Default McLaren MP4-12C Spider | Supernova Silver

Wanted to get some quick shots of a special order MP4-12C Spider in a very incredible color and incredible carbon options. The pictures can't quite capture the large metallic flakes, but this was the most amazing silver paint I have ever seen.

Nice series, awesome car. If you ask me number three is the real standout here. Great shot.

Like the shots very much.... On the 4th one though the TV and bright orange around the formula 1 car a distracting to me.... Excellent series of images though!

This is a good series on it, but I'd like to see one where it's actually silver?

^ Are you questioning whether or not you would like to see one in silver? And how is this not actually silver? I can see the metal flakes just fine in the first two photos.

Great set, Tony. Love the detail shots.

Maybe I should have said, "actually looks silver?" To me it looks more like light gray. Not complaining, just requesting an image if Tony had reduced the saturation.

Metal flakes have nothing to do with the color? My Cruze has them, & it's black.

I liked having the older gen F1 car in the background and the new MP4 road car in the foreground. Yea, the orange in a but detracting. TBH, didn't even notice the TV until you told me I was very tired when I finished editing these.

I think because I "over processed" and went for a high-key look that the silver gets kind of washed out and looks more so like white in some images.

There's a question mark at the end, so it seems like you're not sure if you want to see silver or not.

Isn't silver just metallic gray? And if you desaturate silver, you still get silver.

They don't seem over-processed to me. I like the feel.

While I dont feel the UWA lens could capture to depth of the paint, I did a real close of the paint to get a feel for what it looked like up close. Really amazing!

Thanks! Not usually a fan of over the top selective colouring, although I am guilty of using it, but in this case making the yellow calliper pop on shot #3 make the photo very interesting.

Don't pay attention to the nitpicking... some people can't help themselves but to point something out no matter how good your shots are.

Fantastic work!
