Classic Car shots with the 16-50mm F2.8 and a77ii

Went to a classic car cruise-in this morning. It was pretty cloudy, which delivered some very nice subdued light.  I'm still learning how to shoot cars, but I like a few of the images that I got this morning, so I thought I'd share.

Most challenging to me was getting the right depth of field. And second, learning to get my crop correct in the camera. I also felt a little rushed for a few because I wasn't totally comfortable photographing other people's cars. I would have asked the owners, but in most cases, they weren't around.

Comments, suggestions welcome.  thanks.. Mike

Probably my favorite of the day.

I think next time, I'll put the focus on the closest dial. oh well.

The first shot of the day.
