    Taken with the 40D earlier. Nice camera, exposes well. Very pleased. Used a speed lite for a spot of fill flash, though dialled down 1 stop. Left them in colour so you can see how this machines handles. Somewhat Nikon like with the colours I think.

    Re the subject matter

    Makes me laugh that we are classed as geeks for taking pictures at weekends :)

    Is that Ollie Reid in #6

    Nice tight shots Pete, what lens you have on there, you are right re the colour balance very D2.

    Hi mate, used the 24 -70L and the Sigma 10-20mm, of which the latter were shot in RAW so not played with them yet.

    As for the weekends, well, the irony is that these were shot at a car rally, full of people in love with old skool cars, across the way were some guys dressed as WWII soldiers and these guys doing the American civil war and the us, the snappers. Thankfully, as long as people enjoy something the world will carry on going round! Fair play to all....
