Snowblind

Here's a photo of my grandfather driving in the bitter cold of a Manitoba winter in 1974. The image is a little washed out even after my attempts to clean it up, and I'd have to be a Photoshop master to re-paint the missing side of the car. So instead of fixing the photo, I've transformed it into yet another in my series of film frames:
I cropped the image to give it a widescreen aspect ratio, added the film's title, gave it a gradient to fade the letters (in keeping with the movie's theme), and added grain for a more film-like patina. I think this is a bit more dramatic than the original, although I'm starting to feel that I really need to find a quality font package, if such things exist for a reasonable price.
