    Default MPH Show 2008

    Went to the Annual MPH Motor show again hosted by the Top Gear presenters
    Once again, fighting with horrible yellow/orange lighting but all in all, I think I managed it well enough.


    There's quite a few pics in this thread and the rest can be viewed in my gallery here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    This belongs to Richard Hammond

    Spoiler:









    Slightly desaturated this one to given an older look





    Spoiler:

    The next two, I deliberately desaturated and tweaked to give an old 60's type look





    Back to colour again

    Thanks all.

    I'm gutted I didn't get more of the Mk1 Escort but they were closing the classic car part and I wanted to get some shots of the American stuff.

    I think there was more Mustangs there but we were really rushing at that point
    I do have a huge ass street rod that I was trying to balance the colour on. I still have the RAW file so I'll have a go and put it up

    Baron, they do the show every year so I'd recommend heading out next time.

    With regards to the colour. Oh yes those horrible orange lights really make a mess of shots at times however a bit of temperature reduction and orange reduction in Lightroom helped me bring back some of the more natural colour.

    Ooh, that old Mustang. Really like the first shot of the CCR. That is a cracking set of photos mate that give a little tingle downstairs.

    Great shots, the Porsche 356 is my all time favourite car. I'd love to see more if you have them. Shame they are £25k for just a replica.

    Yeah, I love that Porsche too. I got burned off by one coming home from holiday once. I was in my Vectra/Mondeo (forget which) and he just left me for dead, it's almost like he didn't want me looking at his pride and joy.
