Yessir, that is one sexy car, any chance he would take an Audi in trade? Very nice shots!

P.S. If he doesnt go for the audi idea I have a killer honda accord too!

Hahah :-), I don`t think so. He spend 1,5 year to bring this car to that shape and 10.000 :-)
But I can always ask him :-)

What a beauty! I have to say, I think the last one is my favorite because I like the way the water frames the car then I would say the first one and the second to last one. I think the little island is a little bit distracting.

This was my first time car photography, and considering that was taken with one Soft Box and speed light I`m really happy from the results. Pictures will be printed in the Old Cars (Triumphs) Magazine :-)

Thank you all.

Cool car and great photos. I know Triumph mostly for its motorcycles, I completely forgot there were cars, too
Btw, since it is a red car, did you use any special camera calibration? Like that passport thingy?

A nice group of photos, for sure. I particularly like the 3rd and 5th ones. I'd like to see a few with the top down, after all that's their natural state .

I've driven a few these guys - mostly back in the day. Slow but still fun .

+1 to this, I think the 3rd one would look a lot better with a drop top and maybe a blonde behind the wheel.

Nice series and everything looks better with a blonde behind the wheel.
