(Olympus E-3, 7-14mm at 40.0 mm (2x crop factor), ISO 100, Exposure 1/320 sec @f/5.6)

This shot shows the back end of a 1959 Buick Electra 225 which was on display at the 2009 Concours d’Elegance held at Meadowbrook Hall in Rochester Hills, Michigan. The Meadowbrook Concours is always a highlight of the summer for me, since I love to photograph classic cars and this show has them in abundance.

Processing for this shot involved removing blue from the shot, as I found it distracting. It was a sunny day and the blue sky was reflected in the chrome and trunk. I also adjusted the contrast a bit. I finished up by adding a little vignette using Lightroom.

Comments and feedback welcome.
