    lilcdkey; I think that's my fav shot from the set. Straight-ahead and confined, keeps the eyes focused on the main subject. I like how the line of the overhang roof parallels the profile of the car.

    By the way, I think we have almost exactly the same car.. aside from a few mods on your end, and probably a lot more miles on mine (143K!). I recently debadged and am very happy with it. Need to paint or replace the front bumper markers, looks so much better in black.

    Mine are jet black painted reflectors with Khoalty. I'm not completely happy with them though. They don't seem 100% perfect and I'm very particular. I'm not very happy with any of Khoalty's products actually.. Yeah I have exactly 49,300 mi now.

    Man that car pops off the white background, I really dig the only color is the red rear brake light. Real nice touch.

    Also the lone door, sort of a play on the lone driver and his car, man and machine...and door haha maybe a stretch but it pulls your eye.

    Thanks! You're actually pretty close to what was in my head. I was thinking the car is like a well-trained Doberman. Sleek, muscular, aggressive, black, and intensely loyal. Standing strong, silent watch by the door, waiting for his owner to emerge. What's going on behind the door?

    I almost gave up on the panorama; I had snapped only three images quickly and it was a hell of a time getting them to stitch properly. Should have used 5 or 7 shots. There's still some distortion on the left that I just had to live with.
