Rolls-Royce classic cars - part 4

Posted by Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 29 July 2011 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

I am at an exhibition of classic Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars. Here, you see a vintage fish car mascot on the hood of a Bentley.

The winged “B” badge is the more familiar hood ornament on the Bentley. But I thought this chrome fish would make a nice catch!

that is really cool, Rolls Royce has the flying lady, Bentley has a fish.. (I only recently learned that they're both owned by the Volkswagen Group, along with Porsche, Volkswagen (of course), Audi, Bugatti and Lamborghini)

i have never seen one of these, rare-ish?

29 Jul 2011 9:00am

@peter.K: Yes, these are a bit of a mystery. They don't seem to be official Bentley mascots.

Fantastic shot - the detail is amazing.

This is what I was waiting for, just watched a lot of these radiator cap beauties go
up for auction in Paris and around here also lately. This one I have seen rarely and
you got a beautiful photo of it, the chased detail is astonishing !!~

Superb! Did you use a lasso and blur to enhance the DOF on this fish?

29 Jul 2011 2:47pm

@Helen: Thanks, Helen. I shot this in RAW so didn't do any processing in Photoshop, other than adjusting the exposure in the RAW editor.
