Gift for a friend

A family friend of ours is celebrating a birthday and we are invited to his party.  (Shhhhh -- it's a surprise!)  He has a Model A that is his pride and joy -- I don't know how long he has been restoring it, but it actually runs and everything.  His son helped me take some pics of it secretly, since I thought he would enjoy receiving a nicely framed photo of it.  His son told me that his dad wants to paint it a forest green color when he is finished restoring it.  So I played a little with Photoshop and came up with a couple of possible photographs.  Please tell me which one you like best!

Here's the car without any help from photoshop:
And here's one after I played with it:

 I kind of like the old feel that the black and white background give it.  But my daughter thought the green leaves set off the color better, and I liked this shot of the car a little better, so I tried this one.
I can keep on playing for a few more days.  Please let me know what you think!  Thanks!

  1. Hi Kate,

    What a great car and such a nice idea. I like the last photo best. The pic with the b&w background is a bit fuzzy looking, and I'm not sure that I like the way the green looks in that pic. I think your daughter is correct to say that the green leaves make the car stand out much better. The car looks sharp and classy in that last one. I'm curious to see what others think.

    I think your friend is really going to love and appreciate this. What a nice gift and great job! Linda E.
