This may sound silly, but getting a reasonably good photo of a car at the park was the most difficult task. Lots of people meant little room to take the photos plus very crowded blackouts. Both, made the photography more difficult than I expected before I went.
In this shot, I did not have to complete with all the people, since the owner did not let anyone set inside his car. I consider the autos in the Art Car Parade to be more akin to cartoons than real automobiles, hence, my treatment of the photo. I wanted the photo to remind the viewer of something that they might see in their favorite super hero cartoon.
Camera settings: Nikon D3, Nikon 50mm f/1.4 shot at ISO 360, f/11 and 1/60th of a second.
Lightroom—Set black and white points, added clarity and increased contrast, and adjusted saturation of various colors.
Photoshop—Used Topaz Adjust to bring out details in the car’s interior (masked-off background portions of photo) and high-pass filter method to sharpen the automobiles interior.
