[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a combination of three shots fused together. the perspective was changed using the SKEW commands. Tones were adjusted using CS5 and Silver Efex Pro.

No tripods were allowed so sharpness was a challenge. It is impressive that Photomatix could align the hand held shots.

Bom dia Roger,

Fantastic job with great contrast and sharpness (light is perfect, as always).
Superb focus and a great presentation.


Hello Roger, outstanding reflections on the bodywork of this expensive looking car.The b/w was the perfect way to present this shot.Colour would have been a distraction.
The sharp quality is excellent.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Fantastic HDR work Roger and your perspective is excellent. I'm impressed that the handheld shots can be aligned so well also. One of my Facebook friends does a lot of handheld HDRs too. Nice work.

Hi Roger

A superb b&w shot of the car with the wide angled view working well here. Nice sharpness & tonal range with good lighting contrasts. Tfs!

Lovely B&W showing that ads for cars do not need to be in colour.The contrasts are stiunning. Great sharpness despite low light and well composed.

Hi Roger,
Very neat capture. The reflection in this car and even those in the glass of the "showroom" are outstanding. Very nice work!

Hi Roger,
super shot of the car - it looks a bit like an Aston DB6 Volante similar to the one Andrew and Kate used at the royal wedding (hope its yours!)
I agree its quite amazing that Photomatix can align the hand held images
