Round Rock Car Show

I caught the monthly Round Rock car show a couple of weeks back. Car shows are a tough draw during the dog days of Summer and attendance by enthusiasts can dwindle. Luckily, it wasn't too terribly hot in the mid morning when I stopped by and I was pleased to see some lovely classics. My photographic companion was my trusty Fujifilm X100F. I had a fun time milling about in search of interesting cars and details.

It took me longer than usual to get around to posting some shots from the show. There was the fact that I was busy finishing up a summer class, along with keeping up with my regular job. I also spent a lot of time processing my files. While anyone who frequents my blog knows I love black and white, I do a good bit of color work on cars and bikes. I had a hard time choosing between the two this time around. First, I processed in all black and white. Then it was all color after playing around with some different looks in Lightroom CC. I finally settled on a mixture, giving each image what I thought it needed. Sometimes the choice can be quite maddening.

I'll talk more about my evolving new workflow in Lightroom CC in another post. I've got some thoughts about that which are best left to a dedicated discussion. Suffice to say for now that working in Lightroom CC has me reevaluating how I capture and process my image files. All images from the car show were captured with the X100F's Classic Chrome simulation and processed for color or black and white in Lightroom CC.
