I'll leave the other kind of horse power for a few days and go back to the type with wheels. This is off an old Buick that even had the sheriff signs on the sides. Was a wet an windy day so some shots actually looked better in b&w.Will post ws with the whole car. This shot was taken as a closeup on its own, not cropped from the whole car.I had one guy comment on the day when he noticed me getting a lot of cu shots of the details on the cars.Some cars weren't worth a whole photo but some of the parts on them were.

Hi Fiona.

Neat self portrait lol.
Impressive semetry, the tones to the metalwork have been captured well, the texture and rain droplets add much appeal, also the diagonal. You have the knack withphotographs and impressions. tfs

stv ;o))

Nice shot Fiona,
a good PoV and I like the bubbles on the paintwork

Good to see in the picture, Fiona :)

A wonderful POV for shooting the vintage subject with superb details.
The droplets add another charm and beauty to the scene.
I like the black tones of the car with nice diffused light.

Good shot all in all!

Kind regards,

Well seen. I think I would just clone out that line on the left :D

You are correct, the Old Beauties, love your line here. Last month I attended no less than 3 car shows in California. I really never get tired of photographing these beauties. Color is grand, but when you can create BW and get the down and dirty look, well its a high. Cheers


Brilliant shot! Just the tonality alone makes greyscale freaks like me; stare with his tongue hung out in disbelief... well done!
