I took these photos today at a car show we had in my town. It was sunny no clouds so I shot most of them 1/2 to 1 stop under at f/18, hoping to catch the natural star burst of the sun, this seemed to work very well many of the cars were in the shade of trees so I think it integrated Cobra2.jpgOld.jpgRedCoupe.jpg56Ford.jpgBlue-Truck.jpgChevy.jpgCobra1.jpgChecking-it-out.jpginto the shot some what. well.

A great set, Otto.  Really, really nice.

I’m trying to understand what you did.
I’m assuming that these are all hand held, it was a bright sunlit day, and that you needed a small aperture for star bursts.
Is it that in order to avoid camera shake you shot one or two stops under to keep shutter speed reasonably fast?
Very sly… lol.  I’ve never tried this technique, but certainly will.

Beautiful shots.  Congratulations.

The last might be better presented on it’s own.

Nice set of pictures. I was also wandering about starbursts. Did you get them in the camera or added them in post? 
The last shoot is my favorite. It tells the story. Love the rustic look!

All the starbursts are natural no photoshoping I set my aperture at f/18 and shot at about 1/2 to 1 stop under, it worked out very well, I was hoping to pick up the bursts in all that chrome.

Thanks for the tip! I get a lot of starbursts shooting night shots and now I’m going to
remember the high f-stop for cars and other shiny stuff! Really nice pics and my vote
goes to the Cobra. 
Hope whoever owns the one in the last pic isn’t still making payments on it lol!
