Spirit Of Ecstasy

By Alandyv8
Thank you for all your c's & c's on the daylilies yesterday, today I thought we'll do something different again, I saw this old Rolls on display behind Arley Station on The Severn Valley Railway. I couldn't get a decent shot of the whole car due to other vehicles and people so I concentrated on details and the detail everyone recognises is the spirit of ecstasy bonnet ornament. It was a scorching hot day with barely a cloud in the sky and trying to photograph a chrome headlamp and radiator grille was not the easiest photograph I've ever taken Smile.

excellent images but V2 stands out because of the classic mono tone capture!

A classic shot of the Lady v1 with the bit of red reflection caught my eye.

Well spotted and perceived, like the the pov, what imho would help the composition would be to clone out the tree, it tends to draw your attention away from the true elements of this fine image.
