Classic Cars 3

This wonderful classic Cadillac caught my eye for several reasons and this is translated into my image. The brilliant red paint with so much shine is hard to resist. The angle I chose to shoot along the huge back fin gives more dynamics to the stationary vehicle. However, I chose this image today because of "The Background". Those classic Gas Pumps form an interesting background to this image. Often photographers are so excited by the main subject in the frame that they forget about what is in the background that may spoil the image to some degree. While I was making this image there were many other people walking around the car...I had to wait for them to move out of my field of view. I used my tripod when I made all three of these images since I was indoors with not enough light for the small f-stop that I chose for maximum depth of field. So, I set up and waited for a clean shot of the vehicle with no distracting elements in the frame.
The point here is...go to an interesting location, be prepared with tripod and camera, be patient, and watch your background and surroundings for any distractions that may interfere with your image.
