Ever since I first saw a Citroen about 50 years ago, I have considered it the ugliest car I have ever seen. This one still maintains that rating!.

#2 is the Nissan Cube.
#3 is the first Scion "boxy" model that came out.

Ok how about this one....
My son was having trouble getting his 1/24 scale diecast car to start. I said he was out of gas. He said it was engine trouble. We were both wrong.

Thats not a composite Calr. Its a single shot. The car is on a small board that I made a road. By positioning my son and the car it appears he is actually looking inside. Its called Forced Perspective. The closer the car is to the camera the larger it appears relative to the background which stays where it is. The actual distance from the car to my son was about 20 feet. The only photoshop was blending the fake road with the real pavement and cloning my sons arm so it goes into the engine area instead of behind the passenger fender. Its one shot straight out of the camera. if you visit my flickr site there are examples showing how this was done. www.flickr.com/photos/paul-mitchell
