Instead of going out so much, northern swedes seem to like to take out their fancy cars in the evening. I took the Picture of this one in the afternoon, but i am sure in the evening it will be one of the many nice rides that cruise through the City.
That nice Mercedes, a Dodge Charger 71, even a cadillac i saw on the streets, Lulea was really full of them, a town of fancy cars!
The difference to other cars are often the headlights, as they might have extra ones, like this one does. The reason is simple, for all the Long day time in the summer, there is a lot of darkness in the winter, in December around 22 hours.

gotta love car photos in the city!
lots to see and admire here.
the Mercedes has that silvery glow and shimmer, its as if it just came off the assembly line.
the clouds in the bg and the wide angle view makes it smart.

Keeping up with the car theme lately, this is great! What a beauty too, the low point of view and angle taken gives a good sense of form. The metallic sheen stands out well, even in the black & white format. I think the backdrop of clouds does well to enhance some of the contrast and gives a soft touch to the otherwise "hardened" elements. I actually like the heavy shadow under the car, looks a bit to raise it off of the pavement. I'm no expert, but I can't see anything wrong with this shot, nice job! :) Enjoy the day ahead.
All the best,

Beautiful scene in black & white. It should be good to see that collection of classic cars in the afternoon.

Excellent composition, nice captured.

Hello Franz - B&W is a good choice here, it gives the shot a retro feel. I like the composition taken from a low POV and showing off the front of the car (which is nicely angled) to advantage. Nice work. Warm regards Rosemary

Nice B & W wide angle shot.
Love them classic Benzes.

un bianco e nero di ottima fattura sia per la perfetta scala di grigi che sono inclusi nella foto, sia, soprattutto, per il bel soggetto ripreso in maniera estremamente originale e tale da farlo diventare il protagonista assoluto rispetto allo sfondo retrostante.
Un ottimo uso del grandangolo che denota buona conoscenza della tecnica ed una perfetta messa a fuoco sono motivi di pregio di questo scatto.
Unu ottimo scatto per il quale ti faccio i miei complimenti
Ciao e buona giornata

a very impressive composition that has exalted the front of the Mercedes, its design, shapes and shiny textures. The car dominates the frame and the scenery and is framed by the sides of the road very effectively. I like how you have followed the many attractive perspectives until the spot they converge in the distance. The lighting and the monochrome have been managed excellently. Congratulations and thank you! Thank you also for your comment!
All the best, have a great weekend,

This is very good, the composition and the b&w conversion. I like your low pov - perfect to frame the car and the light was very good. Good shot!
