I wish I had more of these images. I find both the headlights and/or the tail lights of some vehicles to be exquisite pieces of art. One just needs to isolate either the headlight or the tail light from the rest of the vehicle and the form, to some extent the color and the sense of texture combine to create a striking piece of art (at least to my eye).

This was the headlight of VW Beetle that I happened to spot in a parking lot.

You definitely have an artistic eye as your post supports your efforts flawlessly. Love the subtle details - especially the little sparkle lights surrounding the headlight. The headlight resembles someone that is about to doze off to sleep with the eyelid starting to close over the eye.

Well seen Jan, I also like the small half ring of lights round the main light I also like the shape of the fitting and the way it blends in to the body of the car
Best regards

It must be a modern VW I think, much more detail than an older model would have, just right for the theme Jan,
