    As a noob and a certified car freak I was pleased to see all the auto photos here. Here's one of mine.


    This is an early '50s Jaguar XK 140. I think. Early evening, shot into the Sun.

    ooh pretty. I love how most of the car is in shadow, also how top of the line automotive design of the 50s has distinct characteristics highlighted in this picture.

    one must not forget the eras of film, this looks like a scanned color negative conversion. I like the grain for apicture of a car this old.

    I'm, not sure I can answer your questions. I'm pretty new to digital photography. This was taken at the AACA fall meet at Hershey PA. By the end of the day everything is covered with a layer of dust. That may account for the haze if you're talking about the painted surfaces.

    I was using a little 3mp Oly camera, but if you are saying it looks like I took a picture of some world reknown automotive photographers work, I'll take the compliment and wrap myself in it.

    It's a straight up shot ceptin' for cloning some stuff out of the top of the picture. The top of the car was in the shade of a canopy tent and required very little work to remove. I think this was the first time I used a cloning tool. The sun was directly behind the car and everything was shaded except for the front of the car.

    Thank you too, Zada. Ron
