I'm a sucker for these kind of shots, as I very much enjoy shooting them myself.

I like the tension created by the black line running across the top of the frame against the badge and number further down. The blue and red offset each other to dramatic effect, creating a bold, graphic composition that I'd be very happy to call my own. In a perfect world, I'd maybe have like the badge and number slightly further down the frame, creating equal horizontal running thirds, but i appreciate that there's nothing you could've done about that.

Michael.

Michael...many thanks for the GE Award and for your comments.

Firstly to explain my positioning for this shot...I'm standing nearside front wing between the Wheel and Door.

I have uploaded a version to show the original shot, the idea I had in mind was to show the parallel lines between the top black gap of the Bonnet opening line and the lower grey piping trim of the wing joint , however because of the 1600 badge, I didn't have enough room to crop the curve the Bonnet opening takes towards the windscreen, so decided just to crop the lower Wing trim, thus leaving the top curve, I also wasn't too happy with the shade of red caused by reflections on the wing. Like you said the chrome badges were nicely reflecting the deep blue sky.

I only just dug this picture out last night as I had uploaded another two for the forum topic Canon 18-55 kit lens. Car shots were taken in a Visitors Centre place at Conniston Sept 2010.

Thanks again Michael, much appreciated.

Like version 1. My uncle had an MGF with the wooden dipstick for the fuel. Became a bit too much work although he still misses it and now has a later version although still a beautiful car. Do like them, may be one day I will save enough Smile
