Nice shots! Great PP. Did you do it in layers? What ever your process it sure is effective.

Hi Don

They are great, most impressed. Are you processing these RAW?

PP layers - just layer masks to improve figure ground, duplicate image layers to improve depth.

Raw - most yes, except for a few mistakes where still jpeg setting.

Pontiac - anything with the Indian head generally is a Pontiac.

Mine - no way, cameras and lenses are small time introductions to the money sink hole of vintage cars.

These are very good. Hope that you are printing them; they look like they should glow. Enough of these (maybe with a small picture of the cars themselves in the index) would make a neat little book.
Thanks for posting.
