Behind the Shot #18

Dick Van Dyke-2aDick Van Dyke-2a

Rockford, IL... June 2012 >> As my "Wheels" gallery on this site indicates, I enjoy shooting classic cars. A lot. This beauty was at one of many car shows I've attended with the sole purpose of capturing these amazing machines for my own enjoyment #1, and others' enjoyment #2. This was one of the first shots that I used HDR processing to get that "pop" effect. I have other versions of this shot straight, and in black and white, but I like this one the best. I call it "Dick Van Dyke" for no other reason except that it reminded me of a car from that era that Rob Petrie himself may have had in his driveway...
