Location: Festa Italia, Dane County Fairgrounds, Madison, WI

Madison’s annual Festa Italia had a car show that year, including Ferrari and Lamborghini. But I loved this fiery classic American convertible. Because of barriers and the crowd, it was hard to photograph, so I concentrated on the tail-end.

A few years later, I saw a CD (moldy oldies classics from the 50-60s) cover that looked exactly like this, so I must have done a pretty good job!

    Cool shot of the detail Auntie – clean and shiny.

  • Thanks Bigcity! I’m pretty amazed at how nice it turned out. I adjusted the color a little to make it more cherry/blue red than tomato/orange red. Surprisingly, I just saw almost an exact photo as this on a CD cover just yesterday!

    Fantastic shot, nicely framed/cropped(?), so iconic.

  • Cropped w/ the camera. I though that I had gotten it a little too tight. Thanks for favoriting.

    No, I think it’s cropped just right, more or less equai-distant from each side, with the ‘ziz-zag’ formed by the chrome detail running central down the image. I know what you mean, I often deliberate over issues of composition, but it’s good when you get it right and it works visually.

    Well done. Not too tight cropping at all, I reckon it’s 100% like this.
