'S' Type

By AngelaR
First attempt at car shots following the Steam Fair last weekend. This 1967 'S' Type Jaguar was on display with the Classic Cars. Cropped like this because they were parked so close, and of course, there were so many people around them all.

Cropped, played with curves, levels and saturation (can't remember what I did in the end!), framed and sharpened.

Comments and crits welcome.

Red - it needs to be red.........or silver like the one my dad had when I was a kid.

Still, you have done a good job with the reflections and keeping yourself out of them

I tend to agree with Cornelia about a lower viewpoint, but the image still works for me. The car almost looks like it's smiling, doesn't it? Good capture.

Good shot, the writing should be smaller as not to detract from the image Smile

deserves a click coz its one of my favourite cars, altho its like driving a pig.
because of the beautiful curves of the car you could probably crop a lot close i.e the grill or around headlights and the lighting should emphasize the curves.
Hope you took plenty of shots at different angles, because you can get some great images from classic cars.
well done, and thanks for bringing back a few happy memories

Thank you Richard, Martin, Liz and Pete.

Pete - I've had my other half moaning about wanting one of these for years - or a Rover 90, Rover 100 or a Series III Land Rover, and loads of others!!
