Well ...

usually I prefer B&W. But these colors and the sharpness are perfect.

Love the violet and pale yellow here and the small chrome handle.

Itís a bit different from your usual rotting carcases!

On a different note Ė Iím a bit surprised by the apparently matt finish of the paintwork. In the regions where there are no other visual clues (shadows etc) it all looks extremely flat.

I am also wondering why you chose a square format, other than that, as we know, you like said format.

The colour is sublime. A thing of beauty.

yes Chris

the paint is a matte paint alright, but very striking in the flesh especially under the bright sun; the original shot coves the whole headlight + slats but I elected to crop them for like you said I prefer square for lack of other reasons ;-)
