Rodster11 by a longshot, I made that my Desktop Wallpaper it was so good! Thats really a very well done shot with good placement and an adequate but not overdone amount of environment in the background. Looks like its doing 100mph sitting still.

I went for StealthV. I was disappointed by all the painted wheels and the Roadster by no control of his had those ugly stickers on his windshield. Maybe inspection stickers. I love black too!:thumbsup:

Thanks everybody for the complimentary comments on my photo. After reading the comments here about the inspection stickers on the windshield, I photoshopped them off, and it is an improvement.

In Pennsylvania, inspection stickers are mandatory, and since I have to live with them every day I didn't give much thought about how they might detract from the appearance of the photo.

If you'd like to see more of my photos, check out my gallery here.

Thanks again!

Rodster!


It's black, therefore it's faster.

It's in PA, therefore he gets bonus points for driving it on the worst roads in the country.

And, it's black.

Does it have to be a CTS-V or can it be a regular CTS to get nominated for Car of the Month?

Rodster, I just looked at your pic again, and I think Cadillac should put that on the cover of their brouchure, not just the magazine.


Do you take photos for a living, cause that's damn professional. :coolgleam

Thanks again for the compliments on the photo. Yes, I do photography for my employers website and promotional materials, as well as video production
and DVD authoring. That's not my primary function there however, as I spend more time as IT Director for the company and on general "All Around Tech Guy"
duties, but I have spent much of my life in self study and the practice of photography, digital in particular.

It would be a dream come true to be able to contribute some photography to Cadillac for their promos, as I've been a Cadillac fan since I was in my early
teens (many years ago ;)). I think I have a decent eye for aesthetics, but then again, Cadillac cars do provide pretty conducive subject material for good looking
photos, and my enthusiasm for this incredible CTS-V I have the pleasure of owning certainly helps too when photographing it.
majax - I like the leaf blowing idea you had, I may try that this Fall when the leaves are on the ground again.

RobertCTS - the ugy stickers are gone - I'll try to remember to avoid that in the future.

ktills45 - the comment about the roads in PA is certainly true, especially when driving the V on I-80 going west, I hate to
subject the car to that moon-crater-like surface, although it does pretty well with it considering the tight suspension setup.​

Rodster, welcome aboard. I must confess I voted for Kim's silver V, because I've always liked lighter colors, but if I were to choose a black V it would certainly be YOURS. :thumbsup: Yours is impressive indeed! Truth be told, they are all impressive and difficult to impose favorites.

Congrats!! :)

The autumn colors did it for me. It creates a nice reflection off a black car, regardless of the make, honestly.

But I'd suggest that every owner to personalize their car a little more by made changing the wheels or somethig to that effect. Nothing drastic, mind you. But after awhile, it tends to looks like every other CTS-V ripping around town.

sorry but for me
kimcheejeegae you have my vote

BLACK IS WACK & Grey All day
nothing personal but grey stands out because it shows true car definition. Black hides the sleak body lines that I feel car lovers like to see.
