    Nice picture, I like the contrast between the bright colours and the greys of the sky, monochrome might suit this picture as well?


    I know nothing about boats but they are very photogenic :cooldude:

    Thanks

    I had trouble getting the lighting right. I still think it's off a little but maybe it's just the best my 300$ camera can do.

    Air suspension dude- they can raise and lower the ride height via a control panel in the cabin. ;)

    Still looks ridiculous though, doesn't it? :rolleyes:

    I took some hardware snaps earlier today, I'll post them in a little bit once I've got them off the camera.

    Yes, but it looks absurd and there's a reason very few car companies use air suspension - it's incredibly hard to get it right. There are compromises in ride quality, handling and weight distribution that need to be engineered around, and I very much doubt that even a skilled car modder can improve the car in any aspect (other than the dubious aesthetic "benefit" of extreme lowering) by fitting air suspension to a chassis not designed to accommodate it. Car companies devote enormous resources to designing their vehicles to perform as well as possible, employing highly skilled engineers to build and test sophisticated computer models and physical prototypes. Why does the car modding community think it can do a better job? Anyway this is way off topic. Apologies.

    Love these, not so keen on the wagon wheel - I don't engage with the washed out look.

    Your right, as a motor vehicle tech I can assure you that ultra low profile tyres and air suspension can result in a teeth breaking, spine jarring ride but, that's customizing :clap:
    How many PC's are badly modded that are useless compared to a factory built PC (none of mine of course :rolleyes:)
    Customizing often has nothing to do with practicality :lol:

    Exactly that^. It's all about 'show' when it comes to lowered suspension, stretched tyres and modified bodywork- sometimes it can look great and sometimes it looks out of place, but it's all personal taste, just like PC modding :)

    Oh, you mean Trax just for those "modified,customized" race cars that are so impracticable on the road and only really work on the track :D

    Many race tracks run custom shows at race meets to try and attract people/money that aren't that interested in watching the likes of "Cleo" and "Porsche" racing that is too expensive for most people to compete in, some people may not like it at their elitist race meets but many race mechanics and engineers come from the customizing scene.

    And thus after hanging out with RV living park hobos in Prescott Arizona I finally return back...
    Many many gigs of photos to copy & go through :D

    I have to say I love the B/W Trax 2012 photo :D
    And the boat really ticks something lovely. The calm colorful scene... love the tone of clouds too.
    I don't see anything wrong with it. I like it a lot!

    From the previous shots, I love the Aloe Vera framed though the window by whisperwolf. Great eye and what an awesome lighting.

    ShiniAli - love the colors of the flowers contrasting against the grey rocks, but I think if you framed it with a little more flowers in the shot it would've been a much more stunning photograph.

    As for bdigital I am confused as hell by the amazing light on the eyes and head of the jaguar/leopard. Stunning shot.... wow Where is this blue light coming from? Really nice shot.

    As a biker I love the bike shot, there's something about it that I couldn't initially work out and then I realized it's because the bikes are coming up a hill which is quite unusual to see as most pictures you see in such remote areas are of miles of dead straight flat road that goes on forever.

    The depth in the blue landscape shot is impressive often humidity and/or mist means a loss of distant detail.

    The canyon photo is a classic and something I would like to shoot, those situations can be difficult to get the exposure right with such contrasting light but to my amateur eye the exposure looks good, no blown highlights and some detail in the shadow, great shot, is it HDR?

    Do you shoot in RAW?
