Dont you guys feel the beetle is overhyped . I dunno , i sometimes feel the mini is much much more sweeter and photogenic.

Awesome shot! Love the reflections of the sky on the bonnet and windscreen. Wish the wheel was turned a bit but since that isnt possible, nevertheless, great shot!

@guyonblackybx : The bug looks sublime in that colour and the way the pic is shot. Somehow, I love the iconic status of this car, the way it stands, the way its positioned and the way it looks. Everything seems to fall right in place just so long you dont see the price tag!

@TG : Is your car becoming more beautiful by the day, or are your photography skills getting polished?

@preetam
Well it depends on what are the cars yours eyes feast on daily , also I was not being modest! I do not think I am a good photographer for sure, but i love learning more and more about it because I love it.

@riju
Nice one, i would have liked the horizon line to be exactly at the one third of the frame. That way it could have attained perfection.

An over exposed on purpose shot.

@TG -> A nice high key shot, but it lacks the "punch factor" Maybe up the contrast a bit, and play with sliders here and there to create an effect like this?

TG- Great work as usual..

Riju.
Nice shot. I would have preferred the car to be more prominent in the frame but i wonder how u could have done it.
Which lens did u use for this pic?
