#196 Classic Cars

Post by Simon-vtr » Sun Nov 12, 2017 11:46 pm

Thanks Mel that was a good subject and probably not the easiest to capture.

Being an RAC Patrol and car enthusiast I think its appropriate the next subject should be classic cars which will include parts of the car, badges or vehicle memorabilia
Good luck

The closing date will be Sunday 26th November 9pm

Mel Ford Zodiac
A splendid shot of a Ford zodiac very well lite and sharp. I can only see two faults with this picture... the cigarette butt under the front bumper and the AA badge on the front grill.

JOJO Reporting For Duty
A good line up slightly tight in the frame but the letterbox works for this shot. I may of been tempted to get closer and settle for three rather than four. I think the middle two are a green goddess and a ferret I'm not sure about the others. Try lifting the shadows in Raw.

John. Sign of the Zodiac
Good title for this low key abstract take on the zodiac. Well framed and an interesting spin on a classic car.

Stuart Wolseley 1500
Another good old British classic with one of those yellow badges. I see you have got down low for this shot always works better when your shooting from the corner of the wing

Gwen Morris Minor
Lovely picture of Morris they don't make grills like that anymore. I think it would be a stronger image if the full number plate and the top of the grill was on. But I know I can't see the full picture and quite often there is something that the judge can't see outside the frame and is the reason behind why you couldn't step back a little

Terry BroardWay
Excellent shot of a very old classic car I'm not entirely sure what model it is but it's a safe bet to say it's British racing green love the leather straps going over the bonnet and the detail at the front of the vehicle. It's a shame the organisers don't space the cars out little bit further so us photographers can get better images without running into another vehicle in the background

Janice
A fantastic low key shot. I like the chequered floor and how it reflects in the car it certainly adds a little something to the picture

Graham
The Morris Traveler Woody my grandfather swore by these vehicles. A great shot with no blown out whites on what looks to be a very bright day judging by the shadows being casted within the image. I would of run the spot healing brush over the rust near the osf headlight.

Gordon Morris Ten
Extra points Gordon for cropping out the AA and the green flag badges. love the shallow depth of field in the bonnet area I think that was an excellent choice. May be a little use of the surface blur tool would possibly get rid of the speckling within the chrome

John Mustang
A Very nice corner shot of a modern mustang muscle car

Mike Rolls Royce
A true classic with a stunning legendary grill. The Black and White treatment suits the car and it's well framed but I can't help but notice the no parking sign to the right of the image. Still if you can afford it I dare say that a £60 parking fine isn't going to break the bank

Thank you all very much for entering my first forum competition of classic and vintage cars. Everyone is a winner in its own right and I hope I haven't offended anybody with my personal views and comments
