An old tank

Magach (מגח) - a series of tanks in Israeli service. This is probably a Magach 5.

There’s not much to say about this photo: it’s a Magach (מגח) – a series of tanks in Israeli service.

And for those of you that are geeks (photoshop-interested):

  • Select your object by drawing a rough circle with a high feather, invert it & darken the corners
  • Add a curve layer – gently tweak
  • Color balance layer: change midtones, shadows & highlights
  • Brightness/contrast layer. Play around with it.
  • Add a black layer with lens flare effect (filter – render – lens flare). Set the layer to screen & play with the opacity.
  • Add a paper texture. I downloaded my paper texture after a quick image search online (fit to the picture, multiply & play with opacity).
  • Add a hue/saturation layer.
  • Merge your layers & create a copy, then filter-sharpen-unsharp mask.
