Polished

Polished. Taken at the local and very good annual Classic Car Show, where most of the cars on display are very lovingly cared for. Even so I spent quite a long time at 100% in Photoshop making sure there was not a speck of dust on the bit of car in my image. And cleaning out the traces of polish and other stuff from the edges of the chrome strip – the image really does need to be perfectly clean to give the liquid feel of serious waxing! A strong diagonal, obviously, and carefully positioned in shooting to run exactly from corner to corner. I think the car was a TVR.

Technical: NIKON D300, f=150.0 mm, ISO400, 1/1250 sec @ f6.3
