[QUOTE=Osnap65;1155935]
I believe the charger is actually a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda.

I've got a question about the last picture. I'm cunfussed by the dof. It seems to vary.

Yes sir, That's exactly correct! I've never been a big Mopar fan and could only think Charger or Challenger.

You're pretty sharp on the last photo too.
I have to confess, after 5 hrs of walking around in the sun, and then coming home and sitting at my computer editing for another 8 hrs, I was in some serious pain and couldn't wait to get to bed for some much needed rest. I hurried through the editing on this one and even though it wasn't what I wanted it looked better than the original. The background was way over exposed and so busy it was distracting from the car so, I tried to make it less so buy using gaussian blur and darkening it some... I didn't realize just how bad it looked until now.

GW,

I had a '68 charger in high school and although that has been many, many, moons ago, the lines just didn't look right. I always thought a cuda would have been fun. Same power plant, smaller car.

As for the last photo, I am just starting a better understanding of DOF and then you through me that curve. I even put my glasses on to make sure I was seeing things right.

Keep them coming. I'm looking forward to more.

Bill

My brother's are really into Shelby's. Even named his daughter Shelby. Although, he swears she's not named after the car. Yeah, right!

The last one to me looks like it's a scale model car. Looks cool!

The show from the 90's is Family Matters. And, I just saw the one where he buys the car because Laura says she'd go anywhere with him if he had a car. Being up at all hours of the night, you see some strange shows.

Nice images. Sorry to hear you were in such pain from being there all day.

Hey Patty,
I had a very good friend that had a Shelby he showed in many car shows and won quite a few trophies with before he passed away a few month ago. I have an interesting little story about that I'll share in another thread later.
