This shot was actually taken inside my house. The picture is of my other hobby which is model cars. And my personal favorite car. The 1969-70 Chevelle. During winter there is not too much you can do outside, so I have plenty of time to work on them. I set the model car on my table and set my camera on my tripod. Set the timer to 5 seconds. And hit the car with my flashlight with a cloth in front of it in a few different locations. After about 100 shots, I found the one I wanted. Hope everyone likes the picture, and any helpful suggestions, always welcome.

I'm stumped. For some reason, this looks like a model car to me. Can't tell if it's life-size or not. The little dent makes me think it's real, but the rest of it doesn't. Nice pic either way.

Good shot but I think the crop is too tight

Is this a model car? Cute idea.
