It's a fantastically composed shot! Without knowing the background and your skills I'd have just assumed it was a true picture. Well done! 👏👏👏

Now, it's time to take it to the next level: adding yourself in period clothing posing for the camera while leaning on the car!! 😉

The next two models come from the 50's. Two gorgeous black diecast roadsters from Schuco and Minichamps.

The classic Porsche 356A speedster 1955 from Schuco (we saw that beauty in Top Gun) and the
Magnificent Mercedes Benz 300 SL Roadster (W198) 1958 from Minichamps

Both black with red interior

Enjoy

The next model is a very special model from Minichamps and one of my top best three from the 30's.

The Hispano-Suiza H6B Dubonnet Xenia

The Hispano-Suiza H6B Dubonnet Xenia is a one-off luxury car made by Spanish automobile manufacturer Hispano-Suiza for French pilot and racing car driver André Dubonnet in 1938. The car was built on the chassis of the Hispano-Suiza H6B, however it uses the larger, more powerful engine from the H6C and an entirely new body design by luxury coachbuilder Jacques Saoutchik.
These are some real-size photos of this huge-size beauty

The next model is a masterpiece made by Almost Real
The Pagani Zonda F 2005.
Maybe the best Pagani made so far or among the best, considering the Autoart signature Zondas

Very demanding photoshoot using extra bright lights for better visualisation of the black matt body of the model.

Enjoy

Being not a fan of the Zonda nor of matt black paint on cars I can say that you mastered the photographic challenge with excellence.

There is only one way to get decent pictures of a black model with black background:
Light, light and more light!

Well done, Marios!! (y)

Thank you very much @vulpex ! 3 huge led lamps at 6k Kelvin were used for these photos. The next lighter thing would be the sun o_O . But thankfully i didn't move the studio out in the yard, i also think that the result is satisfied enough!

If you have facebook, there are some groups where you should post your amazing pictures. I can suggest you a few. You deserve much more recognition than here!
That's very kind of you Cristi! Much appreciated! No, i don't use fb, as for the recognition i think i'm ok with that. Your positive comments is my extra push for improvement and make me really happy! Believe me, this is what it counts for me! ;) 🙏👌

The next two models are the Koenigsegg Agera R by Frontiart and the Pagani Zonda LM by Peako.

An impressive history fact about Agera R is that on 2 September 2011, during test sessions in Ängelholm, the Agera R broke six world land speed records for a production car, including 0–300 km/h (0–186 mph) in 14.53 seconds, and 0–300–0 km/h in only 21.19 seconds. The braking performance required to maintain this record is enabled in part by the Agera's stability, demonstrated by Koenigsegg test driver and drivetrain technician Robert Serwanski, who was recorded by passenger Rob Ferretti (founder of the group "Super Speeders") braking from 300 km/h to 0 without holding the steering wheel.
It was named Hypercar of the Year in 2010 by Top Gear magazine.

As for the Zonda, throughout the years some customers decided to start special projects with Pagani Automobili to build special editions of some of the Zonda models. The Zonda LM belongs to the "One-Off" series of the company and was the second to last edition of the Zonda made in 2015. The car was commissioned by Argentine Alejandro G. Roemmers, an heir to a multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical company fortune. The custom Zonda is based on the 760 RS model and pays tribute to the iconic 24 Hours of Le Mans race. Unlike other special edition Zondas, the LM has revised headlamps (only Zonda which has different headlights) and an even bigger rear spoiler than the original 760RS. The LM also has the tricolore stripes depicting the Italian flag on the right side of the bonnet and the German flag on the other side. The rest of the body is built on standard 760 RS specifications. The car has a carbon exterior. A Roadster version of Zonda LM, dubbed Zonda LM Roadster, was commissioned by the same owner, with aero specifications identical to that of the coupe.

I hope you'll enjoy the photos of these two exclusive hypercars.
