Canon 20D, 17-40L, 100 ISO, f10, 1/200th

Taken at a car show at the Texas Motor Speedway near Fort Worth. This is an annual event that attracts more than 1,500 proud owners and 10s of thousands of admiring "fans".

walter,

Very good exposure control. The clouds didn't wash out in this rather diffcult exposure. Although, perhaps the Canon 20D has good dynamic range to help out..

Very nicely done.

Aloha

love the detail in the shot. Nice angle, good exposure, just the right reflection off the chrome and paint work. The only thing I can fault on (IMO) is the person to the right of the photo, the reason I say that is only because my eyes keep wondering over to the person and I lose focus on the main subject, other than that love the shot. BUT I doappreciate that there were people everywhere and not much room to shoot without getting someone in the photo.

Always look forward to your postings.

Packards...they were such beautiful cars! Now, was that blue an original color? I thought Packards came is black or maroon only!

I like the angle you chose for this shot. As Selvin mentioned, it's amazing that you got some blue in the sky. Great job!

I'm sure that this was not the original paint.

It is amazing how much difference monitors can make. At work, I could not see the person on the right in the first photo. I could tell that something was there but not that is was a person.

I really like both photos but I think the first is the best. I like the second photo but I don't care too much for the border/frame.
