I haven't posted here for months due to taking a non-photographic job which leaves me with no time for anything photographic even on a hobby scale.

However, I'm determined to keep shooting and posting and shall try to do so more frequently.

This was found in a supermarket multistorey carpark in Kingston upon Thames. If the car isn't distinctive enough for you the registration plate surely is!

SIGMA SD10 3/10 second F/4.0 ISO 100 10 mm

I'm not really postimg much on here these days. I only intend to post my personal projects or experimental work as this is what I need feedback on - so please do leave a constructive comment or a star rating.

These days I post more regularly to the blog on my website, so skate on over there to see what I've been up to recently: Freelance Photographer in Newcastle upon Tyne | Subtle Sensor Photography

You can find my fashion and portrait work here: Subtle Sensor on Model Mayhem

Thanks for dropping by!

Great capture from a great angle of great car with a truly horrible license plate.

@amos: Ha ha! Yes it is awful isn't it =D) There really is no need for that reg on such a car. Thanks for the compliment on my shooting though.

I find the flourescent lights a bit distracting, obviously with them being the brightest/ lightest parts of the image my eyes are drawn to them. I like the image overall. The yellow is quite vibrant & the person looking back at the car kinda says it all really. Beautiful piece of machinery.

@Mala: Great comment, thanks =D)

I like the person looking back - thisn is my favourite shot of the two. I applied quite a heavy vignette and drastically underexposed the image in post processing to try and mute the lights but I didn't want to take it too far.

I agree though, they attract the eye first and then the line of the lights and the beams draws your eye out of the picture before you ever look at the car - but thats why I like the guy looking back at the car, because, despite the way the picture is organized, we still end up looking at the car anyway =D)

But you're right. there is definitely a conflict in there. Thanks for the considered appraisal - keep it up!

The lights don't worry me too much . . I can imagine they were a real-time distraction when you looked at the car so they become part of the reality, in a way. Crazy car, insane 'plate . . but you cannot help but look, I agree.
