By all accounts it is a fun track. I haven't driven it.

All were shot with a 20D and 70-200 f/2.8 IS.

Oh... and yes, I added the vignetting. There is actually quite a bit of post processing done to these pictures. I was going for a Top Gear-ish look.

It may not be evident, but it was a foggy, overcast morning.

I sold my 70-200L and got a 100-400L, but miss the 2.8. Wished I had both on rare ocassions.
Post processing = dark room for film IMO. It's all part of the making the photo.

Sometimes I wish I had a bit more reach. I have a 1.4X TC to get me to near 300mm. It's actually quite usable at 200mm, less so at 70mm.

Yep- that's what I did with my 70-200. Actually had a 50-500 sig but after using my dad's 100-400 I sold it. Got it mainly for bird/motorsports. Ok, enough camera talk before Philip bans me.

Eventually I'll get around to finishing my car. Then I'll start using this camera to post a ton of Miata shots.

Since I was already making this wallpaper for Jordan, I figured others might be interested.





Enjoy!

that's perfect - can you just remove the S2000?

Sure! No problem!

I'll just need a photo of your car, in the same pose, with similar lighting.
