Hey guys! Got my Danica #10 Elite earlier this week and I am just now getting around to taking some pics of it. This is an awesome car, love the colors and I think it is a great "milestone" car. I ended up with number 75 out of 500, which I thought was pretty cool given how late in the game I did my pre-order. Here's the pics!

I think it is my flash and the color of the numbers and hair not mixing very well. I took several and this seemed to be the best one.

Yep, most likely the flash. It's cool though.

The difference can be explained by the flash. These decals are not entirely smooth, which you will only notice on flat paint diecast however. The light from the flash normally is diffracted and the color looks "right"

If it is bounced straight back to the camera the difference in color of light for the flash (about 5000°K) and for the ambient light (daylight, somewhere between 2500°K and 6700°K depending in the time of day, or artificial light, mostly around 2500°K-3500°K) causes the orange in this case to look slightly off.

The issue will be less apparent with less contrasting colors but green and orange are contrasting colors (direct opposites in color theory) and both are quite strong on this car. To prevent these issues you would have to relocate the flashgun, which will not work on a compact camera because you will move the camera along with it.

Great add though. I see you like your elites :biggrin:

Thanks for the info, that is pretty cool and yes I love my Elites! They have the best detail and they usually look the best.
