Sold 343

How empty one feels inside when dooming one of these cars to eternal hell of banger racing (well kind of). But I needed to start emptying my yard or it would of rotten and sank into soil. Poor and worse is the choices to make. For 360 destiny should be different, so maybe it rots and sinks to soil, ...

I had them visiting me some days ago, mother and the cub, came right up onto door, luckily I did not came out then and only saw them prints, but they do come close now.

Re: Under exposing :(

First Brown cat photo, sharpness of focus in the face draws your eyes to the cats eyes. Quite striking Jani! Some reason part of that photo is missing from my screen, whole tail should be in photo, but indeed that sharpness creates nice effect, also it is relatively easy to get as cat holds head qu...

Re: Under exposing :(

I like that cat photo, awesome pose! Nice one BB! Exactly what he says :) I like angle of light also in that shot, it brings up all shapes very nicely, like fur being fur and not flat surface :D I think there was some 90 degree rule for getting photo that shows all shapes and colours best possible ...

Re: Under exposing :(

Hello jtbo The cat is beautiful... so much so that I took your darkest image and did a click of the auto-adjust button in Corel-photo-whatsit and it looks like this... http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k163/bogbasic/Corel_auto_adjust_zps8168a683.jpg .... how's about that then? And, how's about a la...

Re: Photos

Those two are stunning! Awesome shots. We have "thrown in the towel", can't think of one with gloves atm. I havn't taken many this year. Did get an air show out of the silly lens I bought, then decided it was all a bit pro so sold it on again! -- lot of incredible plane shots --- I think your plane...

Re: Under exposing :(

Sorry to hear about your circumstances. Given a low lying sun, cloud and shade, and the fact you're using a zoom lens I'd be very surprised if anything greater than 1/200th actually came out at all. I'd be looking at 1/60th- 1/100th in those conditions, particularly if you can't get an F stop below...

Re: Under exposing :(

I'm glad you've posted Jani, had noticed your absence. I'm sorry to hear about circumstances, I'll have my fingers crossed for you. I agree with you about the light, how much daylight do you get there at the moment? 4 hours and bit over 50 minutes from sunrise to sunset, mostly very cloudy though, ...

Re: No 300 series anymore in France :-(

Hey guys, I'm on holiday in the south of France (btw really hot, close to 40°, just insane!), I thought I would see at least ONE 3 series as before, in small villages... Nothing! What a shame! :( I met today a Finn that is living in NL, but was visiting this area first time in 30 years, just a rand...
