    Some more work for MOTOR magazine, should be on the shelves 3...2..1.. Now.

    This was one of the cooler assignments I've gotten over the last couple of years, some of the looks you get cruising around in something worth as much as a house is "interesting" to say the least. Some love it, others not so appreciative, I think I got called a "yuppy wanker" about 20 times in one day.

    Unfortunately the weather wasn't kind to us, so with the limited time we had with the car and bike had to make do, not the best but was a great having two such amazing vehicles to shoot.

    Nice work. I do like the way the ground looks in the fourth.

    Awesome work!

    This looks like the same black California that merrily whizzed past my bus on Oxford St as I was going home tonight :upset:

    I suspect it's also the same one that attended the last track day at Oran Park...

    How was the camera mounted to the bike?

    I've got a KTM RC8 and would defintely love some similar shots!

    Personally I liked the shots with B&W and coloured parts. Some of the others seemed a bit too overdone - surely the machinery can speak for itself and doesn't need the photographer to dress it up too much.

    I think there is too much motion blur. Or it's over exposed. Not sure.

    Also, the selective desat needs to be MORE selective. Like only logos or something. I don't like it how i can see the colour of the suspension canister.

    that is awesome
    colours and smoothness are great
    i do have some criticisms though

    3.feels imbalanced between the two vehicles as only the bike has colour. like the 'colour composition' is wrong
    5.quite ordinary as you dont really pick up the ferrari, the tarago has as more significance than the feerrari
    7.nothing going on here

    1,2,4 are insane :thumbup:
