I started shooting chromes this summer, using the reliability of AE on the Bessa, I could affordably shoot street, the way I like, without worrying about exposure malfunctions. Prefocussed on a spot on the ground when I saw this to die for hotness gliding down the street and sliced just at the right moment between the two red cars.

I had been shooting for just primary colors; two primaries complimenting eachother in the frame -hard to live with the slf control when you shoot everything that moves as policy.

Shot using the fantastic Nokton 50mm f1.5. This is Kodak E100 GX. Its been a great many years since I have had the chance to shoot chromes, so now that I am again I am trying everything on the market, and everything is better then it was 20 years ago.

Shooting chrome and see it on a light box or projected is so vastly compromised when you scan and make as a web friendly image........

Thanks for all the comments, you make me feel strong.

    Great shot! The color composition (namely, red) and contrast really make this one stand out! Well done!

    I like this a lot. It may be my imagination but the chromes I shoot look better than anything else, even on the computer screen, let alone on a light box.
