This is my good mate’s Volvo 740 Turbo HP which is probably the best 740 in Tasmania, and if not then very very close…
We gave it a bit of a polish up and took it to the Old Beach car show in Hobart which was held on the 13th of February 2011.
It drew the usual comments of “what’s a Volvo doing here” but it got many more comments on how clean and tidy it was and we were about to leave when a show official came by to put a notice on the windscreen to attend the prizegiving…
It won the trophy for best car 1988-1997, which of course made our entire weekend!
Well worth the extra time we spent polishing the inside of the engine bay and the wheels and all the little bits…
Taken on February 13th 2011 using my beloved Rolleicord V which is fitted with a Schneider-Kreutznach Xenar 80/3.5 lens
Shot on Kodak Ektar 100 film
Metered with a Sekonic selenium handheld meter.
Scanned with an Epson V700 flatbed scanner
Adjustments to levels and contrast etc in Photoshop CS3 and cropped to exclude distracting people in the edge of shot.
Camera was mounted on an Inca tripod.
shutter speed and aperture forgotten, but it was not stopped right down nor was it right open. Shutter speed was towards the higher end of the range.
