My favorites from a week of shooting in Forza 6. Forzatography's never been so fun, and I am barely scratching the surface!
Glad to see you finally start one! Love the detail photos
A nice start, my favourites are the BMW V12 and the Lotus F1 shots.
Attention to detail photos are quite beautiful pal! Always good to see those around here. And what an extreme capture of the Ford Escort!!
My favourite has to be the first shot for one reason. And that is the layout.
Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat - Color: Sublime Green
Thanks for all the comments, guys!
That green is so bright it's a slap to the face! The rear shot of the burnout is great, and goes along perfectly with the idea of the car. I really enjoy the perspective of the second to last shot too.
Oh wow! That first shot just pops!
A lot of great shots in here and nice angles. I really like the yellow shot from the rear and I always like extremely bright colors especially the green Hellcat.
Honda #5 Zengo Motorsport Civic WTCC - Color: ---
Thanks for passing by and leaving a comment! I really wanted to showcase how loud and inclined to shred tires the Hellcat is. And of course I had to get my overpowered American drag barge in the most ludicrous color available.
Took the WTCC Civic for a spin in the wet on the Nurburgring. I already had some miles with the car on dry conditions, so I foolishly thought I could've pushed it. Bad idea.
Well, at least I got some shots of the Zengo Motorsport car. I'm still in awe at how good this game looks in the rain.
Man, that last set won't let me pick a favorite, well maybe, the second from last is super, nice work.
Love the Civic set so much. Really impressed with the one where it went on the grass and the debris flying up.
What can I say about the Civic set: Agressive, Fancy and super good looking!
What can I say about the Challenger set: Lovely green beast, nicely captured in great angles! Well done
House of M
BMW #92 Rahal Letterman Racing M3 GT2
My favourite has to be the seventh shot due to the layout.
Hopefully we will see a new update from you.
It's hard to believe there's been a time when Audi wasn't synonymous with affordable luxury, or motorsport success. In 1989, the German brand was essentially an upscale version of Volkswagen, without any prestigious victory to claim in circuit racing. The 90s, with the A4 and the A8, changed the former - but the 90 quattro was the first attempt to change the latter, an assault on the American-dominated IMSA GT series. Audi didn't win its only championship - ironically due to the decision to not take part in the two endurance races at Daytona and Sebring - but with seven races won out of fourteen, it finally gained some important recognition in the world of motorsport.

Now there are some proper good shots in this gallery. well done.
The third shot is very pleasing to the human eye due it's composition. However if there was one thing that would be tweaked by me, then it would have how much aperture is being used. Because I reckon an increase in background blur would make for an even better shot.
Last of an Ancient Breed
The Ferrari 312P - or "PB", as it was called to distinguish it from the 1969 berlinetta - was the last serious foray by Ferrari in the world of sports cars racing. Capitalizing on Porsche's temporary retirement from the category, the Ferrari cars dominated the 1972 season - although they didn't take part in the Le Mans 24h, as the car's reliability wasn't on par with that of the then-domineering Matra cars. In 1973, however, Ferrari was forced to partecipate if they were to have any hope of winning the World Sportscar Championship. The improvements in reliability weren't sufficient and, despite keeping a blistering pace, the only surviving car finished in second. A surprise retirement from the Targa Florio allowed Matra to win the series: this was to be the last year of Ferrari competing in any official capability in this category of motorsports, as Enzo Ferrari himself decided to focus Maranello's efforts solely on the F1 World Championship.
Monza seemed like the perfect proving ground for the PB - not only for the geographical closeness to Maranello's gates and the historical significance the circuit wears for the Prancing Horse brand, but also because the long straightways, fast corners and tight chicanes are perfect to give the car's powerful brakes and delightful-sound flat-12 engine a good workout.

Thanks! I am to please.
I actually took that shot twice, with different aperture settings; I should still have that second version with a more blurred background on my HDD. However, I eventually decided to go with that shot because of how... Weird it looked. Alas, sometimes Forza's bokeh leaves a lot to be desired as far as fidelity goes...
My personal favourite has to be this one.
The Anglo-American Racers Eagle is a brutally efficient, yet astonishingly beautiful F1 machinery. Born just before aerodynamic wings and sponsor-dictated colors and liveries took the world of Formula 1 by storm and dictated its direction until present day, the T1G depicted in Forza Motorsport is the product of the mind of driver Dan Gurney and engineer Len Terry, and it's essentially an Indy car with a high-revving (for the time) Weslake-built V12 engine strapped to the back. An approach that would prove successful, eventually bringing home the only victory for an American team and an American driver in its own car at the 1967 Belgian GP.
Unfortunately, even back then money was a necessary element of a winning team; and AAR was a newcomer team to the world of open-wheel racing, this being their first independently-developed chassis. The T1G would only race for one full season, the reliability issues that forced Gurney to retire several times from the lead left unresolved as the team's finances dried up. Eventually, Gurney would announce the retirement of AAR from F1 at the 1968 Italian GP. The Eagles would become a force to be reckoned with in the USAC and CART circus.
Looking at the timeless lines of this Eagle, one can only wonder: what could've been?

Diggin' pattern blue.
The future ain't what it used to be...
The discovery of nuclear fission was, perhaps, one of the most defining events of the first half of the 20th century. Its weaponization was the exclamation point at the end of the bloodiest conflict of human history; but in its harnessing for creative, rather than destructive, purposes we found inspiration. Sure, right now nuclear energy seems like a relic of the past - a view no doubt shaped by the catastrophes that left a deep mark on the public conscience - but in the past, it was the future. A consumeristic, robotized future that hadn't seen the mass-scale miniaturization of electronics that revolutionized our world much more than nuclear energy ever could.
Enter the world of Fallout, an homage to the future that never came to be before anything else, and enter the Rocket 69, which perfectly represents an atomic society that nuked itself into oblivion. It's the jet-age dreams of the early 60s, substantiated: a feast of wasteful engineering, it's larger than a Rolls-Royce and yet only sits one occupant in a jet-like bubble canopy. Its handling is better suited at driving in the elevated highways of the pre-apocalyptic US than it is to, well, doing anything that involves movement of the plane-like joystick. The result of this reinterpretation of the 60s vision of the future manages to look more gaudy than sporty... Just as you'd expect!
I guess that in the end, I'm glad I live in a world where the highest realization of any eventual desire for an egocentric car is the BAC Mono. But fantasy exercises like this highlight in a dramatic view that the future ain't what it used to be; that maybe, as a whole, we've become a society of sensible people which can't enjoy a car that is focused not on pure performance, but rather on big, meaningless numbers and promises and using bleeding-edge technology just for the heck of it.

I was a bit busy yesterday to leave a comment, but I wanted to.
That was such a fun, interesting write up. The pictures were great, too.
I love the mathical composition in this shot.
