    Moorestown held its annual craft/car show last Saturday. It was a beautiful day which was a welcome change from the 9 straight days of rain that we had. I tried something different this year when taking these shots and I am not sure how it works. Please take a look at the gallery and let me know what you think.

    Cool tight shots Dave. Love the Cragars with the faux knockoff spinners, and the Pontiac Chieftain(?) hood ornament. The Cowl Induction, was that from a Boss Mustang, or a Camero? The Motoguzzi, what's that one of?

    Certainly, Dave could answer for himself...but I thought that I would chime in to say that the cowl induction was probably from a 1970 Chevelle SS.

    Dave,

    These images are absolutely great. I hate taking images at car shows because the cars are too close together and there are strange reflections, but you did an outstanding job of capturing the detail of these fine machines.
     
  6. Dave, very nice close-ups. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Steve. Yep, thats a Pontiac hood ornament :smile:
    I had to give big explanination of the Indian profile on the ornament to my kids.
    (They just rolled their eyes at me.)
    The cowl induction hood was from a Chevelle SS. The Motoguzzi is from a 3 wheel Bugatti roadster.

    Thanks Frank. I usually try to capture the whole car, but like you said it's tough with the crowds and the cars being so close. I thought I would try some detail shots. I'm still not sure whether they work or not. :rolleyes:

    Thanks Phil.

    Thanks Gale. I am very pleased with the 24-120VR. I had heard how it was soft but I don't find that to be the case at all. I just added some more images to the pbase gallery if you are interested.
     
  12. Dave,
    Very nice shots, the detail shots are a nice way to be able to avoid the crowd problem in the photos. Thanks for sharing. Haven't checked your gallery yet but will after seeing these samples here.
