    Lotus Exige 'S' with performance pack, 2008 model, one careful lady owner.
    I would appreciate some C&C - especially the first shot. I am bothered about the shaft of light on the right, near the top. Cloning it out would lose the wing mirror.

    Thanks!
    It's the low setting sun on the tarmac. I thought I had positioned another car to stop it, but the other car (a Range Rover) was <cough> a little taller. The sun nipped through.

    i really like #1

    #2 bothers me because of the front tire being so blown out

    Seriously! And yeah, i love that first shot. The 2nd shot brings your attention to the front tire.

    Gary, lovely shots. I have to agree with the others regarding the blown black on the front tire in the second shot. The light in the first picture is not nearly as distracting.

    With the exception of Ginetta (Walklett bros.), the G4 specifically, I'd concur. While I haven't driven the Exige, I have spent quite a bit of seat time in the Elise, and in my opinion, the G4 is more fun, more responsive, and is MUCH more stable at speed (the Elise tends to get squirrely above about 90mph). Plus, while the Elise gets lots of looks and comments, the G4 just makes everyone smile. The most beautiful sport car to ever come out of the UK. And THAT'S quite a feat!!

    Just for reference, this is the original colour shot that the client preferred in B&W. The conversion was quick and on location. I preferred the colour shot, but the client is always right..right?

    I agree with you I like that pic it looks better in color, especially with that background.
