My job takes me to a number of cities around the USA, and I usually look to see if there's a car show in town.

Even a car with a poor paint job can become a "keeper" -- or a poorly exposed shot -- if you tinker with it in a program like Photoshop or Corel.

For example:

These are really well done. I'm not generally into car shots, but these are incredibly dynami. Way to Go!

Classic cars are indeed works of art on wheels.

that last shot is really interesting... it looks almost like some sort of marketing shot done in a studio, then you see the reflection of the people and background in the chrome and realize it was taken outdoors on a sunny day...

OK, here's one for the weekend. As you can imagine, I frequent car shows. This Chevy pickup was taken at the Texas Motor Speedway where there were more than 2000 vehicles on display.

And, finally, a 1930's era Chevrolet customized coupe. While I'm passionate about photographing cars, it's nothing compared with the passion that folks have for creating these "works of art" from old vehicles.

Really great work all together. Just one gripe with the packard passion shot. You need to edit out the beer belly in the right window reflection. looks weird. I can appreciate the time you put into the work though. Good job.

Thanks for the suggestion. Normally I do mask out the "see-through" portions, such as glass. Here's a revised view of the Packard.
