[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe

There's a theme on TrekEarth about cars of the communist era.
When I first looked at it, I knew I have to take part... So, here's the hidden treasure of socialism: Polski Fiat 126P.

But I also thought: why not post-processing another image for TrekLens?

Very few of this car type are still running on the streets. I knew the mother of my older son's classmate has one, so I asked the young lady to let me photograph her car. She was a bit surprised, but gladly agreed - so You, colleagues, can see it.

I respectfully dedicate it to monsieur Mario Belanger (EOSF1), who's the master of racecar photos. Mario, here's a metalbox from Formula Eastern. :)

PP: layer duplication, desaturation, gaussian and very slight radial blur of the background, soft sepia, framing, signing, re-sizing. I hope You'll like it.

A different, but not heavily post-processed image may be seen here on TrekEarth.

Ez klassz!
Tiszta B&W-ben is el tudnám képzelni...

Genial imagen Laslo.
Muy buenos detalles, resaltando el color contra el bg en b/w.
Buena nota y enlaces.
Saludos, JL.

What a cute little car, and probably very cheap on gas as well. A very nice picture. Well done!!! TFS

This is so cool Laszlo.
It reminds me a little of my little old Renault Dauphine that I had in the 70's
Great post.

Hello Lazlo

Great capture of this old car ..the Polski Fiat.
Great way you worked on the colours. Than east Germany had the 'Trabant' and in the light of this all, i can recommend a good film on DVD from this perioid: Called ''Das leben der anderen'

Regards John :)

Hello Laszlo,

Interesting and well done job!

:) later

Hello Laszlo,

Hi Laszlo
Classic shot, great PP work, perhaps you have been a bit to quick at the rear end of the car, the green colors are visible there. But good work, compliments.

Hello Laszlo,
Very nice PP and color work for this shot. Well-conceived and executed!

Hi Laszlo,
What a nice contribution this morning . I never saw a metalbox(you said it in your note) like that . Nice PP work with the color and the B & W . Good idea .


Great and a funny shot.
We had one of those in the family.
It was the greatest of the 80s and 90s.

Nice selective colour effect, and blurred background.

Szia László !
Hát ehhez csak gratulálni lehet. Az éles látásért, a Matuzsélemi korért, és a gyorsaságért, ami a képen is látszik. :))
Tied ? :))

I admit from very close cause in the begin i had the feeling it was a toy but of great quality!
It's so different and so "square" angle!
I enjoy the blurred desaturated background! It work greatly!

Hello Lazlo !

Finally catching up after a few weeks off line. . This cutie attracted my attention at once (^_^). Cool and funny post. The post processing works here creating this little babby to pop out of our screen.

Mario is one of my favorites since I joined TL. We share same passions together, photography , race cars , F1 , beautiful
women (^_*).


Hi Laszlo,
I really like this type of car. Especially when they have a hook .... as if they are very powerful !
Very good capture with great DOF and good color.

Szia Laci,
Felfigyeltem erre az érdekes képre a galériádban, nagyon jól komponált és hatásaiban is szépen készített felvétel. Tetszik a háttér elmosódása és a pengeéles színes autó. Mintha csak süvítene. :) Szerintem a legtöbb TrekLens látogatónak nincs fogalma (legalábbis akik bolygónk egy szerencsésebb részén tartózkodnak) hogy ez mi is. Hutyutyu... :)
