    I think the lens was too wide. The car looks a bit distorted.

    yes, the lens is VERY wide, which is intended.

    but maybe you are right that it does not produce an image for making cars look nice ;)

    looks like a pencil eraser... but I know its not... just the distortion talking..

    And add 25 HP !!!

    From the point of view of composition the car should be on the other side because of the somewhat diagonal slopping lines at the top.

    Guess you are right with that. This is a shot I just took when I came back to my car. Not planned. So I was too lazy to change sides with the car just for the shot. Probably a mistake ;)

    Being as I am from the US, the car seems out of place to me, but I honestly think that is only due to being accustomed to the oncoming side being opposite. My thoughts on the perspective have alredy been mentioned and explained so I won't repete it further like a fool.

    Feels like I must invite Battou (urgently) to join in on our meet-up next May (and you, too, Krueger!!!! who I doubt you are as "ghastly" as you claim and would like to see proof!!!) so he can see that we drive on the very same side of the road as the Americans do, too.
    And Thorhammer, he must also come to see that ALL THE CARS in Germany have licence plates at their front and back.
    I think, that cars without a licence plate in the front look weird. "Stolen" they look ;).

    And you really mean to come up here in THAT DISTORTED Audi, Alex!?!?!
    And maybe even bring people along who fly into Düsseldort Airport!?!?!? Ugh...

    :wink:
