Ferrari Parade

Post by Lisa » Fri Jul 21, 2017 8:08 pm

From Joe

Saturday 22nd July: A large parade of Ferrari cars is set to drive from Maldon, through Tiptree and on to Colchester High Street in celebration of the iconic car manufacturer's 70th anniversary.

Leaving Maldon at approx 4.45pm and due to arrive in Colchester at approx 5.30pm, the convoy of over 100 cars will pass through Tiptree along Maldon Rd - Colchester Rd at about 5pm.

The convoy includes a very rare 250 GT BERLINETTA SWB worth an estimated £10 million and at least one LAFERRARI APERTA worth an estimated £6 million.

Full list of vehicles can be found here: https://www.jardinemotors.co.uk/ferrari ... 0e917055a9

Local traffic may be affected while the parade passes through the village.

Thanks Phil.
I did go but stood on the corner of Head Street and the High Street so the cars in my images are at an angle so nice to see the Ferraris 'head-on'. It was interesting to see that the cars really 'popped-out' in some of them and am guessing he used photoshop to blur the crowds a little as his aperture is the same in many of them.

I'll try and get mine uploaded later.

Yes I think you're right Lisa about the blurred backgrounds in some of Ken's shots - he's used PS. Very effective!

Some great shots Lisa - well done. 127 my favourite - would it be worth blurring the background more with PS so the car really jumps out at you?
