I really like the first one.....The colors and shine on the cars is quite striking...my eyes are drawn to them. The black and white doesnt do much for me.

The first image is particularly well done. The colors really do make the cars jump off the screen.

I also love the sign. Make me want to try one of their shakes.

This is interesting, Bynx. This is a pair of images I would expect to see from Walter since there is an impromptu car show in his neighborhood every weekend.

Great work. When I posted this challenge, I had you in mind. You do a great job with "artistic" renderings.

Well Walter has the advantage of seeing cars that arent subject to being on roads covered in salt every winter. We get the odd one out once in a while. When the owner started his burger joint he styled in on the 50s. Each weekend throughout the summer he has these cars in his parking area on the grass beside the building. There was a good selection but unfortunately the way they parked made it easy for me to decide which ones I was going to shoot. When the lighting got the way I wanted it we moved a few of the cars to the front of the restaurant and took a few shots. It was a good night for everyone.
