Neat series! I had a boyfriend in college that had a barracuda convertible - what a fun car! You certainly did a good job of using the lens to great advantage.

All very cool Ira!
I like the hat in #2.

I think that Chevy emblem alone would be worth a couple hundred to somebody restoring a car

great photos
you didnt get a huge amount of distortion either

one thing i like with the lens was that you can get close enough ao that no one walks in front of you lol

what did you do to the last one?
i can never that shallow a depth of field

For the last shot I used the soft focus feature in Picasa 3, centered on the radiator cap and then sized to get the area I wanted. The other shots are just cropped and resized.

Thanks for all the comments.
