My favourite from the day on a recent commissioned shoot... probably wouldn't make the cut with the client mind.

I don't know which I like more, the luscious red paint or the very round bokeh balls.

Client's first words were probably "it's a picture of nothing!"

Thank you, the vehicle now too old to need Road Tax (even if they were still required to be displayed) in the holder.

I had to use a Colour Checker Passport to ensure colour accuracy for this kind of work, so the paint colour is very accurate to the real vehicle.

Very round bokeh balls is always a good thing.

I've not even showed the client this shot.

Round bokeh usually comes from many iris blades or curved iris blades.
Which lens were you using here?

I really like images like this. So much to see that is often missed in the first view. Nice work, Sir Martin!
