October 2021 - This Blue one is "Red Hot"

About the Image(s)

My little town hosts a "Hot Rod" festival so I thought I'd go down and take a few shots. Lots of nice cars but this one caught my eye with the old fat guy looking over it. As usual for me, not much post processing; I thought the colors were pretty bright so I didn't want to do any saturation. It was a nice sunny day (we do have them on the Oregon "rain" coast) and because of the white building and white truck behind it I did have to tone down the highlights quite a bit. I also cropped the image quite a bit.

I shot it with my Canon R; RF24-105mm lens at 105mm,ss 1/640, ISO 640, f/8.

Ed, that's one nice 'chopper'. I hope you got some nice close ups of the detail.   Posted: 10/07/2021 20:42:46

I agree with Jerry on this one. I also am curious how many detail shots you acquired that day. Were the owners allowed to drive around and parade their cars in front of the onlookers? That would have been fun to see and listen to the noise from the engines. Car buffs would be in heaven.   Posted: 10/08/2021 11:38:19
