This BMW Mini was spotted in Parnell, a chic suburb of Auckland where Aurelie gets her nails done every few weeks and I go out exploring with my camera.
Where are the other chics? I would cut that white line at the lower part of this shot. Jason would underexpose the house a little more, but I would not. Maybe its fit from the HDR processing.

Shuva is becoming quite the post processing critic :P
Wonder what year this car is from?

You cropped the mini ! It is already a very small car ! If you crop it, it will disappear !
I like this photo. Good composition, and excellent colors ! Blue + White, it is sober and clean.

Excellent!!! You followed the rule of thirds perfectly in this picture. When u move your eyes to the top portion they bounce back to the blue car as the colors on the top portion are dull. This is how you can elevate your object.

I like mini cars, they are so nice. Good contrast beetwen blue and white. Attention Aaron is back in the town.

The sun is so bright in NZ. It makes all the pictures come alive.

that is interesting that you cropped the car

Wow a lot of (good) critique on this image. Shuva - I thought about cropping out the bottom line but I liked how it tied the road together with the white lines in the church. As for cropping the mini, there was ugly drain on the right and a window on the left that I didn't like so I cropped both out and shaved the poor mini in the process.

Nice contrast, made a small mini look even smaller :) Tight crop

Actually I think this made the mini look large because of the tighter crop. Love the concept because of that.

nice contrast and interesting composition.

Yeah, the photo is great, but that's not a BMW Mini (Bini) it's a Classic Mini.
I'd suggest you research your facts.

Oh, yes. Thank you, thank you. I'd rank this right up there with some of your very best. And, as usual, I must allegorize a bit. The contrast is esp. significant to me: the old-fashioned building = tradition, even spirituality, order (straight lines), simplicity, elegance (window) vs. the modern auto = innovation, mechanical proficiency, defiance (square, boxy design), complexity, dignity (deep blue color, BMW-look). The white (church?) encourages me in my reverence for the past, for human craftsmanship, and for cultural stability -- the triumph of humanism. The blue vehicle provokes me to admire innovations, industrial efficiency, and capacity for travel and for speed. The top two thirds tells me to "stay put"; the bottom (and dominant) one third tells me to "get up and go." So I'll stay put and, with my cursor, get up and go.
Best wishes to you and your family. We are determined to make it on to NZ on our next trip to Australia to visit our son.
