The Owl’s Head Transportation Museum held a Fabulous 50s, Sensational 60s car meet this weekend that featured classic automobiles from the 1950s and ‘60s. I used the Pro HDR app on my iPhone 5 to capture some of the cars on display. This photo app takes two pictures — one to capture the shadows and one to capture the highlights — and then combines them into one color-saturated picture. The photos have a vintage-postcard feel, which is perhaps the best way to showcase cars from 50 and 60 years ago.
