I had a good day today ... plenty of subject matter !

No HDR this is mostly using LR and playing with clarity and vibrance as well as the usual PP work.

They are all hand held with T2i + 10-22mm + UV filter. Some shot on P some on AV. PP work to shape, level, crop, exposure corrections, virance, clarity and usual sharpening and tone curves.

Would be happy to hear your thoughts and criticisms :)

Beautiful shots, those are some pretty nice cars! No HDR? Well in that case you did a pretty nice job :)
By the way, I did notice some vignetting, in some shots stronger than in others, was that intended or does your lens vignette normally?
Thanks :)

Yes the vignetting is intentional. It's an effect added in pp. :D

Hi Rob

Hope you don't mind me joining in. I thought maybe you couldn't resist the car show, seeing it's only a short distance away. I was looking out for a Bond-like character, but you did a good job of merging into the crowds. Generally, I found it pretty hopeless trying to get a good shot with all the people, and the cars only a metre or so away from each other. Anyway, here's my efforts.

All with Nikon D40 and Sigma 10-20 lens.

Also the impala was one of my faves!

Nice images, angles, and processing. Reminds me why UWA lenses can be so cool.

Now those are nice cars! (Rob - much nicer than the lotus pics!) I like the reflections in the hubcaps of the first car and on the side of the 9th car, the interior of #11, and of course - the 59 Corvette, just to name a few... The bright green one was a little too much - reminds me of one I saw here last summer that was gold glitter and hard to look at on a sunny day! :)
Audioman, you and Rob together do a good job of making the rest of us jealous... Looking at the first picture, I would have been looking closer at the car next to the car you took a picture of, but maybe you were not looking at the car?? :wink: I really like your second picture! Looks like you both had a great day.
(Probably a dumb) Question for both of you - Many of these cars were made in America - with the steering wheel on the left side. But in one of the pictures there is a car with a steering wheel on the left next to a little car that seems to have the steering wheel on the right. Rob -am I right that the steering wheel on the Lotus is on the right? Which side of the street do they drive on in NZ?

There is a Lot of American import here and a close association with the USA as such a lot of left hand drive and American muscle cars but in NZ we drive on the left. Due to the British influence. NZ is still a colony. This is a fact I keep reminding the kiwis of ! Much to their disdain! :D

Also you just need to mention that in was the English rugby team that ended their world domination and the atmosphere heats up a little! :D
