I was lucky enough yesterday to take photos of a completely restored 1949 Cadillac. This one is my favorite. I absolutely love this hood ornament. I did some work in camera raw and Photoshop, then I took it into OnOne Software’s ColorEfex program to maybe convert to black and white. I decided to go with their pinhole choice. I liked the way it makes the face stand out. I then went back into Photoshop and did some dodging on the face and also to get the eyes to stand out more. I hope you like it. Let me know!

I was out at the race track in Fontana last Saturday to take photos of the Austin Healey Association members and their cars. The turnout was low because of the rain and cold weather. But as you can tell from this photo, the ones who were there had a lot of fun! They were lined up on the grid getting ready to go out on the track for the first time. How exciting! The rest of the photos and more can be seen on my gallery. It was great using my Canon 7D. The next time though, I will rent a longer telephoto lens. I think that will make it more fun. I just needed to do a white balance adjustment on all the images. I need to work on that so my images will have the proper balance when taken.
