Photo of the Day: The Grinder Diptych

Inspired by Mustang Matt’s Honorable Mention in The Lucie Foundation Awards, I finally took the time and necessary steps to combine the two images into a final diptych.  The portrait of the DeWalt Metal Grinder required rework, exchanging the original yellow vignetted background for a strong maroon in order to coalesce with the light inside the aged Mustang.
