    Shot this for a customer earlier. Not ideal as wanted to shoot on tarmac but ended up on grass. Used the sun with no fill and used a star 8 filter to enhance the chrome on the machine. Hopefully will get more work due to this. Lovely car too.

    Shot looking down from a small set of steps with the 40D, Sigma 10 -20mm, around F10. Hopefully going to shoot this on road with some off camera flash.

    Really like the last 2 Pete, nice work.

    I've never heard of a star 8 filter before, but I love the effect! :smashin:

    Nice shots Pete ... might want to keep a small handbrush handy if you get to do some more work to clean down tyres from grass or dust ...

    Thanks all.

    The star 8 is a cokin filter, you can buy variable numbers too, but 8 seems about right for me. Looks great with night city scapes too. I love them. It's a marmite thing however.

    Nice idea about the brush Jont, duly noted.

    Pete.

    That's one shiny car, and the star filter works really well. 2 and 3 are a bit out of focus at the distant end of the car - too wide an aperture?

    Yeah, today was an experiment really, stuff like the tyres annoyed me, and I will shoot nearer F16 next time, but a good test run in natural light.

    Hi ya

    Agree what has been said about the tyres, it really shows up on the last one.

    Really like the bling the filter has caused.:thumbsup:


    Cheers Holo:smashin::smashin:
