No worries Bruce,

I went to the Classic car show at Kalorama oval last weekend and grabbed a few shots...

Here is a convertible Ford, first shot with a 35mm lens and then with a 200mm..

35mm


200mm

I like the way the 200 turns the background to blur. Quite useful for car shows id imagine.

How are you stranger, i hope all is well.

Yeah, the long lenses do well at isolating your subject, if you look at the Packard image, it also separates the foreground as well.

Manual focus? I couldn't pick a focus point on the car for auto. The upload is only 89kb

Auto focus, you can click on the image to go to photobucket... I think the original image was about 600kB

I had a look at the 600kb still to small to find the focus point.

Just a random question, is there a lens that you own that didnt cost the earth, sort of a bang for buck lens that performed better than what you thought?

Let me know when your going to a car show next and I might tag along if that's cool. I hope Bruce might have a car show coming along soon?

Here is the focus point, The transition from the white wall to the black... Nice high contrast point.



Unfortunately all my lenses did cost the earth....

I have just bought 2 new ones :) This one was cheap... A 14mm f/2.8 Samyany manual focus prime, it was $439.00. I also bought a Nikon 16-35mm f/4.0 it was about $1,000 more expensive.. I have to shoot about 5 recording studios in Sydney soon so i needed a few ultra wides.

You blokes certainly don't talk much about photography!!!

To keep the ball rolling, here is an arty pic i took of my new (old) Forester yesterday,

It was very misty in the high country, so this image suited a B&W conversion.

Cheers
