#24 and I hope there will be more.

My single image for this week is a (gathered info from GOOGLE) 1969 Jaguar XKE. To set the stage, this image came about by me being nosy & snooping around. Saturday night, Sunday morning, there was an argument that started off in a local bar and made it's way out into the parking lot, where three people were stabbed and one died. While I was out early Sunday morning I discovered that the crime scene had been sealed off for several blocks. While I was making a turn out of a gas station this beautiful convertible jaguar went past me. Not really being a jaguar lover, but I do love classic cars, and while this photo is really nothing to write home about, I thought I would try and improve on my attempt. I'm posting the SOC original and my B&W conversion for comparison. Success. yes, no?

Thanks Frank !!! I wasn't sure if maybe I went too far with the crop.

Great catch, great crop, great conversion. A different brand of street image but terrific impact. Shows how you CAN make something out of nearly nothing. Keep on shooting Nothings and turning them into Somethings! Takes quick reflexes, good instincts, and skills to apply the framing and determine editing strategies after the fact. Street happens fast.

I am the odd man out here, Dave. I like the composition in the original image with the men looking in three different directions. A crop including the passenger would seem a more interesting story for me. And something other than grunge, I think, for a classic jag. I am not a classic car enthusiast, but both our sons are and they have educated me in the direction of enhancing the original of the classic. One opinion. Matt

That's my main reason for not deleting anything I have taken, Minnie. I always go back months and sometimes a couple of years only to discover something worth editing. Always thirsty for lemonade and once found I usually discover some are worth using in a composite. Thanks for the encouragement to keep shooting.

Thanks Steve !!! They're there, I'm sure. We all have them, (nothings) but sometimes hard to find.
