The story behind the image
Classic cars! I like them, even if they are chrome-laden, gasoline-guzzling monsters that do not have the slightest chance to get a parking lot (in your typical German city.)
Today I visited the awesome Deutsches Museum Verkehrszentrum – a museum presenting the world of land-bound moving objects, i.e. trains, bikes, motorbikes, buses, and – of course! – cars. You’ll get to see the entire history of cars, from the early beginnings to future concepts. They even have a horse-drawn coach simulator that you can enter and experience a ride from Munich to Augsburg! Wow.
A beautiful Cadillac Series 62 Sedan is also part of the exhibition, and I could not resist to take a photo of its left rear wing. I brought my EOS M6 Mark II with the bed-and-butter EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens. I opened the aperture to f/2.8 and focused on the rocket-like rear indicators. The result: a stunning bokeh and realistic colors that did not require a lot of editing.
