My last car I shot this weekend was an 07 Exige S. This orange on this car absolutely POPS. The vehicle was not quite as glamorous as the Carrera GT or the Murcielago I shot, but the pictures still came out awesome to say the last. I hope you guys enjoy and follow me on flickr if you want!

Very nice, I like them a lot!

The interior with the flash seems a little blown out but very cool

Awesome pictures! I like the use of the power lines as a background.. then again I work for an electric utility, so I may be biased towards them. Are those gauges down there near the pedals? I wonder how those get read during driving

I am at a lakehouse right now so I can later. This was the hardest rolling shot I have ever edited.

I think it would look better if the orange tint was slightly less intense. Here's a quick edit I did of it, hope you don't mind:

The colors have been corrected towards a more neutral spectrum and the saturation has been set to around 33%.

In this case, I think it's more of a mood shot than an attempt at reality & the color works IMO.
The fact that he has poles growing out of the body are another issue entirely. Kind of interesting, yes. But I don't see where they add interest to the car.

That rolling shot is superb. The rest don't strike me that much but that one stands out as an absolute winner.

the colors in the shots were near identical to what was shot, but heightened. As far as the poles, i think it adds something to the image. I would not have taken it if it hadn't. If it was only one pole sticking out then we would have a problem but all the poles gives the image a nice look. Visualize the shot without the power lines and I think the image would of been rather dull.

I think highlights in the car & the sky add plenty of interest, but it's your shot.
