Rolls-Royce classic cars - part 2

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 27 July 2011 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Plenty of luxurious leather at the Rolls-Royce classic car show!

About 160 Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars were on display. These ranged from the rare Silver Ghosts to more recent models.

BMW now owns the Rolls-Royce brand.

>BMW now owns the Rolls-Royce brand.

I know, it's a shame, isn't it? ;)

Great British cars are now owned by the Germans, Indians and Chinese.

27 Jul 2011 9:26am

@London Caller: Thanks, LC. Yes, and I think VW lost out in the bidding war for R-R but VW do own Bentley.

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

I can smell the leather and old wood from here!

BMW own Rolls-Royce -- is nothing sacred! I'm not into car photos, stephen, unless you can show me an excellent abstract colourful graphic image...great detail btw. ^)^

27 Jul 2011 9:54am

@janina: Thanks, Janina. I can promise you I will have some more abstract images. This series has a mix of wide angle and macro shots. I used my Tamron 90mm lens for close ups of hood mascots such as the "Spirit of Ecstasy". The Tamron lens also gives a lovely bokeh.

Priscilla from Amsterdam, Netherlands

Such big shiny cars they are. I see a brilliant red body behind this car, did you capture that one? Another aside - the light in Australia, there is nothing like it.

27 Jul 2011 10:46am

@Priscilla: Thanks, Priscilla. Sorry, I missed getting a shot of the bright red car in the background here. However, I do have shots of some other red Rolls.

Great POV...beautiful interior.

27 Jul 2011 11:54am


Just look at that sumptuous interior, from the days when everything was hand finished by real hands belonging to a real person at the factory..... erm, you catch my drift! I can smell the connolly hide. That's a great view back over the gathering of beautiful vehicles. Great frame, Stephen.

What a gorgeous interior - I'd be tempted to hop in and bask in the luxuriosness. :-) Beautifully shot, Stephen!

Williams from East LaHave, Nova Scotia, Canada

Great composition to give a sense of the breadth of the event. Wonder how the Brits feel about one of their hallmark companies being owned by the Germans?

Beautiful perspectiive and a brilliant idea, Stephen, for capturing all the cars in one shot! Marvelous! They are all beautiful...I must say, it has to be a hard pill to swallow, having the Rolls owned by a company from another country...Excellent images though!

A lot of well-invested cash parked out there. The whole concept of a Rolls Royce is a fascinating path to follow, really.
