An unusal and interesting series. Great shots of the Ultimate Driving Machine; looks like an E46.

It feels like a 70's European car magazine spread, I like it

I like the feel of them, but there seems to be a bit of a haze/greyish tint to them that doesnt sit right to my eyes. Maybe try clearing that up a bit, but otherwise nice series. Looks like something you would see in a magazine.

Seems? If that wasn't shot on 20 year old film, it was done on purpose.

thanks everyone. kind words are much appreciated... the haze was intended. as it was mentioned before about the 70's European spread, i was trying to pull a vintage feel to it.

These came out very good, you did an excellent job on picking out the details on the car. Plus, the overall treatment to the photos really makes them stand out.

This is a really great series. Well done. The "old" style look of the '70s is great.

Was the slightly grainy look PPing or natural?

Excellent series, I'm loving all the angles. My favorites are 1, 2 and 5. 1 I like becuase that way of taking pictures of insides of cars is my favorite and I really like photos like that.

2 I like becuase of the crisp focus, the reflections and the composition is pleasing.

I really like 5's composition and colours.

No film here. I shot it with my K20.
