Raj, great pictures of your scorpio, especially the 14th & 15th.

IMHO, Scorpio is not a beautiful vehicle to shoot from every angle. You need to find the right angle to get a good looking scorpio. if you look at the 2nd & 3rd picture you can see that the rear is much bigger (not proportional) than the front of the scorpio & also reveals its issues with the length. In the third picture, if you move bit more to your right & bring both the A pillars in same line, or the left A pillar slightly to the front, Scorpio will look lengthier than its normal size.
(I am no expert in photography & may be i am totally wrong, but this is what i used to do)

Reminded me of the Mid Night Shyamalan's film "signs" and not of him.

Now.... that makes me think again, is there anything that makes me compare Midnight Shyamalan with Raj...... aaah...mmmmmm......

Oh..... I have seen pictures of M.Shyamalan but not Raj.., so no go

even i am no expert in photography, hence the end result...! but what you said is a valid point, infact now i think many of the pics could have been much better. hey, but why should we hide even the not-so-good part of our "buddies" in this thread? we all own scorpios right? (no other option rather than saying this now, feels good... ). yes, your points will be taken into consideration the next time i get a chance.
even i love the 15th pic, dont know for what reason. you must have noticed this in my avtar.

My question was why do you call Manoj Night Shyamalan, Mid Night Shyamalan?

Sorry OT again.

@Raj: Its not about hiding anything but looking it from a different angle. But I am sure you will think about it next time when you shoot your scorpio

For Eg.

Not so good angle.

better angle.

This is purely my view & not an expert's opinion.

Agree with you mansidea. Scorpio is a hideous looking car, and only from some angles can be made to look good.
But its a nice car inspite of the looks

Oh, oh, now a Mod has courted a controversy and that too right in the Den....

The last line is the sugar coating on the bitter pill... And sadly, I can't even take sides...

Dear Bhpians,
Well, it has taken more than 2 years to load my first photos on tbhp!
Here is my car before and after she underwent some minor mods.
