The Good Times Car Show was held at Bancraft Park in Old Colorado City on Sunday, August 19, 2012. Hosted By Colorado Cruizers ~Rocky Mountain Mustangers ~ Southern ColoradoMopars ~ Modern Mopar Muscle Club of Southern Colorado. Up to 400 Mustangs, Muscle cars, Hot Rods and Classic cars.
I have been photographing local car shows for the past couple of years. This is the second year I photograph the good times car show and these guys sure picked the right weekend. The weather again was a beautiful 65° and not a cloud in the sky. A perfect day for a car show. I am always impressed with the care and detail the goes into the restoration of these classic cars. Talking with the owners of these cars is interesting. It’s fun to hear the stories of where they found these cars and how they restore them. You can really see the pride they have in their vehicles.

Now for the photography. The photographs in the gallery below were shot and processed for HDR or High Dynamic Range photography. Each photograph is actually nine photographs. Each shot at the same f-stop and all shot at different shutter speeds then combined with the HDR program called photomatix Pro 4. The program takes the best exposed part of each photograph and combines them to give you more detail in the highlights and shadows and has the ability to also create some pretty cool special effects like the surreal look you may see in some of the photographs in this gallery.
