Yep, in the same 3/4 front view I feel the pic comes great if you sit down and take the pic, like the first one that I uploaded. I think that really bring out the F10 design.

Earlier I somehow did not like the front and felt the back looked terrific and now as I see it I like the front more and more. I don't think I will ever get bored of this design.

I suppose you meant this one. Almost got on a tree as I was looking for that angle ( cannot really describe ) from front to the back side view. Call me crazy but I am going to have tough time stopping taking pics of this car.

First angle hands down. Great light and it highlights the curves. I'm going to try and copy it!

Here is one I took a few weeks ago. Its hard to take a bad shot of this car.

The 3/4 pic was NICE

The straight on pic IMO would have looked better if it you only had the angel eyes.

Thanks!

The crazy thing is that shot is only angel eyes. The headlight lenses are just reflecting the flash. I was originally shooting this without the angel eyes and had to turn them on to balance out the reflected light.

These are my favorite shots so far, partly because they were probably the hardest to take

I'm going to reply using a bunch of Titanium Silver images that I am familiar with. Among the others mentioned in this thread, I love these, from a considerable elevation:




And then there's the full side view, both straight on and from an elevation:




And for the rear 3/4 view, I prefer that it be straight on or higher (too low gives the wrong accent):
