A True Classic by notbland A True Classic by notbland
1965 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray.
Savannah, Georgia. February 16, 2009.

And the angle this car deserves, without any distracting background. Like a fighter plane, for instance.

Great Shot !!!
I just stared to your gallery... What an Astonishing one!
I'm in love with this pic, though, I wonder if you mind if I use it as reference for a drawing ?
For sure, I'll give credit to your work as soon as it's done.
Cheers and keep doing such a good job.

C3 Convertiable, right? We have the same in our city, just it's cherry red and has black hood. :)

I thought it enhances it; makes you look at the car instead of the background.

I think we can all agree that to an extent, the fighter plane was an acceptable distraction. ;)

What can I say about this photo? It has everything that an excellent photo has. The angle of the car is dead on, down to a mathematical perfection. The color is vibrant, stands out, and commands your attention. The structure and build, the frame of the vehicle, serves as a beautiful anti-linear contrast to the trees behind it, and all of these elements combine to make yet another masterpiece. :)

When are we going to see you in some magazines, my friend? ;)

When I get motivated enough to apply to them, I suppose. =P

Thanks for that crit; you're one of a tiny handful of people on here that actually takes some time to write a decent comment. I appreciate that. :) And more often than not, you bring things to my attention that I didn't even notice.

The angle of the car is perfect here, but I'm really not diggin' the crop.. :/

Well, that's the frame that I captured; no post cropping was done. And I only took variations of this composition, so there's not many others that show more background. I liked the tight crop.

what about widescreen?
Reply
:iconnotbland:
notbland Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2009  Professional Photographer
Didn't take one in that format; they're all tight crops. Plus, I wanted to show off the details, and the widescreen format wouldn't have done it justice.

the crop of the shark III looks awesome, would work here too, i think, and you won't loose details...

Sadly, not with this one. The summer I plan to rig the cars of his I never got to.

Yeah; I've made the switch to my 70-200mm as my primary lens, accented with some from my 10-22. Shows the cars off in their true light better.
