We believe this is the new 2015 Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic, so reports Rick Conti. And we thank Rick for sharing this picture.

NOTE, THIS RICK CONTI ORIGINALLY POSTED/CREDIT PICTURE TURNED OUT TO BE A PHOTOSHOP. THREAD NOW CLOSED.


Do you like ?

Have you ordered it?

Will you order it now that you have seen it?

I really like it, I think it will really turn heads going down the road, but I'm going to stick with arctic white.

I just got in line to order a 2015 3LT Z51 convertible in Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic last Wednesday from Les Stanford. I am happy with my choice now :). Now to see when they are going to be able to produce the color on a car.

I do not, as a generality, love orange Corvettes, but this color is outstanding. Even thought for an hour whether to abandon my VY addiction. But my addiction won.

This orange is, as Annie said to me, "the perfect orange." It has elements of copper and bronze to it. GORGEOUS color!

Daytona Sunrise Orange Metalic.

I like it very much with the Carbon Flash accents. Not sure with chrome bling in place of the blk wheels etc.

STUNG:cool:

That is probably the only orange car I would buy.

I don't gravitate towards orange on cars... this one is an exception. Better than Jaguar's Firesand, IMHO. Very rich, and yes copper and bronze tones in it. My wife and I just saw this picture and both had the same reaction. I'd like to see other pictures for continuity.

Joegovette, welcome aboard and this color would look great on a C7 vert!

THAT'S A CRAZY THING TO SEE THAT !!!
THIS PICTURE IS MY JOB AND WAS POSTED BY ME IN THIS THREAD
http://www.stingrayforums.com/forum...daytona-sunrise-orange-metallic-thread-3.html

Post number 30

MOREOVER MY NICK NAME IS ON THE CAR, JUST NEAR THE REAR WHEEL

I HATE THE OPPORTUNISTS AND THIS RICK CONTI IS ONE OPPORTUNIST.

I DECIDE FROM NOW TO NOT PARTICIPATE ANYMORE TO THIS FORUM FOR SHARING MY JOBS, AS I DID FOR THE SHARK GREY AND THIS ORANGE COLOR

Very angry :mad: :mad:

SwisStingray, we will never know who copied your work and gave it to Conti, or if even more people were involved in the copying.

I am sure that Elegant did not know, and only posted this thread in good conscience. Once he comes along and finds your posts, I am sure he is a man of such high character he will contact you to make things right, and also contact Conti to tell him that he is posting YOUR picture.

Please consider that once something is posted on ANY public forum, anyone can go copy it and take it to places you never intended.

I hope this unfortunate circumstance which has happened in this case will not prevent all of us others here on the forum from being able to admire your photoshopping work in the future. You are a true master of that art, so much so that masses of people have been led to believe that your work was the true color. Your work looks so fantastically realistic!

Please reconsider, as I would love to see more of your art in the future!

I see now in the Rick Conti Website that it was an error to publish it but not because the picture was owning by another person but because it could not be the right color.

What makes sense is to avoid to pick-up every picture at any place to follow it to plenty of web pages, specially when some additional personal job have been done on it.

Update: Conti's site now shows that he now knows he posted the picture in error.

While I understand your indigence, you should be well aware that your "ownership" rights, once it's posted online, only extend to watermarks or trademarks attached to the photo. As long as someone copies it intact, which means including your watermark/trademark they have done nothing wrong. I don't believe anyone claimed it was their picture, just a picture of the new color, which it was represented as by someone who posted it on Facebook, where he claims to have gotten it from.

Perhaps you learned a valuable lesson, things posted on the Internet have a life of their own and ownership is a fleeting concept.

SwissStingray:

I too love and appreciate your photoshopping abilities, and hope this situation does not stop you from posting future renditions....it is much appreciated by many of us and invaluable to see a POTENTIAL new color on an existing car....I love the "what if" scenarios.

It is also human nature to want to come in first....to be the guy who first discovered something among the public or your group of friends. It provides some level of bragging rights....and...when you are the first in a group of enthusiasts (such as Corvette fans), it's an added bonus.

I am personal friends with Mr. Conti - and I know well of his integrity and devotion to the Corvette Community. His intent is to share things with the community as he finds them...to spread the news, as it were. He will typically give credit to authors, photographers, etc. If he didn't initially in this instance, it was most likely due to his not knowing the source of the photo; rather than an intentional act.

I also want to add that this has been a tough week for Rick - he lives about 3 hours from his job, and found out late last week his 11 year old was having seizures and was going to the hospital. Rick rushed to be at his son's side, and spent the next few days with him. Any of us who are parents can appreciate what he must have been going through.....

This put Rick in "catch-up mode" at work, including getting caught up in happenings in the Corvette world, which also most likely contributed to his posting your picture without performing his usual due diligence.

Again, I believe no bad intentions here....just a case of circumstances conspiring against him.

That photo was originally a Crystal Red from page 11 of the Crystal Red Tintcoat thread posted by member Traverse.
