These were taken with my Nikon 12-24 just before I dropped it onto the pavement, necessitating repairs. :?

Nice images Steve. I like the lens flair and how you captured the 3/4 orientation in the first image. I'll bet it was tough shooting the second image considering the color of the GT and the setting sun.

Keep the images coming, Steve.

Hi Steve,

I go with Frank here, the colors are stunning as well as the car, what a beast !!! The light you get from the setting sun is superb.
Great job man !!!

The nice thing is, when shooting with such glasswork is the detail(s) you get.
So, I'm sorry to here what happened to it.

Best of luck with the lens, fingers crossed

Kind regards

Johan

Ack, sorry about the lens! That hurts! (I don't have that lens, but I'd reaaallly like one.) Love the GT photos...we're a Ford family, so all Ford publicity is good publicity :)
Ahh, it ain't nuthin' that several hundred dollars can't fix! :roll: Thanks for the comments!

Gave the owner several more 8x10 prints last Sun, and he's graciously agreed to let me take it out with him for a test drive. WOO HOO!

Hey Steve,

Give the guy your camera so he can photograph the huge smile that's going to be on your face!!!!

Nice pics although I personally have no use for a Ford ( :wink: )!!!

One question, have you tried "removing" the car that's in the background of the first one?

Good to see your smiling "avatar" over here!
Ya, that's an oversight, sort of "didn't see the forest for the trees" deal. It's the GT owner's next door neighbor lady's little white Merc SLK in the bg there, who also showed up to take some pics. I was so busy removing lens flair, telephone poles and guide wires, I didn't pay any attention to it.

Hey Steve...did you ever get the chance to drive one of those bad boys yet?
because his brother, the co-owner of the dealership, had "dibs" on the car for that weekend. Hope for the next upcoming weekend.

See if you can get someone to get a snap of you behind the wheel. That assuredly will be a keeper for the desk.
Better yet, how 'bout a video of me laying a humongous patch! :shock: Na, I told him I'm take it REAL easy if he let me drive.

Yep...that would make for a great video clip...then pan over to catch the owner clutching his chest just before he goes down for the count!

WOW, Steve, these are awesome! What a lens...sorry to hear about the trip it took to the pavement. It's one of those things you watch happen in slow motion. Happened to me but it was only 70-300ED..Hope all turns out okay.
