[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello TrekLensers,

On this summer we had the chance to visit an international oldtimer festival in the town of Polgár, with lots of old cars, trucks and buses. Most of them were very photogenic - but on an event like this it's almost impossible to photograph anything else than tiny snapshots with a bunch of visitors also on it as disturbing compositional elements. So, here's one of my few shots when I managed to avoid composing any of the so-called fans into the pic.

On the workshop you can see an overview of the festival territory, taken from the tiny little tower in the background.

Thanx for looking and for your comments.

Hoi László,
I prefer the photo in the workshop above this one. :-)
This photo is well composed and has good colors, but the workshop do give a nice overview and also show some landscape.

Well talking about disturbing compositianal elements, at first sight, I didn't know if this shot was about the truck or the structure behind it.

My advice would be to shoot with aperture priority, with a larger aperture, it would able you to blur the background and bring more attention to the truck. As far as color and exposure, everything seems right tho.

Cheers and keep on shooting.
