This Ferrari F430 was brought over to Malta to take part in an annual, charity event involving over 1000 cars of different makes and qualities; an event that attracts thousands of petrolheads and general public alike! The event is part of a series of charity events that take place annually in Malta to collect funds for the "Community Chest Fund" - Malta's foremost charitable fund under direct control of the President of the Republic.

The general public was being given the opportunity to drive a similar (but not street legal) Ferrari F430 on a 2 mile stretch (the secondary runway at Malta's International Airport) against a pre-set level of donation. Alternatively, they could donate money and ask to ride this white Ferrari instead, (but not drive it).

This shot is a B/W conversion of an HDR-treated image. I went for HDR since the sky was very bright, but had quite a lot of detail in it, and there was also considerable detail in the shadows too - the grill, the stands in the background, the texture of the ground, etc.

The only pity is the front area of the car - I couldn't get to blur the ugly area up front where the car's number plates resided. Apparently the owner removed these and the area underneath was very ugly. Some blurring was needed to make this less conspicuous but I still don't like it! Any mods would be appreciated as my software options are a bit limited!
