Oh yeah, big motor, big fun. :D

I used to machine 6-71 blowers (the housings, end plates, shafts and covers anyway) back in the day. They were for diesel engines, though, not race cars. :)

In keeping with the theme, I had this printed on metal and it came out really well.

It doesn't have a blower but it has everything else, including a certain something that maybe deserves a category... let's call it The Motor as Art. Feel free to share your art works. :)

All great! The warm tones in #7 and #9 make them especially appealing. Here's one from a car show:

Not one I'd normally post, but I'm test driving Topaz Mask AI (finished up in Adjust AI / Photoshop). Mask AI shows potential but you need to watch the tutorials first to get started off properly.

Have been using Topaz for years. Upgraded to Topaz Denoise AI, Adjust AI, Sharpen AI some time ago, and last week to Mask AI.

All wonderful programs I'd recommend. They work well in my Lightroom+Photoshop flow, and work well with my fav: TK Actions for Photoshop.

Recent updates to Topaz Mask AI (still needs work) and Studio 2 have led me to continue to revisit some old shots.

Pretty nice
Thanks, asaya. I know engines aren't high on everyone's list of things to shoot, but I like the challenge of making a hunk of iron look appealing. Of course it helps a lot when there's several pounds worth of chromed goodies attached. ;)

Sometimes other parts of the car catch my eye... :)
