This one is for Craig, who reminded me of his own love for cars after I dedicated my previous shot to John C. This is a detail from another car in the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum at Graceland Mansion, Memphis TN. Elvis' Pink Cadillac is probably his single most famous vehicle, and has served, since he used it, as a symbol for the cool excess of rock and roll. Oddly, though, the most famous song using the term 'Pink Cadillac' is by Bruce Springsteen.

A fine close-up shot of detail of Elvis's Pink Cadillac which I am sure Craig will enjoy. It also inspires me to try to dig out some more car pictures. Trouble is, of course, that I generally find that pictures of interesting "boy toys" like cars, steam engines and so on are not generally well appreciated on TE.
Anyway, this is an excellent shot with which my only slight quibble is that (at least on my monitor) it does not look pink but, rather, orange. But the light, the contrast, the exposure and the exquisite sharpness are all perfect.
A good note too.

haha...i JUST finished viewing John's new Car photo! and now i see THIS one! its like double-mint speramint gum! lol
and to top it all off....my ALL TIME favorite artist "the boss" included in the note...his version of Pink Cadillac is a 10 out of 10!
love the cut and crop of the side panel, and using the door hinge to create a strong vertical.
thanks for the Dedication :)

nice the close up view of the pink Cadillac that in combination with the vertical and horizontal lines create a beautiful optical effect.

This is one of the most impressive cars (Cadillac) out of the fifties.
Your picture became very well taken with high quality made.
Outstanding colours and wonderful composition.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

This is a very likeable composition. It's plain but smart and elegant and very pink. You have used the lines and the "signature" very well to create a kind of "dynamic balance".

A superb artistic detail of the well known logo. To be honest, I'll never buy such a huge car, I love my new sport Honda, but I must admit the legend behind your image. Well taken.

un nome una garanzia, un particolare ben fotografato, originale nel taglio e nella proposta, come il colore della vettura.

Instantly recognizable logo, what a great approach to this photo! Although it does appear more orange colored on my monitor, it certainly doesn't take away from the fact that this is an awesome shot. Smart composition to let the minimal detail speak for itself, it's the perfect compliment for a Caddy....or is it Caddie?? Either way, this is a really neat picture, it's smooth and clean with nothing to detract from the effectiveness of its namesake. Great concept and execution, very well done! Have a nice Sunday.

Simple, but really nice! You framed the detail of this famous car very well. I like the graphism a lot! A very simple detail that worked really well!

Lovely closeup work and achieving something artistic photographcally. A well known brandname nicely cropped and a super eye catching in spectacular details, neat and razor sharp rendering an extremely appealing effect. The fiery stinging color works a treat here, Well done.

I like the graphic photos which you have posted recently. You seem to excel in that type of art !
Here, I like the color. Only a cadillac could have such a color ! What's more "The King's cadillac" !
Excellent close-up on the stylish logo, and perfect management of color and sharpness.
