Well folks, today I was privilaged enough to be allowed to photograph a gentleman's 348ts. But what made this one even better was that it was out in the open where I could get all kinds of good angles!!
He met me in a parking lot of an abondoned mall and we chatted and I snapped off a few (30+) pics. He did not want any identifying features photographed so I had to edit his tag out of the pics and did not write down the s/n of the 348. It was his wish and I respect that.
At any rate...follow the link to see a BEAUTIFUL Nero with Tan int. 348ts!! 20 of the 30 pictures have been uploaded so far.



P.S. I used the higher resolution setting on my camera to get BIG pics! 30"x20" prints can be ordered from them. Their huge! :)

I wish more people would do that, out of simple respect. I tip my hat off to you. I automatically do that when I take pictures of any car, no matter who, or what the car is. I don't know how one could go about it, but there are ways of searching private info through one's license plate, so I eliminate the chance altogether by wiping it out of the picture.

If people ask for it I will do it, otherwise I don't. The reason? I make a lot of pics so it would be a lot of work to do it with let's say 500 pics after a event. And what use does it have? Plates are public. Everybody can see them. When I cover the plates, and everybody would do that, the crooks would go to the events themselves and photograph the cars they want. That way they can even look or the colour looks as good in flash as it does on the pics. Just like VINs, some people start to panic when you write them down. Why? It is a regulation that you have to read it in the front window. Why should I not write it down, when everybody can read it?

Offcourse, when the owner asks not to do it, I won't, but otherwise, I don't see a problem.

Nice pics 360 Spyder

Good to see someone enthusiastic about Ferrari's premier model. :green:

Unquestionably, in fact undeniably, the finest motor vehicle made during the 20th century... :wink:

if i would have to change every pic removing license plates, that would take me a VERY long time, some of you know my shooting habbit,
besides like bob said, it's public, the car is in a public place and i just don't care, if an owner asks me to pay attention to it, then i will ofcourse respect it, else i won't waste my time in it and besides it looks ugly on a pic, and i always notice it cuz for some reason it bothers me and then i start to think what else did they change on this pic

I would also add that if you pick up a Forza/Cavallino or Scuderia (and I'm sure some Euro mags I don't know) you will find in all of them they do not edit out the plate for them, why is the internet any different? Just to make sure I don't eat my own words I checked my Scuderias, not sure about the others.

yeah i guess it all depends on the person. Some ppl wouldn't want their car plates to be known all over the net. Especially if the plates are so easy to remember and marked. One such plate was an Australian registered F-355, which caught my eye...the plate was: TAXSUX in caps and over black with the font being white. I didn't get to snap the photo because i was in a rush that day, but with such a showy plate, it wouldn't be so hard to remember. Besides everyone wants nice plates to go with their cars for the same reason they buy those cars in the first place.
EVO 3NZO is another which i think is a nicely chosen plate. Jay Kay's Nero Enzo's plate is V17 JET...which accurately defines what the car does and how it does it. Wish i could get those kind of vanity plates back home.
