It's certainly a lovely looking car with true super car performance. We had spotted it on show a couple of days earlier in another part of Dubai but I only had my bridge camera at hand on that day, the car imust be showcasing in various locations around Dubai. The photo I have posted is in one of the most photogenic areas in Dubai with The Burj Khalifa (the worlds tallest tower) visible behind the towers of Dubai International Finance district & S.Z. Road.

I will try & post a few more photos soon :beer:

I suspect that you're describing the HDR processing effect. It can be overdone but this looks just right in my eyes.

Sorry not familiar with that HDR effect ?
I tend not to use effects on photos myself. Just as true to life as I can..
But after looking at some of the recent photos I've taken I'm wondering if my camera has used this effect ??
Gonna check my settings....

PS These are not processed using HDR technique, just standard RAW images processed in Adobe LightRoom then sharpened slightly in Photoshop, they may be a little over processed but that's my style :eusa-think:

My mistake. These don't look HDR but the first one did to my eyes. Great shots whatever and an absolute beast of a car. I'd love a shot!!

I was talking to a guy how new a lot about this car & he reckons it throws flames out of the top mounted exhausts when it's accelerating flat out . . . . :o

Unfortunately I never heard it start up never mind flying off into the sun-set . . . . Shame :cry:
