^ Agreed. Audi makes the best luxury sedans IMO. Congrats! (And nice photos too)

P.S. good to see you got the 6-speed. Manual FTW.

Cool, thanks guys! I'll look around for this lens!

+1 on the great choice Armin. That Audi is beautiful. Makes me miss my 2004 A4. They're great cars and the level of luxury you get is unmatched.

^ Wish you could have gotten some of Griffey before he left. That swing is legendary.

What lens were you using for these shots? I see 200mm focal length, so I'm thinking a 70-200.

I did earlier this year

Yep, 70-200mm for all of these (except first wide shots of course).

Congrats on the new car Armin. So why didn't you get a S ? j/k

This is my first try with self shot rolling shots. I posted a thread in the Gallery, but would like the pro's input. Shot with a 30 second timer and using the stopwatch on my BB. It got a little noisy trying to add definition to the splash/brown water.

Still saving for a new Camera. Think I am going with the T2i.

I know you guys are probably getting tired of my ugly little jeep cluttering the shots of beautiful cars in this thread, but its all I've got at the moment.

haha thanks The S4 was about $10-12k more than I had to spend unfortunately

As for your shot, I think it's fantastic! Very good creative thinking to get the type of shot you want from your equipment. The noise and such is definitely your equipment's shortcomings, and not your own. Given all that, I have no qualms with giving you the stamp:



Great work! I can't want to see what you can do with a DSLR

Pretty nice shots overall! The mixed shadow/sun of the first photo throws things off a bit, as does the overexposed sky in the second photo. You've also got some power lines in the background of that second photo as well. I like the last three, although I probably would've had the car facing into the frame rather than out in the second to last shot.

Thanks armin, its funny you mention the shadow/sun in the first shot. Not 30 seconds before I snapped the shot, the sun dipped behind some trees and threw my subject in the shade I was hoping that the blurred background would stop the power lines from being distracting, but to a trained eye they obviously dont go unnoticed, and I tried bringing out the sky, but that was the best I could do without combining two exposures.
I would also have had it pointing inwards in the second to last, but I was limited in vehicle placement in trying to keep everything out of the shadow and away from distracting things in the background.

And just for fun


Also, Im toying with the idea of upgrading to a D90 soon. What are our thoughts on that? My understanding is there is a significant difference in picture quality, as well as the ability to shoot with higher ISO's due to a better noise reduction system, then theres automatic HDR bracketing, faster shutter speeds, etc. If Bought the body, I would probably sell my current setup to pick up a 18-200mm ~3.5 lens

Its summer time! Time to get out and take pictures

Im in love with these first 2 shots, what do you guys think?






The damn sun dipped behind the opposite cliff wall just a moment before this shot, imagine the shadow not being there




Just kind of a fun shot, I like how it turned out although a little soft and underexposed

Three new shot from yesterday, the sky had just started clearing up after a covered morning. It's been a while that I wanted to do a puddle reflection shot and now it's done. On the 2nd shot I had to deal with the depth of the pit in the background, backing more to get the whole car in the shot would have cut too much of the machinery making it look awkward imo. Third shot is centered because of the pipes each sides.

Another rig shot... it's kind of tough finding a nice background for a silver car, everything blends in!

Bored at work. So I'll put in my two cents.

Acingteam: Can I borrow your rig? lol, very cool shot. But I see what you mean about the car blending in - the car certainly doesn't pop against that gray building. Find a wider angle lens yet?

wrxSIN: I like everything about this photo - except the roof of the car creates an uncomfortable tangent with the horizon line. I think if the color of the sky wasn't so close to the color of the roof, it wouldn't matter as much. Looks like the perfect time of day to shoot though, the car looks awesome.

Hmmm... on the other hand this one came out perfect. Maybe it was a dim lighting situation after all. I apologize this isn't automotive related, but I thought it was a cool shot haha.

haha only if you want to come up to CT. I'm still looking for one... I think I'm going to go with Tokina 12-24mm. Just looking around to see if I can snag a used one for cheap.

The Tokina 12-24 f/4 is awesome! it makes everything VERY distorted on the edges @ 12mm, but that should be expected, but it's a great lens!
