At a steam fair this detail of a classic car caught my eye with the raindrops beading on the polished metal. Oersonally I liked the reflection of the red umbrella but other views may differ! It was a very wet and dull day.

This is nice! I hardly ever use my 40-150 lens anymore, but this shot reminds me of what a nice lens it is - very sharp detail, good colors, and shallow enough DOF to isolate your subject. I noticed the red umbrella before I read your description, and I liked it. I think that it helps tell the story of the day.

Very well done, your equipment works perfect and the photographer too!
Black, chrome and wet: very nice.
Well done.
