Classic Car Show

Some classic, some modern, all at the NEC in Birmingham this past weekend. I'm not a fervent car enthusiast but I'm gracious enough to accept an invitation, and even more impressive than the cars themselves was the sheer magnitude and variety of them, filling 5 halls to the brim. The heaving masses swarming around the cars made it difficult to capture isolated shots so I employed a variety of techniques and processing to get these images. And the harsh spotlights and glistening sheen of the metal made the polarising filter largely ineffectual. But low angles made the vehicles look more dynamic and imposing, and individual anatomical details helped exclude people from the picture. I tried composing along geometric lines and shapes while emphasising the beauty of their designs. The images were processed to have a look that I felt conformed to their classic status and design, as well as to render any unwanted bystanders irrelevant. A great exhibition, but after nearly 6 hours of touring around it even my legs were getting tired. Highly recommended though.To capture all of these I used a variety of lenses; mostly the Panasonic 20mm F/1.7 but also the Olympuses 12-40mm and 60mm F/2.8, and the Samyang 7.5mm F/3.5 fish-eye. All mounted on the Olympus E-M5.
