Inspired by the "Toyota Roadster" picture by fatwoul, thought I'd try something similar myself...

nice tone , for me the bottom left and the top right are the strongest, i know that car has a nice curve or two, i'd quite like one of them too.

but hey, that's all personal preference,

great pic,

Agree with blindpilot, but prefer the bottom two! A really good composite image showing a love of the car.

Don't think it would work with my Laguna..

I have also been inspired by his Toyota roadster and have been working on something similar - I love this and like your choice of car too. The sepia works well!

Nice job, Nick, and thank you for doing the kindness of crediting me.

While I agree that the bottom two and top two images are quite different pairs, I suspect that all that is really needed is for the arrangement to be worked on a little.

As I mentioned in the discussion attached to "Toyota Roadster", I messed around with the orientations and positions of the images exhaustively. Finally, I settled upon an arrangement that meant the images all worked in such a way as to repeatedly lead the eye back into the centre of the image.

In my case, only one image has words in it, so only one must be kept "right way around". As a result I was free to flip or rotate all the others as I wished.

In your case, how does it look if you do the following:

1) Swap the top two images over.

2) Then, swap what are now the two on the right over.

3) finally, flip top left horizontally.

The result should be:

Top Left: Headlight (Flipped Horizontally)
Top Right: Steering Wheel
Bottom Left: Jag E-Type V12 badge
Bottom Right: Wheel & Wing

That all makes it sound like I am tearing this picture to pieces, which really I am not - its a minor thing that I just feel might make the whole collection slightly more dynamic.

My original set had 6 in it, and two of them proved completely redundant, because they did nothing for the set. However, that doesn't mean its always the case, and you might have other images that could make this into a good 6-image thing.

Anyway, well done, good job, gets a click. Smile

Well, I'm not normally a fan of these sort of montages but I really like this. It think the sepia has added to it and maybe changing the order would improve it but I couldn't pass comment on that!
Best compliment I can give is it would look good on the wall

Thanks everyone for the comments.

Fergus - yeah, I agree with you about the curves, problem is that the pictures I've got with the curves have reflections of bystanders in them. I'll have to have a play in Photoshop to see if I can remove them.

Robin - thanks for the suggestions - I appreciate you spending the time looking at this. See what your saying about making the image more dynamic with a bit of rearranging - I'll give it another go this weekend and post up the results.

Richard - another 30 years and they'll be queueing up to photo that Laguna of yours Wink
