Or there abouts. Taken at this year's carshow in town. This was early,early in the morning before the crowds and the first cars were trickling into the show site. These two stopped in front of the library and I could not pass up a shot of them minus people. Do I have too much road in the frame? Anything I could do extra as far a processing to make it better? I am not very proficient at post work and any hints-tips would be appreciated.

Hm.. I probably would have gone with more of a sepia treatment. :D But I wasn't even around then so I couldn't tell you how the photos looked back then.

Sepia or maybe leave 20% or so of the color in there.

You could take a bit off the bottom.
Good shot. I hope you took more than one?

Thanks! I might try that out.

Thanks! Should the color be the backround or vice-versa? Does that make a difference?

I had to go back and check. I did take more than one, but not more than two of these in combo. Of the two the B/W hid some of the fade in the Thunderbirds paint better and I like the feeling of the shot much better in B/W.

And being looked at in 1958...

It wouldn't turn Sepia for another 30 years or so... ;)
