    Since Fiat 500 seems to be cheapest car to hire in Europe, we decided to shoot a collection of landscapes with the car as the subject on our road trips.

    Again, C&C welcome. (Tips on processing, composition very welcome).

    The first 3 were shot at Glen Coe in Scotland (where part of the Skyfall movie was filmed)

    More awesome shots. It's fun seeing what these little cars will do when you hire them out. We had something similar in Tassy with a tiny little Hyundai.

    #2 is my pick. Great lighting.

    Its strange when you go from a sports/large car to these smaller cars. Your prejudices fall away as its so bloody convenient to drive one of these things

    Thanks for the comments! I'll continue with this series for as long as we have access to a Fiat 500 :p

    It is actually a pretty amazing little car, in our most recent road trip we did about 5000kms, covering 5 countries in 3 weeks. It worked surprisingly well blasting down the autobahn, the 0.9L 2cyl can keep up with the rest of them :D

    .. not sure if anyone noticed, all but the first 3 shots it was running on 14" steelies with plastic hubcaps :p

    Awesome work, look like you really put it to good use:)

    I lived in that car in Europe for 4 weeks as well .. It's also known as the Panda right ?

    I don't think the shots would have worked with a Panda :p

    Went through the set again, and found 10), probably one of my favourites now..

    Reprocessed 2) as well.
