    I love this Dale. Funny I posted one today of a 56 Ford. How'd you do this? I'm still not to sure what I did to get my results. I love the effects you used. :)

Thank you Mary. I loved your Ford and I'd dropped you a line about the Vatican Ceiling. Did you receive that? If you have time drop me an email and we can compare techniques. It's a little long to go into detail here.

Thanks Bonnie. I'd like to make a poster of this if only I knew what it was. I'm lousy identifying cars. By the way I really liked your "Shades" image in your gallery. I've tried to achieve that look but with little success.

Thank you Jodi. I had so much fun going through your gallery. I love the way you get up close and personal in your shots. You really do cut to the chase and with such vivid colors too.

A real inspiration to those of us that are "macro challenged" Something my friend in Canada is trying to correct, but he has his job cut out for him.

Thanks Mary. I had no doubts about your '56 getting an EP. By the way, I was experimenting last night with some new techniques that show some promise. Works really well on some images and lousy on others. If you want to do some experimenting, email me and I'll tell what I've tried.

Wow!!! Way to go Dale.The little bit of color in the flags, headlight and license is just perfect. The highlight glints add great spark to the composition.

Congratulations.

Thank you Patrick and congratulations to you on your "coffee filter" award. Missed that contest and would have missed guessing right as well. You're so good at those type images. I'm impressed,...... again.

WOW! Dale, this is so awesome! I loved the 'car in the clouds' but this is really spectacular! You have a beautiful, crisp, clean capture with wonderful 'touches' of reflection in just the right places. The little bit of color makes this perfect!

Congratulations Dale! You are REALLY good at this!

Thank you Janice. I had a time frame when I was almost obsessed with auto images and did quite a few. About time for another car show, if I can find one. It was fun to work on.

Fine work Dale. I recall this arc of a car (Packard) vividly as a kid. You have some interesting effects here in your layering that allow me to concentrate on the features of the car alone and not be distracted by its surroundings. Congratulations on your Finalist award, it is certainly well deserving of it.

Thanks a lot Dick. This was a fun project. I have been trying to learn techniques with PhotoShop Elements and some of my car shots turned out to be a good training ground.

I like the cars 'cause I can get up close and personal. Don't have the lens power and patience to get those long distance bird and plane shots that you are so expert at. By the way, where were most of the heron shots done?
