    Some more work for MOTOR magazine here in Aussieland.

    This was one of the cooler assignments I've gotten over the last couple of years, some of the looks you get cruising around in something worth as much as a house is "interesting" to say the least. Some love it, others not so appreciative, I think I got called a "yuppy wanker" about 20 times in one day.

    Unfortunately the weather wasn't kind to us, so with the limited time we had with the car and bike had to make do, not the best but was a great having two such amazing vehicles to shoot.

    amazing shots, i love 1,2,4. i feel that the selective color would be more effective in a couple of the shots if the car was red or some other color than black, but i'm sure you had no control over that.

    I really like #4 and #6.

    Just out of curiosity, how do they look without selective coloring?

    All these shots are amazing...great stuff as usual!

    The only thing that irks me about #4 is I wish the windscreen on the Ducati was clean and the helmet was clear as day (with the black contrast sticking out).

    What'd I'd do just to ride in/on either one of those bishes.

    I'm tripping balls on #2! If you focus at the car, then switch to the bike, then back to the car, it's like one of those trick 3D images where it's actually moving!

    maybe you could photoshop a full gas tank on #7.

    but i guess it's conspicuous consumption at its best.

    I can't understand why people "hate" on people that can afford such things.

    Great shots btw.

    thanks for the comments.

    Both were press vehicles, yeah I got to drive and ride them. I'm used to riding dirtbikes so the Ducati was very "different" to say the least.

    The breif asked for selective colouring, it does look much better in print than it does on here if I may say so.

    #6 is my favorite.
    #5 makes me sad. So much awesome in the picture and then there's this white POS car. :wtc:

    Usually just the 2sec timer but for the bike rig I used the crappy canon IR remote. Very weak range and only works with direct line of sight :(
