Story behind the image.
I was initially introduced to the owners of this Austin Mini back in December.
John and Lyn invited me to view their farm after seeing my image 'An Old Friend' at the Barewall Gallery in Burslem.
I called on them in February to look around, immediately seeing the potential. I then revisited in March when I could spend the day reorganising a giant pile of timber and other paraphernalia, which had half covered the car.
After hours of hard work I was filthy and exhausted, but ready to take my camera out of the bag!
I used props from all around the farm (returning them after).
Another few hours spent in Photoshop and at the printer delivered the final result, but only after the 7th test print.
f/14 • 0.8sec (various) • ISO100 • 17-40mm lens • focal length 17mm • tripod • studio lighting • HDR

Just in case you're interested, the 16bit multilayer file I worked on was 1.14Gb!
Until now all my prints have been 1/100.
This will be my 1st 1/50 limited edition hand produced print.
It will be printed at 15 x 10" in a 21 x 16" mount - 1.25" satin black contemporary frame profile.
The mount to be titled and signed with authentication certificates.
Other specifications are available on request.
Hope you think it was all worth it?
