I have a theory, but to see if it’s right I need your help. Please tell me which orientation of this image you prefer and – if you possibly can – why. This is the first of a new series of images, I’m going to call it SeriesX for now and will give a prize to the person closest to my working title.

This local garage, Stevens Motors, specialises in volkswagens and my family has been going there longer than I remember. I can’t recommend them too much. They’re efficient and friendly, they know what they’re doing and are honest at their own expense (once, I remember being told firmly that the car would rust before the part I had asked to be replaced would stop working). people and with me been I really enjoyed this shoot.

I really enjoyed the shoot – the garage is large and light, Felipe is a wonderful and talented artist, the bustle of a real working garage added to the fun and the surroundings look fantastic. Processing the images have also helped me understand how I can improve the next batch so I hope the owner will let me go back.
