Yes I debated taking out the car but decided it was how it was so left it there albeit with clarity, contrast and saturation decreased. Thank you :-)

LornaSmithPhotography PRO+
LornaSmithPhotography July 27, 2015
Thank you. I actually took two shots with one focused on the man and one on the lady. It was such shallow depth of field I decided I had to do a composite to get both the people in focus. This left the remainder of the photo nicely soft and it provided the framing.

This photo has an arresting quality, I keep going back for another look.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this at the local agricultural show in my town Wairoa, NewZealand.
Time
It was the end of a very hot afternoon, I'd been carrying some heavy camera equipment around in the blazing sun and was almost ready to pack up (with exhaustion) but I spotted this couple. Cool as you like, doing laps around the parking area - showing off their classic car and their classic looks.
Lighting
I took a few different shots as they moved past and didn't have time to change any setting so I has a very shallow depth of field which was great for the light but not so good for seeing both of them in focus. Thankfully I was able to merge two shots and get them fully focused, in a frame and properly exposed despite being in a shaded car.
Equipment
I hand held my fabulous, never to be parted with, Nikon d700, with my equally fabulous 70-200mm f2.8 Nikon lens.
Inspiration
I couldn't resist shooting these two - they were beyond fabulous and the photo will remain as one of my all-time favorites.
Editing
As mentioned above I merged two shots and then applied some Nik Software filters there it was, almost forgotten in my archives but brought into the light!
In my camera bag
Nikon d700, 14- 24mm nikon f2.8 lens, 70-200mm Nikon f2.8 lens and a Speedlight.
Feedback
Take lots of shots to make sure you get the look you want, especially when there is no time to inject any emotion, humor or posing into the situation.
