TR6 and Sharpness

with 9 comments

You can take the word “sharp” to mean a lot of things.  In this case I’m applying to the crispness of a very cool automobile…  My love of TR6s is enhanced by this photo.  For starters I love the color!  I love the clean surface of green with the saddle interior and the snap of those red-line tires.  Like a drive on a crisp autumn morning this TR6 has it all!

I did some playing with the sharpening tool in Adobe Elements – to the point where I think you could put your fingers into the tread of the tires.

Week’s Work

with 4 comments

Over the past couple of weeks a took a couple hundred photos, but didn’t have much time to work with them,  post-processing and so on.  Next week proves to just as busy, I can’t seem to breath Monday thru Friday.  Living for the weekends here!  I’m in one of those situations where I can’t relax.  I have a pile of books I want to read, but I can’t relax enough to read even five pages.  I have three high-profile projects, and I have to keep my wits about me.  I wish I could retire, but that’s just not in the cards right now.

1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk

with 3 comments

This Golden Hawk was in terrific shape. Beautifully restored (I think). For me its hard to determine if some of the car went through major restoration – some of them looked as though they just rolled off the retro assembly line. Enjoy.

1948 Lincoln – Big Iron

with 3 comments

When I saw this car, I was amazed at how ‘big’ it was… it just seemed huge to me. Nice car though, and very luxurious. I imaged that a female – 1940s movie star rode around in this. (Turner Classic Movies). Hope you like it. I did a smidgen of photo magic.. but not much.
