I think the other old car buff may have missed the suicide doors and running boards. The long wheelbase limo chassis is the only one with doors like that. Your car also has side trim that continues onto the hood. Here is the 1947 series 62 sedan for comparison:



Here is a highly modified 1949 series 75 limo that is similar to the car in your picture:




Steve
is this related to that?

Just got back from a trip to Yosemite. I'm sure this very shot has been taken a million times by a million other people ( most I'm sure did a much better job than me) , but it isn't easy getting a shot that hasn't been done before in a place like Yosemite. Especially when you are limited to staying close to the roads.

But still it's your shot and a beauty. I've never been there. Is it crowed this time of year?

Colton, while that may be a well-photographed view, I wouldn't put yours far from the very best (i.e. Ansel Adams level): your photo gets a lot of subtle shading and toning, and detail, in a very natural and copacetic manner. And like Tuco says, it is yours!

Tuco...Ya gotta go! There is a reason why Ansel Adams did so much of his best work there. Great subject material is half of what makes great photos.

It is crowded in the summer, but not bad in the other three seasons. Spring brings peak flow in the waterfalls with lush green and flowering trees in the valley. Fall has less water in the streams, but far less people and fall color. Winter brings limited access and dramatic snowy cliffs and such.

Here is a link to a scan from one of my old slides taken at Memorial Day about a decade ago:

Love Honeyman Park. Thanks for sharing!

I have fond memories from about a decade ago sitting at the top of one of those dunes with a group of close friends at night by the light of a full moon. It was incredible.

(Thinking to himself that the full moon is next week and that Honeyman is only a few hours drive away...)

Cheers,

Thanks, I didn't go as hog-wild this time. I just darken the sky more through curves.

Thanks Tuco. Yes you really should go if you have the chance. It is crowded this time of year, especially when the water falls are running strong.

Thank you for the wonderful comment Nesster, it is very encouraging. I don't know about "Ansel Adams level" but it is wonderful to be compared to one of the greats.

Beautiful macro shots, i like them !
Thanks a lot. I would not quite qualified them as macro (for the purists) but I like close-ups like that from time to time.
And I think that Perceptol did a good job.

Cheers,

Luc
