Car at the mall


This was a "demo" car at the mall...one of those people ooh and aah over until they look at the price tag. I played a bit in Photoshop to give a little reflection in the mall floor.

Your pixels are really perfect :-))) I wonder what car this is. I don't know anything about cars. American cars, brand new or used, are so clean compared to ours!!!! Here they are covered with dust and we would need to wash them every day.

You described perfectly what happens around a demo car. I thought the photo was a real reflection shot...
Congratulations to Snapshutter for your award!

If they would only stay that shiny after you drive them out of the showroom!

Am I up-side-down or right-side-up??? Pretty clever, I'd say.

Looks racy and I love your effect. I'll still have a Ferrari though, please.

It's an amazing photo (good job on the reflection). About the house in the woodsy area....it's a "steal"...love to have that. Hope it's still there in November or December. We will stop by to see. Thanks for the info.

This is a great "shop" job. I am trying to figure out the car..... Astin Martin?

Congrats to S.S. His photos are first rate.

Great work and framing on this one.

Congratulations to Snapshutter, he allways posts the most amazing photos!

Did you buy the car later for Lois? She shouldn't have to "run" to the mall every time!

Jacob said...

Hey Leif - How do you think she stays in shape?

Dianne said...

I love the reflection

Memphis MOJO said...

Marvelous shot.

Asta said...

Hi Jacob,

Happy Weekend!

Super reflection here, Jacob!

Nice photo=shopping!

The reflection is pretty good, nice effect!

Beautiful toy! The little part you show in the picture is enough to stimulate the imagination and guess what kind of car that is. Naturally, everything has its price... :) I can imagine along the oohs and aahs people shoot out a sound "oh f..." when seeing the price tag...
God bless you!

Always a fan of a reflection, especially the puddle shot.

Double cool!
