Duesenberg Aircraft Engine
A visit to the Auburn, Cord, Duesenberg Museum in Auburn, Indiana is a photographer's dream. Floor after floor of gorgeous automobiles from the early 20th century to admire and photograph. Cars are not the only things to make images of however.
I came across this aircraft engine in the Drafting Room on the second floor of the museum. The repeated pattern of the exhaust pipes immediately caught my eye and I made several images of the engine.
When I arrived home and began editing my images I thought this one would look more striking as a monochrome image. I made the conversion using Nik Silver Effects Pro and tweaked it a bit more in Lightroom.
Here is the full color version of the image.
I think the black & White version has more impact, but that's just my opinion. The monochrome version placed 2nd at my camera club competition. Which do you like best?
