I am not fan of the cars, but I have to admit that some old ones make me dream. Trade marks as Triumph, MG, Austin Healey, Morgan send me back to the sixties, with the roadsters having a long bonnet and participating to the Monte Carlo rallye.
Exhibition of around 12 old cars near my house 2 years ago.

Hello Claude, a nice close-up here, this must be a very expensive car. Very well highlighted, with a soft approach.

je n'aime pas non plus spécialement les voitures, et pourtant, comme toi,je trouve que ces vieux modèles ont un charme que n'ont plus nos nouvelles voitures.
J'aime le cadrage de te photo montrant la calandre en diagonale,ressortant sur un beau fond noir.Très bien fait!

A classis shot of the front end of a classic marque. Morgan cars are truly timeless and this one could have been built 20 years or 20 days ago because Morgan are still hand built and retain the same styling they have always had.

Une voiture remarquable qui tient la vedette dans plusieurs romans policiers en provenance de l'Angleterre et avec raison. Beaucoup de gueule et un beau cadrage.

Elle a de la gueule la Morgan dans ce cadrage serré. Très bien fait!

It is really interesting to see "faces" on cars.
I like the old ones more than the modern cars, because they resemble much humbler, quieter and prettier faces compared to the ambituosly wild shark/eagle/snake faces of modern ones.
When i look again, i can even see a little smile on the face :)
Best wishes for 2012

A good shot of a famous classic and what a rare find here! a vintage in simple glossy black that brings back old memories of yester years. Very nice perspective and pp work but the silver colored bumper and head lamps really catches the eyes creating a stunning contrast. Indeed a proud lady looks so mellowed but still going strong and real charming. The visual effect is further enhanced by the specks of bright vivid reds and orange. You have good eyes, a well spotted opportunity well taken and executed.

even though its black, it totally caught my attention right away in the thumbnail gallery.
love the black and chrome contrasts, and the smooth feel of the scene.
