I must say, that is some truly spectacular photography. The saturation and contrast reminds me of when we used to make prints off of slide film, and the perspective in the first shot is great. Mind sharing the details of the camera setup?

My friend shot these for me, so I had to ask him:

"Rebel XT and the Sigma 10-20, with some post processing."

The only thing that has been repainted on this car are the bumpers and I like how the bumper lenses are, they're lightly smoked. Probably going to replace them with stock clears again anyway, soon.

Damn. I knew it had to be a short lens, but that Sigma's a $500 item right there. Schweet.

Your friend does good perspective work.

Great looking car.
