Truly stunning Travancore! That's some serious talent you got there. If you put the car on a stone surface with some green around and trees in the distance, photographs against this sort of a backdrop will make the car look real, i.e. 1:1 scale. How about it

A little OT but this is what I mean:

Photographing cars with a realistic scale background is not easy, as I learned!

Woah! Those shots are incredible; far better than what I had in mind! Congratulations on the car and the wonderful photos.
