oh thats a stunning picture
Super cool HDR with the rusted out car.
Thanks Matt! I cant help but to be a sucker for these beat up cars.
For some reason, this and two other sites won’t let me “like” posts. They ask for the username and password (other sites know I am logged into WordPress already), and then don’t accept it.
Anyway, I like the picture. I am a sucker for junkers adorning various fields.
Hmm, thats strange it wont let you like the post. But I agree, Im a sucker for them as well! Thanks for the comment!
Bet she was a beauty in her day! The sky really makes this shot in my opinion. Nice job 🙂
agree, the Sky is amazing
Thanks again 🙂
Beautiful rural trash shot.
There is another fondness of me, cars with weeds growing through. I don’t see that here but it’s a great photograph of the past nevertheless.
Joseph, you would have loved this in person then, the whole interior was just weeds! Well that and a good amount of dirt, haha. However the weeds blend in with the back drop of brush so it doesnt show through in the pic.
By the way love the cloudscape.
Thanks a lot 🙂
what an awesome photo! Red is my favorite color and I truly love old cars, you can see what a beauty it used to be.
I agree completely 🙂
Wonderful photo. Great composition.
I came across a Soviet-era Pobeda car in my neighborhood – it must have been a beauty in its day. There are several photos of it in this post: http://bassasblog.wordpress.com/2011/08/29/victory-2/
Its always great to run across old vehicles like this! Thanks for sharing your pics with us!
A triumph, isn’t it?
It is a Triumph.. A TR6 as confirmed by another comment below. Thanks Dave
What a coincidence – I have the same title in my post today….great minds think alike! Great shot!
Haha, thats to funny Stephen! Thanks
Great contrast with the sky!
Yea the sky was perfect for shooting yesterday! Thanks
she’s very pretty I’d go along with the guess for Triumph and even push my geeky cred into the risky zone by suggesting that it’s a TR6
You nailed it! Thanks
phew I knew I was still a geek but was brave and didn’t resort to google.
Haha, well Im glad to see your car geekyness still holds true inside you 🙂
Poor lady… Amazing shot! Thank you dear Nick, have a nice week, with my love, nia
Ah this is sad and beautiful.
I agree! Thanks for the comment 🙂
Amazing shot Nick…..and not what I expected when I saw this sitting in my in-box. Great cloudscape!
Im glad it was a pleasant surprise for you Alex 🙂 Thanks for your kind words
Great shot and love the photo work on it. But this lady needs to be restored!
I agree Michelle, she should be restored! Thanks for the kind comment 🙂
Haha thanks Liz
Thought it was a Triumph – but whats with the new shiny wheel covers?
Thats what threw me off at first too John. They are Lincoln wheels haha.
American wheels on a British Car – whatever next? We’ll be the 51st State…
Hahaha, this cracked me up John 🙂
Amazing and i must say this is one of my favourites 🙂
Thanks Filipe! Means a lot to me 🙂
Great capture – really nice composition.
Wow! Love the colours! 🙂
A really eye catching photo.
Love the blurry effect that you got on the clouds. Wonderful shot, and awesome colors. What a find!
Thanks Bella 🙂
That’s gorgeous. The dull beige of the grass and the winter trees offset by the red car and blue sky almost sends this into the realm of OpArt. I love it! 😀
Thanks Shez!! I always look forward to your comments 🙂
PS I also love the “pin-hole” effect in this photo. It adds a lot of depth and richness to it.
Im assuming your talking about the Vignette, which if thats the case thanks! I thought it added a bit of dimension to it as well 🙂
Absolutely. Vignette. My camera has a new tool built in that it calls the “pin-hole” effect. Vignette would have been a better name for it.
haha, thats right your using an olympus ep1 correct? How do you like it?
So far, I love it. Does everything my Canon does and the whole thing is lighter than my 150-300mm Sigma lens for the Canon. In addition, it films 1080i HD movies in stereo sound. An 8 GB Extreme SD card holds 2 hours of continuous film. While filming you can also snap still photos which it captures without losing a moment of film, so it beats my very nice Sony HD semi-pro video camera which can take 3 photos while filming. Also it is awesome in available light. So far, I have not even bothered to attach the flash and have been happy with the low light photos.
My trip to Colorado Springs over the weekend included 98 minutes of continuous filming plus 400 photos. I previewed things, deleted lots of photos, and retook others. The battery life was at least 5 hrs. It cost less than half of either my Canon body or my Sony. And does everything they do and things neither of them are capable of. It is a bargain.
With the 14-42 lens the PEN mimi E-PM1 it is only a tiny bit larger than my pocket Nikon. The Nikon takes a bit of time warming up and it takes fair video. The Nikon has it’s uses, but it not in the same category as any of the other three.
I would absolutely recommend it to a pro or a serious hobbiest. Find a place for it in your bag. You will love it!!
Yea, Ive been looking at the Pen series, however Im really liking the X-100 and may go that route when looking into micro 4/3’s
Great HDR Nick. Gotta sit and see your work 🙂
ooh that is a lovely shot! Thank you for stopping by my blog 🙂
Hey thank you Nicky
HDR works really well here…great framing and composition too!
Thanks again Jennifer 🙂
Nick you are a man after my own heart. Lady in Red is just perfect. When I travel I’m always looking for old cars, buildings, and equipment. I fell in love with the lady in red.
This is definitely one of my favorite finds Claude! Im the same way, my eyes are always scanning for interesting cars, planes, buildings as well 🙂
