Moody Mississippi River

October 31

The moody Mississippi River photographed in Memphis, Tennessee 1959. Old car, set against gritty railway tracks, grey sky and murky water, its a not a pretty scene, but all the richer in atmosphere as a result.

Tone and texture is everything in this image. I smoothed the sky and roughed up the tracks. The car is in its original color.

Before and after. Click for big.
