This shot was inspired by a poster of a Jaguar XJ220. The car was black against a black background with just a very subtle outline of the car. That is what I was going for here.

Very nice Mugmar. Id suggest a slightly lower shooting angle to make the car seem bigger and reduce the toy look. This shot prompted me to shoot Darth Vader for another entry here. Your suggestion of an outline gave me the idea of the lighting. Thanks.

Thanks all for the comments. Bynx, If we set up again during this challenge, I will try a lower angle and maybe a 3/4 front view just for fun.
