    The Malibu *(New Pics added 10-28)*

    So I got to lookin at those pics I took of my Malibu the day after I took her home....they're nice and all, but not really all that flattering IMO. I've kinda decided to indulge in a little casual photography and decided to start up my own lil thread here as a repository for all my pics. I dunno, might have discovered a new hobby too? (Maybe one day I can sit right up there w/rmodys? )


    Location: Walnut Grove Park
    (Pics were taken in 2-3 different locations around the park)

    Nice. I think I like those chrome wheels best on that silver color. Once again congrats on the new car.

    Yeah, great color/wheel choice, and may I be the first to compliment you on the location you chose to exploit your new past time. Where is this Walnut Grove Park, anyway? It seems to be a beautiful location...

    It's in the SW corner of Omaha. You wouldn't figure a park like that could fit in the middle of the suburban landscape, surrounded by a housing development, with a strip mall not far away......it's like a mini-oasis though

    Beautiful car, I lived in Omaha for three years and I have no idea where that park is. Is it in Millard?

    Fantastic. Oh, I almost forgot! Beautiful ride, man. I'm afraid working minimum wage isn't going to help me get any closer to purchasing something like that...

    I absolutely LOVE the new Malibu. Absolutely beautiful.

    I just hate ONE angle. I don't like the area between the rear window and the rear windshield. Looks bloated. But that's not nearly enough to offset the awesome that the rest of this car is.

    I kind of agree on the angle, though that part can be attributed solely to the design IMO.

    Now that I have a good collection of shots here, I can use them as sort of a reference point for when I go out to other places w/a camera (so I know which ones work, which don't etc). The 5th & 6th ones up (starting @ the bottom) are 2 of my favs

    It's funny. Everytime I see real world pics of the Malibu, they always look alittle different. Same from me though: great wheel/colour choice. The size of the wheels gives the body more substance IMHO.

    Great pictures, the car looks fantastic. I can't help but thinking what nice vehicles the new Malibus are whenever they pass. And, to repeat what everybody else has said, great color and wheel combo.

    Nice pics and nice car. and trust me Photography is a fun hobby to get into. I got into it during my first few years of college and I've been having fun ever since. And my big break in the spy photo world came when I ruined VW's plans and got shots of the VW Routan a few days before it was officially unveiled. I hope you do decide to pursue photography as a hobby and try and experiment with different angles and backgrounds
