Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance

Aryton Senna's Lotus Formula 1 car.

On Sunday, September 17th, the Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance held their fifth annual classic car show. This isn't just any car show, this is probably one of, if not 'the', premier classic car show in Canada. With international judges and entrants from all over North America including many from right here in Ontario, Cobble Beach has quickly established itself in a few short years to be a must-see for car enthusiasts and collectors alike.

Before and after. Cooper Climax.

To showcase some of these collectible automobiles, we went to photograph the event again this year to capture these very rare and very expensive machines. The challenge is that the Sunday is open to the public. While there is no challenge for the organizers in bringing visitors to the golf course on which this event is held, photographing the cars with people everywhere is! Thus we had to spend considerable time to photo edit the pictures to remove as many people, objects and visual clutter as was possible. This allows us and the viewer to focus on the car with little distraction other than the golf green grass, the blue sky and the beautiful backdrop that is Georgian Bay.

Before and after. Ford GT40.

The time to photo edit these was well worth it as we are huge car fans here at First Impression Graphics. Isolating these beautiful machines visually and digitally was a labour of love. We have included a couple of 'before-after' shots so you can see how well our photographer did and to hopefully have you appreciate how difficult this task can be.

Below is a gallery of many of the finished results (note: we also decided last minute to include quite a few shots from previous years events). We hope you enjoy them! And if you require photography services, photo editing, design, web design or print services, do not hesitate to reach out to us via our Contact Us page or call 416-910-6122.
