  1. I just started a thread on the rally I attended today https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=186197

    Just a warning to others , chimping can be very dangerous .

    As is having a compact that doesn't have a decent zoom ...

    Ok , I'm not really that dumb , I left the D40 set up on a tripod and got some shots before the rally started and added the cars later on in the day . :biggrin:

    That was hilarious
     
  3. I just made this one up , looks a bit better . I had to paint a shadow in so it looked more real .

  4. Funny. Now fade the shadow layer's opacity and add some gaussian blur to it, and it will really look believable.
     
  5. I noticed the 'sharpness' of the shadow afterwards but was too lazy to re-edit it .:tongue:
     
  6. Very funny, Desmond!
     
  7. This will end up all over the internet in the next week or so with some funny captions.
     
  8. The rally scene in the US is still up and coming. I love rally cars. Something about AWD turbo 4 bangers gives me the tingles! Nothing sounds better than the sound of an uncorked subaru boxer engine mated to a straight pipe exhaust. Music to my ears!

  10. I just wish I had the tripod with me here , I could have added one with me lying on my back under the car , wide angle lens pointed upwards ....

  11. Aren't I a bit thin to be an American :biggrin: .
    While I was clearing some grass and branches with my "pocket knife" one guy said "gee , it must be dangerous being a photographer if you have to carry a knife like that with you !" .
    I told him ''no , that's part of coming from South Africa "
    [a knife is a useful tool ok , Not a weapon !]

    those are good, i would move the shadow just slightly thou as it looks a bit off angle form the trees in the last oine but hey there al lfunny. thought they were real for a moment.
     
  13. I tried to be creative and downloaded the latest "Canon focus action" and applied it to one of my images to make it look like I took the pictures with a professional 1DSmkIII !

    Great shots I've always loved rally racing! I'm wanting to build up an older Audi Quattro as a driver/rally cross car

    Still can't beat an old small block Chevy!

    Having said that my AWD Talon turbo is supposed to move to a new home today.
