Clinical! You could probably shoot a whole roll on just the chrome trim of this car (maybe you did!).

Very nice! Certainly picked a great model to shoot and thanks for posting, I was wondering about a Retina myself!

That is extremely nice - if I may take the liberty of making a suggestion (I don't know how close you can focus with a Retina as I have yet to find a good one...), I'd be sorely tempted to go even closer and to take the badge out, and perhaps even the top of the fin and make it even more abstract. There's just something about styling of that era...

Hope you don't mind, I shall foxtrot oscar and stop trying to teach you to suck eggs now!
