  1. Had a chance to go with a buddy and shoot an Ariel Atom.

    Awesome little car. 300+ hp in a 1400lbs car.

    I was going to tell you that they are too dark, but now that I am at home at my high quality calibrated screen, they look excellent.

    I do like the way you use light to direct the viewers attention. calendar worthy :) 
     
  4. So they look good are you screen? Hmm maybe my screen is calibrated right then haha. People always tell me they are dark I always blame it on MY SCREEN not theirs haha.

    nice pics! over here in puerto rico we got a turbocharged one with 400+hp :eek: 
     
  6. That's just insane! haha stock they go 0-60 in like 3seconds this one I took pictures was under that and its at probably 305-320whp.

    I can't imagine how fast 400+ would be lol.
     
  7. So that's what you were doing instead of Formula Drift? :p  Nice shots.

    yeah it is on average 2-4 seconds faster on the track that the next fastest car and that is on a short track (~52 sec a lap)!! On the longer tracks the difference is even greater!

    btw just noticed in #4 there is some type of ghosting or something in the edge of the sky and background...
     
  9. Haha yeah I had other plans + this. I really wanted to go to Formula Drift. :(  oh well there is always next year! And hopefully I will have a 70-200 2.8 by then lol.

    I saw your drift shows the genesis is sick.
     
  10. #4 i need to go re visit. It was a crapy job of getting rid of an ugly fence in the background.

    This uses a turbocharged Civic Type-R engine, right?

    I really like the photos. "Calendar worthy", as someone said.
    Having said that, there's something on the horizon on photo #4 that distracts a bit. But I'm just being picky. :tongue:

    iirc... It took me a while to get that acronym. First time I've heard it. :tongue:

    Anyway, you're quite right. It's supercharged.
     
  17. Some come with the civic type R motor, k20a, and have an option for adding a supercharger to it.

    this one however has GM's 2.0L supercharged ecotec motor with a larger supercharger.
     
  18. #4's horizon is bad, i was trying to get rid of a fence but did a bad job it need to redo it and do a better job.
