    Nothing much to do with autos (of which I know not that much, either) Mike. You can check out this thread or just go to the source directly.

    Here are a few more shots from the Airforce Museum:
    Cool shots, Mike! That looks like an interesting place to visit.

    More good examples - beginning to think I'm sort of brain dead or just plain lazy this month. Nothing I've seen really has clicked for me. Guess I need to chase it rather than having it plop at my feet :-)

    This was the closest I've come to the theme. Initially thought about calling it "desegregation?". I've gone by this beach bar too many times to count in the past 30 years (only in it once). Back then, it was a serious biker bar. However, life moves on. You probably would not have even seen a Japanese bike there 30 years ago, much less in front. Definitely not a scooter. Guess I'll take this as a sign of progress / tolerance (though there is still a certain distancing of the Milwaukee iron from the other two).

    Four more from the Dayton Airforce Museum:

    I did quite a bit of editing on this one (removing some support wires, some lights, and darkening above the plane to give it a night effect, etc)

    Obviously a wide angle lens but not wide enough for these tall rockets. I tried to see if the various functions in PS and LR
    would straighten them out but the results were not adequate (too much wide angle distortion I think). So now I am going to say the distortion was planned as is.

    I was dazzled by the intricate workings of this propeller engine. There was a sign right in front to the engine that is distracting so I went with a closer up view.

    The rocket shot is really nice, with contrast and perspective drama. With regards to the FOV, I would have suggested to take 2 portrait oriented shots and stitch them in post but the image as-is is still excellent.

    Also, good work on cleaning up the first picture. All in all, your visit to the museum produced a nice photographic record. Would like to see more

    Visited an automobile museum today to take some car shots. But at end couldn't resist the bokeh
    All taken with the a7 and Zeiss FE 55 1.8.

    Finally found something I liked yesterday. Nothing as quite as good as the other car, plane or transportation shots here, but still somewhat classic in it's own right.

    Awesome work folks!!!!!

    I really wished I had participated more. My lack of participation is generally the result of a new position at work. Since school started in late Aug., I have not had a single day where I could work at home. In contrast, when I just taught, I worked at home at least 4 days a week most weeks. Hopefully, my schedule clears up for my own sanity. While I love my work, I also love photography. It's such a calming and relaxing experience. I need it. This is my month to get back into it, darn it.

    Sean, I understand what you're going through, but I have no excuses. Basically just lazy and sick of the heat here, so I hadn't gone looking.
    Instead, mostly playing around with stuff I've already shot. This was experiment with photomatix tone mapping of single image.

    '37 Ford from a car show several months ago. Didn't have a wide angle lens with me and it was kind of tough to get shots I liked.
    Really liked this car, but composition on these is not great, so they were just sitting on HD. I liked the pop that the tone mapping added to what were originally somewhat flat shots.

    Seems like all participants here are professional Automobile Photographers . Awesome snaps by everyone . I guess participation is more important here . Few snaps from a road trip which I did recently.

ISO 800 worked better and 30 seconds was a bit to long I learned. I only had my car lights on for about 5 seconds or so. Next time I think I will do much better I feel, but I'm pretty happy with the results considering it's a first for me.

    Thanks for looking!

    Love the shot Jay. You may want to try just using your car lock a few times to make the light flash for a bit or you can just run by your car with a diffused flash light to make the lines of the car show in long exposure. Stars look good. Galaxy shot would make this photo kick it. There's an app I use called Star Walk that acts like a compass and will let you see through your phone where the Milky Way is even though the sky looks black. Great job.

    Lucille seems to be in her element here.

    I took a few photos of my motorcycle tonight.





    I'll have to take some more later.

    I'm having some issue transferring photos from my camera to my computer, I think it's a memory card issue ... It hasn't been working right since I went full on it. Reset the Camera, battery, computer, etc. : / I'll try again with another memory card. Until then, Camera straight to iPhone6 quality.

    Went to a car show for my first time ever Saturday. The cars were all parked fairly close together with most of them having their hoods up. I guess that is part of the show (to see the engine). I would have preferred hoods down for photos but that is the way it goes.

    Few shots from a car show in the park yesterday.

    '37 Ford - Love the fenders/headlights on these. Nice reflections in the front end.

    Finally got around to taking a picture of my Ducati, not just the headlights. It's a shame I don't usually have my camera on me when I'm doing longer distance traveling. I keep considering the small RX100-3. So I can pocket, ride, and go. Part of me feels defeat when I admit I want a glorified point and shoot though.
