Curse of The Golden Idol by kkart Curse of The Golden Idol by kkart
Curse of The Golden Idol

I L O V E 60's Cadillac's, I love em even more when they are 1960-1966, this one being a '64. Even more when they are lowered with painted wheels, have Lake Pipes, and wide whitewalls!

Welcome to the West Side Sinners Kar Klub, hailing from Denver, Colorado, and bring you more hair grease than a can of 40 weight motor oil! I saw this in front of their shop with a few of their other rides and had to stop, it was mandatory. No one around at all, I started shooting away...was kinda nice not having to worry about a ton of people at a car show for once. The building in the background which you will see in upcoming shots, provided a nice authentic backdrop as well.

Processed from RAW in Lightroom, then onwards to PS and LucisArt. Thoughts welcomed and print to come!

:bulletred: Thanks everyone for your feedback & comments. It is impossible for me to say thank you to everyone who leaves comments, as it takes away from me seeing YOUR work, but if you do I will swing by your page and check your work out.
Thanks!

---John

You have a knack for picking the right tones to bring your work to life! This really captures the personality of the car!

I've seen cars that were painted to look gold, but nothing as gold as this. It seems so natural. I love it.

I like this angle. It makes the car seem like it's smiling, as if the tire were the mouth line.

Excellent shot. :love:
