A couple of years ago I put together a diorama with the premise of a car show at Wally's Shell Service Station.

The premise: Wally has a bit of property across the road from his service station just outside of town. Every year he sponsor's different themed car shows throughout the summer months. This year was a show dedicated to Chrysler & Imperial cars only. 

The reality: I brought a bunch of models out for the show on a very hot & sunny day. I setup under the edge of a pop-up canopy hoping for some shadow for the shoot, some shade for me and protection for both. Unfortunately, I was never really thrilled with most of the photos, so they've never seen the light of day. At some point, I will go through what I have and see what I can do with them.

Yesterday's post had me looking for photos of the other two Chrysler models I mentioned in that post. Now the Newport Hardtop has a new set waiting for processing that was taken the same day as yesterday's Chryslers. The New Yorker convertible seems to have missed a camera date except for these shots from Wally's Day.

Very nice ! You are much too critical of your images .... these are fine shots. Now that's a car show and a superb Chrysler Corp pow-wow.

I agree with Mike....I would have zero basis for any constructive criticism....it's an excellent set of photos/layout/lighting/models.
