Re: A Few Classic Cars

These are excellent! Dare I ask how much more you get from Silkypix Pro vs SE?

Re: A Few Classic Cars

Ahhh.. the old Zephyr 6 !

My mom's favorite of the cars we had when I was young. My dad bought 2 and made a decent one out of the pair !

Nice pictures of nice cars - the modern stuff just doesn't cut it for me - the last decent car design was the Mini (not BMW!)

I was to exhibit at our local classic car show this weekend, but having only 1st, 3rd and 5th in the Land Rover gearbox prevented attendance in appropriate transport so I went down in something Japanese and reliable

Cars were parked a bit close for nice pictures and the ground was too wet for too much kneeling so I satisfied mysefl with some mascot and logo bagging

I liked the chrome with character look...





All processed by E-30 in camera jpg engine

Regards
Andy

Re: A Few Classic Cars

Cracking set of photos, good use of the low angle for style and to cut out any distracting backgrounds

Thank you Allan, I've never used the SE Version but I can tell you that the Dodge Slider in Pro ( known as fill light slider in others) is way better than in LR and CO6, also the curves tool has separate RGB channels unlike LR3 and CO6 Express both of which I use as well depending on the image.

Re: A Few Classic Cars

Thank you Chevvy and francois .

Thank you Andy and it was just as packed but LV and swivel screen meant no kneeling and low angle and composition cuts out clutter.

Thank you Steve and a man who knows the tricks.
