Nice shot Barry. The colors in the shot really look nice. Too bad the fence is in the backgroud, sometimes it seems like car show organizeres go out of their way to foil photographers! But great shot even with.

Thanks Larry!

I don't think I even noticed the fence when I took the shot because I was thinking I would end up cropping down to just the grill of this car in the final version of the photo. When I noticed I could see the reflection of the car's sides in the paint of the cars on either side though I decided to leave it wide.
