Continuing my scav hunt for the vehicles of rural Tuscany.
The medieval centre of Roccatederighi has a city plan that is at least 400 years old. The Fiat 500 is a mechanical design that is about 40 years old. Finding the 500 a long way behind the city gate and realizing that it must have travelled all that way in alleys just as narrow as the one in the picture made me understand that this old city plan was made to match the design from Fiat made so many years later. Fantastic!
The special frame was made to correct the tilt in a picture that canīt be cropped. DOF on purpose set on the car, not enough light to get a longer DOF without tripod.

I found your collection of 500's very special, Ebbe, do you work for Fiat ;-)
Smart sollution you found to the problem of the tilt, it is really hard to crop. And I wonder, how many mlore half-cars you have in your arsenal.
I like it very much.

Nice composition, but I don't like the tilted crop.
I guess the picture was not tilted, you made a tilted crop didn't you?

Again a good shot showing Fiat in its natural habitat. Everything is so Italian. Framing is OK, except that I'd prefer it a bit thinner.

I really like THIS one the best so far and I can hardly tell you why!
Is it the crop on the car that with its 'whiteness contrasts the rest of a colour setup in the frame, or perfect DOF that shows an old architecture of the steep streets and houses mainly built of local stone, or little urban and typical details of a Mediterranean place built often on a slope... I don't know.
The only thing I miss here is a cat that peeps out behind the car wheel...
PS. I like the framing as well!

I've always been fan of these absolutely charming, small towns and villages...Anywhere.
And this one is no exception.
Picture..? I LOVE IT !
Tilt...? I LOVE IT !
Long time no see, Ebbe.
That is... you on my site...(chuckling)

the idea to include this part of fiat 500 in your framing is great.
