Classic Jaguar XK 140 by Celeste Mookherjee

Currently unavailable for purchase

I captured this classic red Jaguar XK 140 (mid-1950s vintage) at a car show held at my local botanical garden. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/8, 1/125 sec., ISO 100, morning sun, handheld) Here’s another photo of the same car.

    Love the pov and the gloss you’ve captured is wonderful, so fitting for a jaguar . . . .

  • Thanks, Teresa. This Jag was VERY well waxed and polished!

    Wow, you certainly captured the color and wonderful sheen of this fab car..I don’t know how you got the sheen so smooth with no blown out highlights .. even the back of the mirror.. great work, Celeste and perfect composition, as usual…

  • Thanks very much, Katherine. Yes it really is a fab car! But you already know what I will say about no blown highlights: the histogram is your friend. :) It also helped that it was morning light, and somewhat filtered through trees. Some specular highlights are pure white (notably the starburst highlights on the chrome rims of the headlamps), but that’s to be expected with shiny metal.

  • Thanks, Elaine. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had waxed this right before the show.

    Wow, what a fabulous looking car, beautiful colour and in tip top condition. Great capture.

  • This was (I thought) the prettiest of all the Jaguars at the show, and the very elderly gentleman who owns it was obviously super-proud of his baby. :) The finish on that car was amazing. Thanks again for visiting and leaving such a great comment!
