John, my grandaughter`s boyfriend, wanted a picture of his Mustang which he has fitted with underbelly glowing lights. This is the last shot from Calgary before I return to Rome tomorrow morning...not in this chariot but in a flying one.

Wow! Can see you've got a background in advertising Smile Your granddaughter's boyfriend would have been pretty thrilled with this I'd imagine.
Have a safe trip home.

Not your usual shot, David, but a cracking one nonetheless! Until I read your description I thought you'd produced that red glow in PS. The background is very fitting, and altogether it looks like a top class advertising shot.

Hi Grant and thank you for your comment...don`t know about the manipulated category since, if you think of Photoshop as a personal darkroom in your desktop, then all I`ve done is graded different areas to get different depths and also matted together two shots taken on a tripod of the car early in the evening and later at night. I`m not at all sure that what we call manipulation nowadays is only called that because we do it on a computer whereas before it was under a projector in a darkroom. If you consider that what I`ve done is manipulation that`s fine by me...I don`t try to hide it. I just do it to try and get an image that looks better. For me it`a picture of a car no matter how the end result was achieved. Oh and by the way, the red glow beneath the car was real and not added by me...
Take care
David

great looking image- the exposure is perfect and makes for a wondeful looking image fit for a poster size on a wall - definitely compliments the car very well.

i need to go to the states with my camera - the backdrops are far better than here in the UK =)

congratulations on the EC and keep up the great work

I was looking at this shot for a minute and then suddenly realized "Hey, that's Calgary!". I'm not a big fan of those under car lights at all but as far a photograph goes, this is fabulous. Very well done. Where did you take this shot from? Up near the zoo?
