I like the subtle tones & clean reflections in #4. Those wheels give the term "Dog dish hub caps" new meaning? ;)

I must say.. car itself is clean and very nice. The wheels completely throw it off for me.

Great job shooting.

Nice shots mate!


I see that car getting around Melbourne, And i cant help but wonder to myself why?

It may just be me but if i was going to spend the $ customizing, air bagging and painting a car. it would be a mid 60's impala :)

But each to their own.

DEAR GOD. What have they done to it :(

The photography is good man, and the location very nice, but the subject matter on the other hand...

Bloody Australians and their chrome! So 1999

Chrome over here in america is usually an African American thing or wannabe white person pretending to be African American.... usually.

Nice shots Nick.

Where is this location mate ? I've been hunting around for few locations but couldn't find many with decent graffiti art.

Cheers

I think the car is pretty swish, it looks really nice in person. Personally i would spend my money on something else.

Khaled they were taken in Seaford, are you looking to shoot a car or something else?

Very nice shots and I like the color isolations that you did.

To me it feels like the rims overpower the car tho especially being so cambered out. But i guess everyone has their own taste

Can't say I care for the car, itself, but I think #4's a fantastic shot of it. Background is fitting, colors/tones are great like Frank mentions and the angle really shows the length of the car best.
