Award Shortlist   


By ChiliMan
Wow…I never expected to get a user award for a Silly Sunday upload! My heartfelt thanks to Jennnn ( taggart ) for that wonderful surprise Smile


Now then…here’s something from last July. I’m not particularly a Mercedes fan but I saw this nice shiny one (I found the profile of this model really nice, actually, but I didn’t take a profile shot) in a carpark and decided to take a shot.

It wasn’t something I had intended to keep…but ended up doing a fiddle-dee-dee with it…and thought I’d upload the result since it didn’t look too bad. I left in the lines on the ground ‘cos they reminded me of mandibles Grin

V2 is the straight-from-cam shot.

I hope everyone’s having a good Monday.
