Not sure about the wheels and disc brakes yet the whole image makes a fine bit of art. TG

Good contrast there. The car would also look interesting if it was sot head on with the two typhoons at each side..

Thank you guys.

As ever, trying to get great shots at car meets is a problem. Specially with great looking cars like this because they attract a lot of attention and its hard to get the cars without people all round them. In the case of the Bel air and some others, I had to spy my chances and so there was little time to actually set up shots. If I was well known- which I am not and I knew all the people who have the cars- which I sadly dont as I am only just starting to do this, I could have arranged a private shooting of the car in a quieter place.

disks wise, as they say , I had to shoot what was there LOL

tornado wise, originally, the tornado was dead centre the roof of the car and I posted it on my instagram account and someone commented that the composition did not look quite right with it there as it was drawing attention away from the car. I then re edited it and moved the tornado/ hurricane to the left to make it look as it was approaching. I also cocked up with the titles because my other classic car was actually called Play Misty for me and this was called quiet storm LOL

I have about 7 really cracking shots of classic cars yet to do and have started to put them onto displate with a view to start selling images- something i have not done before. It would be great to start to get some money back for all the money I spent of camera gear and my cintiq.
