Lotus Seven (2016 Weaverville Lions Club Annual Classic Car Show)
Image by Kᵉⁿ Lᵃⁿᵉ
The Lotus Seven is a small, simple, lightweight two-seater open-top sports car produced by Lotus Cars (initially called Lotus Engineering) between 1957 and 1972. It was designed by Lotus founder Colin Chapman and has been considered the embodiment of the Lotus philosophy of performance through low weight and simplicity. The original model was highly successful with more than 2,500 cars sold,due to its attraction as a road legal car that could be used for clubman racing. After Lotus ended production of the Seven, Caterham bought the rights and today Caterham make both kits and fully assembled cars based on the original design. The Lotus Seven design has spawned a host of imitations on the kit car market, generally called Sevens or sevenesque roadsters. [source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lotus_Seven]
This image was created from multiple exposures blended together in Photoshop CS6 layers using the "Lighten" blend mode. All exposures were taken with a single Paul C. Buff Einstein strobe with a 22" beauty dish attached to a Elinchrom boom arm and a 3-stop B&W ND filter attached to my lens. If you send me a FlickrMail message, I’ll be more than happy to send you some information on mostly how I photograph this style and what equipment I use, along with some YouTube video links that help explain this process.

– Site area: 25,000.00㎡
– Building area: 12,980.00㎡
– Total floor area: 70,190.00㎡
– Architectural Style: Structural Expressionism (High-Tech Architecture). It’s an incorporating elements of high-tech industry and technology into building design, including the prominent display of the building’s technical and functional components, and an orderly arrangement and use of pre-fabricated elements. Moreover, Glass walls and steel frames were also immensely popular.
– Structure Material: Reinforced concrete & Steel columns.
– Structure System: It’s based on a square plan with four wishbone-shaped concrete bow-string arches columns at the corners which define the upward curve.
The braces collect forces from intermediate concrete floors and transfer them to corner columns, allowing more weak columns to be used. To control distorting deflections, the K-braces combined with tie-beams which were sequentially post-tensioned as construction proceeded upwards.
– Environmental Design:
The facade is protected from glare and solar heat gain (due to the solar reflection of sun) by deep aerofoil-shaped Aluminium blades fixed to it with projecting brackets.
At the top of the Tower, spaces between arch and beam structure have been designed to integrate ceiling, lighting and air diffuser system
There is thermal ice storage. i.e. Ice is created and stored at night in a rock chamber and used to cool interior spaces during the heat of the afternoon
