The village festival today included a vintage car rally so here is a selection of snaps; the problem with a show like this is the distracting and unsympathetic setting, with people milling about, other cars and houses in the background etc. so for the car shots I decided to mask out everything except the subject.

and finally:

That's always the issues with an sort of similar show, well shot and presented Rob.

Brilliant set. A picture of the entire car, with people milling around or distracting background is going to win no prizes.

My favourite is the portrait! Nicely done.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Not a single one I don't enjoy - But that portrait is superb

All good but the white American thing is really startling. Certainly the best of them for me.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

I've pretty much stopped taking photos at static car shows for exactly that reason, it's just too difficult to get a decent view without people standing in the way. As someone who also exhibits a car at these shows, it's very nice that people are interested enough to come and look at the cars, it just doesn't make for much of a photo. I think I prefer the detail close-ups in the first three photos to the masked-off cars.
