My wife and I were trying to find some things to take pictures of that would look old. I asked around with some of the old timers in town. They said that the old Henson place would be a good plave to start. That car has sat there since 1976. If you look real close you can see the license plate. The date it 1975. I had so many differant pictures of this car and its' buddy the houese I didn't know what to pick. This seemd to have the most content for what we can post. I wish we could post the high res photos, because then yuou could zoom in and see the plate and some of the other details. If anyone would like to see some of the other pics I took at this location let me know. I would love to share them.

This shot screams old, so well done there. I'm not sure why you chose to cut the right bumper from the framing, but I think maybe it should be included.

Nice use of b&w. 6 sjgleah

I like this but find the top half of the frame adds nothing (for me) and I'd look at what it's like cropped into a squarer shape, losing some of the top.

Great shot of old. A nice combo shot with the car and house. Nice detail, nice shadows. I also like the position of the subjects, because the car leads your eyes back to the house.

Great technical photo. Good subject. Excellent depiction of theme.

good composition, nice title (to boot)... has depth. i.e. not just a photo of an old car. Tells a bit more story. Good work.

Old and dusty. This would be grand-prize winner of the dusty catagory.

nope, and nobody has been home in a while i think. nice find. what color was the car? would this have looked good in color, or maybe some color? i would like to see a little more contrast here. also, the title doesn't match the photo, the photo is really about the car, the title about the house in the background. -- gr8photos (5)

this is neat :) I like the old feel here quite a bit... I believe that the exposure may be a little hot... maybe a touch more contrast or a small decrease in brightness would help out with that some :) - jmsetzler

To me, an horizontal orientation would look better.

This is a great shot. Lots of atmosphere, technically great and fits the challenge well. (9)

Goes great with them and the black & white is perfect.

great subject and use of greyscale
08/07/2002 07:35:00 AM
Lots of car photos in this comp. but I like this one more than others. Very eye appealing.
08/06/2002 09:15:00 PM
effective, b/w is actually well used here :)
08/06/2002 05:28:00 PM
Good composition, and I like the vertical framing. Black and white works well here. karmat

This kind of works in b&w but it would be interesting to see it in color. While the car is mostly a darker shade of grey than the surrounding grasses they are kind of close. It does help that the house is mostly in shadow though and also that there are some shadow areas on the car itself.

the b&w kills this picture
08/05/2002 04:19:00 PM
I like this very much, and love the b&w. I find the composition to be very appealing. lhall

Beautiful shot! This is exactly what I would have loved to have found for this challenge. Good job!
