Reflections on the paintwork and windscreen have come up sharp and clear.

Very nice, Jer. The selective focus is spot on! You've got a real affinity for photographing automobiles. I always enjoy them.

The 'beast' (?) appears to be quietly stalking the 'beauty'...when I look at this picture, I can hear the theme music to the movie Jaws.

Nice bokeh effect and B+W is the right choice. Almost has a 1960's quality about it, does this picture, although I do know that the cars are modern.

Good to hear, my friend. I took this shot shortly after detailing the "beauty."

Hey, Les - your description is exactly what I was going for, but I didn't think of the "Jaws" theme, which fits perfectly! It hadn't occurred to me, but the shot does have that '60s feel - perhaps because I darkened the pic in PP to give the faux night look I like - which was often part of B-grade movies in the '50s and '60s.
