Along The Wall by notbland Along The Wall by notbland
2006 Cadillac XLR.
Shenandoah National Park, Virginia. May 10, 2010.

Series complete.


Man, you guys did NOT like this car. I thought I couldn't fail with a series- until I started posting this one, and received a grand total of... what, eleven comments? Holy hell.

Don't worry, dedicated fans; it's all high exotics from here out. ;P

I just read your post about people not loving this car, I will say it is one of my favorite, I love the XLR! Beautiful shot as always! Silver is my favorite color for them :)

The second generation XLR-V was the best looking trim; I think I woulda struck a few more chords with the fans if I had shot the beefed up version...

You only got eleven comments for such a dramatic image of a Cadillac zooming along the edge of a cliff? Shame on those people who failed to comment on this image. I think it's one of your best.

it probably doesn't help that the car is beige. yeah, it's a car which evokes strong opinions. I liked it so much i picked one up last year. ...it was more practical than most of the other cars i was looking at.

great stuff as always!!

Yeah, that champagne color didn't help much. A dark red however, would look perfect on the car. Earth tones... not so much.

But I'm glad you like it! And the photo. ;)

Wow. Has to be one of my favourites. The movement, the colours, everything just comes together perfectly.

And yeah, the XLR is really under-appreciated. Which is a real shame, because it is pretty good looking. Well, to my eyes, at least.

Looks slightly odd when you can't see the driver, though. But then, maybe that was the effect you were going for, so can't really complain.

The driver was there, obviously, but the A-pillar obstructs all proof that he was there. But I agree, it does look a bit weird.

I'm glad you like this one so much though. Thanks. :)

Haha, no... I'm pretty sure the XLR is universally looked down upon. But I thought regardless of the car, there were some decent shots in the series. Nobody cared to let me know, however.
