'hot-rods' and 'chopped' old timers, but I have to say that whoever redesigned this old Packard (not a great year) produced a sculptural work of art. Glad you chose to honor it with your own viewpoint. - - - GEORGE
