    Fun to shoot classic cars, but the lighting and crowding was challenging. I would definitely give it another try.

    Lots to photograph, but it was quite warm out, even earlier in the day. Thankfully, some cars in the shade. Had no idea who was in the group, but lots of people with cameras.

    Better than I expected. Amazed at the number of cars at the event. Poor lighting mid day as expected, but a nice breeze and plenty of shade made the event bearable (temperature wise)

    It was great. Many beautiful cars. Didn't meet up with anyone. Did it solo.

    Saw quite a few cameras there - but wasn't sure if any of them belonged to our group. A lot of great cars and friendly people. A nice event - despite the heat!

    This is our first time with SB photography. Do we meet at a specific location to gather with the group, or do we just show up, walk around on our own, and take photographs?
