    Haha, still learning both the E-PL2 and LR3. I used the panasonic 14mm and a CPL.

    I love the way the B&W processing has the jet black car against the light grey bushes that are against the darker grey bushes. Really great tones, well-done sir!

    Not "just an old car." It's a Merc! 1950, if I'm not mistaken. Flathead 8. When I was in high school, this was a very popular car for customizing, usually by removing all chrome, and adding flames.

    Those were the days.

    Haha, very true Mike! I honestly know very little about cars (this car show just happened to be down the road from me the other day), and the only way I knew what make this car was was the "Mercury" label on the side. But even though I know that and the year probably isn't right, I still can't get the old song "Hot Rod Lincoln" out of my head. :)

    Thanks everyone! I took a few photos there but this is my favorite one. I originally made it a B&W just because the trees behind were a little distracting to me, but I think the end product was better because of that.

    I remember being in an auto parts store one time when an old guy came in and said "Ah need a dastabwewtah fo a fitty-fo muckry!". Your photo makes me think of that and chuckle.

    I'm like Mike. I remember those from when I was in high school. The one I remember the most was metallic blue. Your shot of this one is excellent.
