post-32067-143142250654_thumb.jpg I hope I got this right. Not quite as classy (yet) as most of the others, but this one is in its first sunlight in 50 years. Enjoy. Maybe we will have some nicer ones before the snow arrives.

Post # 102, well, they don't come much nicer than those pic's.

Buick has REALLY gotten their act to together. They are, "WITH THE PROGRAM".

post-30591-143142252093_thumb.jpgThought I would try the twist of not colorful leaves but certainly fall color - these were taken from my front yard. My only regret was there was no sun to make the Flame Orange POP. I added a sunny day photo to show the difference the sun can make.

Sometimes it is really hard to get the sun and the car out both at the same time. Here's a fall day when it came together:

That's Lake Ontario to the north. imagine where the sun had to be to make that shadow!

John - that car is extremely classy...Buicks from the early / mid 30s sure had some great styling.

The comments about sun are interesting. I understand Keith's point about some colours and the impact that lighting has on them. At a local car club meeting years ago (over 15), we had an automotive photographer speak. He took shots as close to dawn or dusk as he could - low light eliminates the glare that will come from shiny surfaces. I like to do that or photograph on overcast days to eliminate the extra shine. I think it generally makes for a better photo, although one isn't always entirely happy with how the colours look.

Keith, that is a great location! And just the right composition too. The Centurion looks like it's ready to ride in those pictures.

And that Lake Ontario photo is superb Bernie. I just love that lake from where you are.

Snapped a few quick shots of my new daily driver -- 1996 Buick Riviera -- yesterday, with a bit of fall foliage visible in the background.

Since Halloween is tomorrow I guess autumn should have a jack o lantern:

At the expense of a brand X car, of course.
