Outstanding capture. I love the B & W effect. #4465469

Sherry K. Adkins 7/2/2007 3:10:45 PM

Thank you, Louise and Barbara. Your nice comments really are appreciated. I like this image, but I wasn't sure anyone else would. Thanks again! #4467153

I like it Sherry, it's on it's side because the running gear, axels, drive shaft have been taken off. #4467850

Sherry K. Adkins 7/2/2007 8:23:46 PM

Oh...... well, Greg, you know me, I don't know that much about the cars. I just like to shoot them. I am trying to learn more about them, though. #4467944

Wonderful, wonderful! I love this image. It is dramatic. Says alot. Nice work, Sherry. By the way, I found this on Editor's First Picks! #4485554

Sherry K. Adkins 7/8/2007 2:29:05 PM

Thank you, Lorri for the nice comment on this image. It is quite dramatic. The day we shot was very stormy so I guess it fits the weather conditions that day. Thanks for telling me you saw it in Editor's Picks. I didn't know it was there. #4485701

Sherry, great B&W and the effects are perfect! Strange they left it on its side, but I will take Greg's word for it why. #4490776

Carol Teal 7/9/2007 9:28:38 PM

I forgot to mention...I thought maybe because it's a FORD! LOL (My hubby would kill me...he is a Ford guy and works at a Ford dealership!) I have always owned Chevys or Pontiacs! #4490783

Sherry K. Adkins 7/9/2007 10:09:52 PM

Hi Carol. Thanks for the comments on this image. Greg has shot at this location many times and he told me that the car had been turned on it's side and those parts stripped. I love the old cars and trucks, but don't know much about the parts, models and years. I'm trying to learn more about them. In fact, I didn't make up this name. 'Fordomatic' is on the car. I had never heard that name before. #4490825

Sue L. Cullumber 7/11/2007 5:44:40 PM

Sherry - very cool pic! Love the BW and effects you gave it! #4498265

Sherry K. Adkins 7/11/2007 5:57:14 PM

Thank you Sue. I appreciate your nice comments on this image. #4498303

Carol Teal 7/11/2007 6:20:26 PM

Sherry, I have never heard of Fordomatic either! I will have to show my hubby and ask him if he has. #4498345

Sherry K. Adkins 7/11/2007 8:06:25 PM

Hi Carol, the name Fordomatic is on the right side of the trunk. My husband said it is from a '52 to '56 model, but not sure exactly. I'm attaching a pic. of the name. #4498686

Things that make you go "Hmmm" :-) I love this! #4573602

Sherry K. Adkins 7/29/2007 11:07:06 AM

Thank you Jill for your nice comment on this image. I wondered why it was on it's side, but Greg explained it's this way because it's been stripped. See his post above. I think it's much more interesting like this. #4574928

Description

1/100 f3.5 ISO 800. Had to boost the settings because of the approaching storm and it was getting dark. Played around in Photoshop to achieve this look. I don't have any idea why this car was on it's side like this......
