While in Liverpool (I was about to say earlier today but have just noticed that it is now gone midnight, so ...) yesterday, I went to St Peter's church (it was 50 years ago that a certain Mr Lennon was introduced to a Mr McCartney att he church fete). There was a horse drawn carriage and a couple of vintage Bentleys parked outside. Having taken the obligatory shot of the horses I took a couple of photos of the Bentleys, including this one.

It was taken with the Sigma 75-300mm at 240mm, F7.1 and 1/400s. Unfortunately, it loses quite a bit when cropped and resized to 800x600 (a 100% crop is in the post below)

Oooh - very nice picture! The cars sure look lovely, but I imagine that the insurance would be outrageous.
