Join in the fun since r32 has posted his works on a couple of mazda cars.. Well, dun have the opportunity to shoot a power car.. so jumped at the opportunity when a friend allowed me to shoot his Mazda 3 sometime back. Only found time to tone and post recently.

Shot in multistorey carpark near my home, these pics are shot with solely the sigma 18-50 if u are interested. Got stopped by the cops in the mids of shooting too (kudos to our guys in blue.. great to see ya doing ur job well :)). The entire series is toned to a dark, black, mysterious feel. So seat back, enjoy and hopefully, give me some feedback ya.

Oh yeah, before i forgot.. these images are COPYRIGHTED.. so do not try to do anything funny;)

I may have had the better subjects but your shots are definitely better executed, no doubt about it. Its on a totally different level. Superb.

The only thing I would like is to see them in colour, just to see if black and white really is the better choice.

Thanks for the comments r32... i dun think the colour ones should be seen.. thats the reason why i had it in b&w. direction of sunset, postioning of car, plus hdb flats in the background totally screwed it up. but i guess i'm lucky to be able to get such shots still. purposely went for a slight underexposed dark tone ,hope you liked the it ;)

I like the series generally. Small comment about this one... I fancy a more even level of lighting throughout the front would give the image a better sense of balance. It's a little dark on the right imho.

I do like the round feel to the shot. 17mm perhaps?

Canew: Thanks, me not pro lahz... jus another car lover :)

sehsuan: Used the natural skylight to light up the bonnet. no flash used.

SniperD: Thanks Ron, took a while to figure how to tone these pics.. Slowly learning along the way.. the series is kind of like temptation.. showing small portions, while masking off the whole of the car. Last pic was intended to show the front of the car, using the headlights and logo.. hehe.. dunno if it works.. so.. when u free for coffee man? :p
