Buick 1931

Just a couple of teaser images from the HUGE car show we attended yesterday.  Both of us are a bit sunburned (poor DH got the worst of it) and I’m not even sure we saw all of the vehicles there…there were that many!  Also, with these two images I experimented with high contrast/HDR-ish effects.  What do you think?  I forgot to step out of the reflective surface view in one shot – an important thing to remember if you are ever shooting shiny things; you will show up if you don’t angle the shot properly.

I don’t know what it is about old hood ornaments that draws me like bees to sweet flowers; I love them!  But check out where that side view mirror is!!

    Car shows are a photographer’s dream and nightmare all rolled into one. Such a wide variety of shapes, colors and textures! And you mentioned reflections too. As a mechanic by trade, I’m drawn to anything mechanical (airshows, car shows, museums), and have a huge appreciation for photos of these subjects too. Nice shots!! 🙂

    Those were the days when cars were so much more than just a ride. I doubt will ever see them again, dag-nab-it!
