    Thanks!
    Many thanks George and Jeremy - I'm happy you like them. The 8th shot is my favourite - I took that one after the comp to add a couple more shots to the set - if I had of taken it earlier I would have used it as my entry. I almost left out the last shot because I didn't really like the original - it was all too dark and flat but after playing around editing it I think it's now one of my favourites of the set.
    Oh and Jeremy - DO IT!

    Thanks guys :)
    It was a great theme and a great poll... and thanks! :)
    :O Aw shucks, you're too kind. Glad you liked them - I rarely take B&W shots but I really enjoyed that photo shoot so I may try taking a few more from time to time.

    These shots are wonderful :drool: :drool: :drool: B&w footage perfectly emphasizes the beautiful car shapes. My favorites are #3 and #4,but all of them are great. Fantastic work Nathan ! :tup:

    That's a shame! I think that you're very good at taking and editing black-and-white photos. :)

    Those ALpha-Beta outtakes are, bloody beautiful mate! :):tup:
    And out of all those random shots earlier, those Appletree Astons are my favourite. Remember when that was your entry for the 2.0, loved it.

    Oh and what has always appealed to me is the lighting and composition your edits have. Fine work, I'm still trying to get as good as that!

    The B/W toning makes the set feel somewhat...1950 for some reason.
    The atmosphere's good and felt and the 1950ness from the whole thing's just...woo!

    The Alfa 8C B&W set is just really good. B&W just worked so well, I don't know how but it did. The set before however, if I'm to say anything it is a bit bright for my taste at times, but again... You still make them look epic. Again, I don't know how, but you did. :bowdown: Nicely done. :tup:

    Many thanks Lee! :cheers:
    The 8C does suit B&W shots quite well so that certainly helped - I'm glad you liked them. :)
    Thanks, I will endeavour to try it out a little more often.
    Thanks mate, I was pretty happy with the Astons shot too - I had done a split screen shoot with my son (9 yrs) but it very quickly degenerated into a destruction derby and that shot right at the start of the run was the only one I could get without the cars being half wrecked - I'll dig up another shot from that run and post it with my next update.
    And thanks for your kind words regarding my shots/editing - I still don't consider myself as being all that good especially considering much of the incredible talent on display here in the Photomode forums, but I'm certainly much better than when I started. You are producing many great works yourself so you are not so far off as you may think. ;)

    Thanks Eric, much appreciated. :)
    Woo 1950's - not sure that's what I going for but I'll take it. :D
    Many thanks, seems to have gone down quite well that Alfa set. :)
    Thanks, B&W does work well with the 8C and I see what you mean with the previous set of shots - some are quite bright and a little more saturated than I usually have them - glad you still like them. :)

    +1 to what Lee said. I think the pocket cars are amazing and your comp entries are great. Love the tones in all of your shots. Of course, composition and everything else is fantastic too. I wish I had your chops for editing. Seems like fun. :)

    Thanks Lee and Dave - the Pocket Rocket edits are really easy when you know how. ;)

    Almost forgot to post this shot as promised to rambo793.
    Never let your 9 year old behind the wheel of an Aston Martin! :lol:

    Oh man, you have to create more toy vehicles. It is a task you must add to your chore list. :D

    You wouldn't mind compacting Jay Leno's Tank car, a JGTC vehicle, and a 3.0 edit by changing a car into a limo and turning that limo into a toy limo?

    I'm also enjoying all of these "pocket rocket" edits - great implementation. :tup:

    Your entires are always solid and good. Even the outtakes are nice. :tup:

    And those pocket rockets are just awesome and funny. You're very good at them and the quality of editing shows. I love them. :tup:

    I feel the same as Lee, I'd love to do this but I think my attempts would be terrible in comparison.

    Thanks Nenad - would you believe that is the first shot I've ever taken of the Miura - I only just bought it. :dunce:
    Glad you like my miniature car edits. :)

    Thanks George. :tup: As I said to Lee the pocket rockets are really quite easy once you've done a couple and are a fun edit - worth having a go. ;)
    Thanks guys - I'm really happy you all like them. :cheers:
    It's hard to go wrong with the Miura - it's a beautiful car. ;) I'm happy you like the HSV shots - I still have to go back over my replay and take some more shots for a full set - I hope to have time for that this week.
    First, thanks! Second, thanks again! Third, :lol: Fortunately the panel beaters in GT5 are miracle workers. :)
    Thanks, there will be more HSV to come. It would be kinda cool to have miniature cars in Gran Turismo. :D
