    many thanks everybody

    tdekany: yes it's trabant. But for the gas, it's not so cheap. I think most of those big old classic cars are just taken for spin on a sunny day or some special events.

    Classic car parade in Reykjavik, Iceland

    As others have eluded to, the classic American cars on Iceland seem to primarily be used on special occasions. I was lucky to by random chance come out from dinner in restaurant in Reykjavik just as a classic car parade was driving down the main street!

    There really wasn't much light at that hour, but I think my E-PL2 and Panasonic 20/1.7 did a decent job. :smile:

    thanks for sharing. I originally thought this was done with OMD until you mention
    EPL2 and 20mm. Didnt realise it have such good color dynamic range. Did you use
    vivid or normal setting ?

    Thanks - they were for sure shot with the "normal" color setting. But I may well have set the color saturation to +1 (I do that for about half of my shots).
