Cord convertible, I mean. Shot on 35mm Kodak 800 ISO film and converted to BW.

Oh, are you shooting COLOR negative film?
Regardless, this is a fantastic image, Kenny- from A to Z!
The only strong reflection is of another classic car to the right. And that's just fine.
And the inclusion of the old Auburn really adds to the overall impression.
PLUS you found the perfect 3/4 angle spot without a lot of interfering crap in the way.
Delicious processing.
The only thing that could be better would be if I shot this .
Congrats- well done.

Thank you both. I shoot both b&w and color, Charlie. Sorta as the spirit moves me. This one just looked better in b&w, I thought. But, in the interest of fairness, I'll post the color and you can judge.

Oh my, that's a lovely one, Peter! Don't mind at all. That bad, huh Tom? Truth be told, not a whole ot of processing on the conversion. A little unsharp mask. When I do my job, the Minolta X700 is still a wonderful camera.

Kenny - since I shoot and process only B&W IR with a converted camera, my eyes have become trained (unconsciously, it seems) to not just see but judge the world in these terms.

and your B&W are so good, anything else (to my eyes) is second rate.
love your cars . . .
regards, tom

Well, thank you kindly, Tom. High praise, indeed. I'm trying to teach myself to 'see better' in B&W.

Kenny,
Occasionally it happens... and I agree with Tom .
I tried some fiddling with the color version, and the combination of artificial light, natural light, and your film's characteristics create all kinds of problems.
B&W seems to be THE way to go here.

Put another way, less is more. Color, that is.

Now that I think about it, I seem to have better luck shooting color film and converting to B&W than shooting Tmax or TriX. Go figure.
