    Australia is a culture of V8 muscle as well and although "resistence is futile" we still produce some of the finest V8 products around. The old cry of the V8's .. "no substitute for horsepower" is now the cry of turbo Japanese Sewing Machines on wheels. "You will be assimilated" it seems
    If the V8's become dinosaurs that are only allowed at race tracks and car rallies then they will become even stronger in folklore than before

    I like the shot here A.L. The composition allows us to take in the first car and then gently wander across the bonnets (hoods) of the other cars and enjoy the colours.

    At first I thought the blue in the shadows was too much but I can see in the reflection that the sky was very, very blue that day so perhaps not.

    I think the vignetting might have been more effective if there was a bit more room around the cars for the vignette to fade in. I think.

    If I had time to think about it, I would have stood a little higher and further back. I have 4 good photos I can send the group, should make them happy. It was just a real fun and cool sunday to just happen upon event and turned in to a couple of hours of gear head chat I rarely ever get so if I can get them a few photos for being so hospitable more than my pleasure to give them something back. This is one is just for me, it was like building a model car in a way.
