Beautiful pictures Riju. I love those alloys (both the cars).

Is that an accent spoiler ?

Have you painted your rear tail lamps ?

BTW, do the owners also look very similar ?

The white baleno is a little overblown. Next time, pick a dull overcast day, park in a really open space, no shadows on the car. Since you have a D50, use spot meter on the hood, keep EV at +2 or +1.5, try it out. Your composition are very good, just need to get right reflections and lighting on the car.

John, you would have met the other owner too. He was the one who was with Riju for the trip in his car.

Samurai thanks for the tips. The baleno like you mentioned has non-metallic paint(something like flat white? ). No matter what I couldnt get the right exposure.

Shooting pics of my car was easy in comparo to the white.

Like I mentioned the pic's dont do justice to the white baleno. Need to see it in flesh and blood.

John thanks a lot mate.

Nopes.

John the owner of the car was with me during the meet. He was standing non my right in the picture you had taken of me enjoying the beer .

Basil those rims are available in Lenso and the model is GC-II.

designation, thanks dude. I sure will sometime take pics of your baleno too.Well I love the baleno even more now .

shrivz my frend has no problemo with the wallpaper thingy.

khanak and hellspawn thanks guys. Will take sometime for me to induce the fact that a spoiler would look cool on my car too.

This world is indeed small. A couple of months back I saw this white baleno parked in my college parking lot and two days later I found it at a TBHP karting meet. Loved the looks as this is what I had initially planned for my baleno. Since white wasn't readily available I decided to take a silver car get it painted to white a little later on. Will do soon, perfect choice of rims. Infact along with Autophile I almost picked up the same rims in white 16'' though. For some odd reason decided against it at the last minute as I had other plans for engine mods and didn't want to diver my money on rims.

That said, Riju lovely pics. All I have to do is cover the number plate and I can claim these pics to be mine or just change the 5197 to 5107 . And convey my message to Malik too. I really liked is car a lot (exactly the way I had planned my car to have looked).

We all should meet up sometime for a shootout. I got some lovely pics of my baleno too, alas shot them with a puny phone camera. This time though will be well prepared.
