Is this complete chance or was this or similar the inspiration for "January"?

Is it me or does it look slightly off level, with a slight lean from right to left as viewed?

All sorts of things wrong with the Audi shot, some seriously amateur photoshopping for a start.

I'm sure audi must be breaking some copyright law lol. If my picture has inspired the one by audit hen I'm happy with that. The credit would go to my photographer. I picked the locations.

I'd be contacting audi kenny! Defo a blatant copy of your pic! Worst thing is that it's actually a shit attempt with all that money they have behind them!

Different if they actually used my picture but people will always steal or be inspired by other people's ideas. Will maybe ask them if they want my photographers number.

My guess is neither photographer could claim the underlying technique originates with them. My hunch is somewhere there is a picture of a red car in a tunnel, interior lit and red glow of lights that predates both. Probably called "red car glow in tunnel".

Nick Williams apparently took the B8 photo, one of twelve for a Christmas series for Audi. Given the timing, I would say the two are pure coincidence.

I'm still waiting and hoping my other 2 calendars will arrive.
The one I got for a friend arrived in time for xmas, but I have a feeling that the envelope containing the other two might have disintegrated in the post - the one envelope I did receive was made of brown tissue paper or suchlike.

Anyone else still waiting?

That is odd. They were all sent in thick brown envelopes, cardboard braced and corners and seams taped.

I spoke about an hour too soon.
Got back to work today and they were here all along!
Paypal must have used my alt address.

Happy now

The similarity in those two images is astounding! Got my calendar and it looks great. Pride of place on the garage wall
