Nice pics of your car James. I wish it would stop raining here so I could get mine out.

Very nice shots James. Looks like the new camera is a good one. I've got a new one coming, hopefully next week. Then if spring will finally make it's way to Wichita, I can get out and shoot some. High of about 45 today, windy and rain. Blech!

Nice pix.

But I'm sure it looked a ton better in person with that tree glare.
I love over cast/cloudy days for that reason.
It's all about the lighting.

Nice pictures, James. You're doing very well. I think the fun of getting a new camera is experimenting with different angles, backgrounds, etc. One of these days I'm going to get a nice camera and quit using my phone.

Like many have said, nice pictures. You can really tell the difference between the pics now & before (with your old camera).

I recently got some photo editing software to take good pic like yours above & make them great. Similar to what Mr. Bill & others do. The software is NOT the easiest to use, but can't wait to get the hang of it.

I have photoshop on my desktop (windows based) & I recently got a MacBook Pro (as my old windows based laptop died) & it has some pretty cool features. I think the program is called iPhoto. I think it also has a program called photo booth, but I have not had much time to try these out.

Any tips?? (Sorry for the slight thread jack James).

Thanks, Not really familiar with Mac software, All I can say is digital is cheap so play around with it a lot and find what work flow you like.

Car looks good! Put a flash on that camera and a 2.8 lens opened up and you can really get some great shots outdoors.

Aperture is great software on the mac side. Photoshop is great on the mac side too though.
