This image was hardened for contrast and to fill the shadows, then smoothed to soften the curves on what is still the sexiest car on the road. Shot at the British Car show in San Juan Bautista, California.

I’ll shoot anything that catches my eye, but I love it when somebody says “I never looked at it that way before” or even just a little “ooooh”. If I can make you stop and say “hmm”, that’s the best. I normally use minimal processing; a little bump in color and/or contrast, maybe a little cropping. But sometimes I just can’t resist the urge to play with an image.

    Very cool Bob. I like how you have presented it but dont recognise the car :)

  • Thanks Judi. The car is more commonly known here in the US as XKE; not sure about Oz. The proper term though is XK E-Type. I bet you would recognize the convertible version though. Much more popular than the coupe.

    How cool Bob!!! If you happen to ever drive it, and are in the Knoxville, TN area, reserve the passenger seat for me, lol!

  • Thanks Bob, unfortunately it’s not mine. I missed my shot at an E-Type back in 76 when I could have bought one for $2000. And I haven’t been in TN in nearly 30 years. I do want to make a pilgrimage to Memphis though.

    That’s interesting Bob, nearly 30 yrs ago I was in California, at Camp Pendleton, life’s funny that way, lol!

  • I was at Fort Campbell, but lived in Clarkesville. So, I take it you were a jarhead. ;>)
