Peugot 203 Paris HDR Black and White Martin Soler

Peugeot 203 HDR Black and White

Old cars are great subjects for photography, but I must admit they’re not always that easy to shoot. Especially when they are parked between other cars and a trash can. As I came out of the Izis Expo in Hotel de Ville Paris I was pumped for some shots (Izis is one of the great French photographers – shot fantastic people shots).

I saw the car and as I only have a wide-angle lens currently I was trying to find a good angle to shoot it. On top of it my tripod doesn’t quite work yet (need to get a quick release plate) so it was a handheld HDR photo of 5 shots. I converted it to black and white as I feel it fits the car better.

The Peugeot 203 was the first car that rolled out of Peugeot after WWII the last one was produced in 1960 so this one is minimally 50 years old. Wow, can you imagine what your current car would look like in 50 years?

Only retouches was HDR and converting to black and white.

    Your only lens is a 10mm? Wow. That must be a challenge! The Canon 10-22 is next on my wish list of lenses. Lovely job with a challenging subject.

  3. Very nice tones, I really like the contrast in this shot rich blacks and nice crisp hi-lites.
    Great job.
