    Just a Ruby's resturant test, that's all. :) 

    28mm 1.4d lens on D200 f 2.0 400 iso, set to fast aperture, but really at infinity, not limited by narrow depth of field here. Easily handheld @ 1/25th second shutter time.

    Crooked is the art Gale. (Where's that tongue stuck out) I used my car as my mobile pod. So, I was dodging a rear view mirror. lol This was really a test, just a night test shot. I have to say, the 28 is going to be so much fun for store neons/signs.

    damn, it is crooked isn't it. I guess I really was tired last night. :)  In my defense, I swear I don't think that parking lot was flat. hehe.

  4. You crack me up Doug, LOL. The ruby red colors do pop out.

    George, I crack myself up. You know, those people on the front row of cars, really should not drive SUVs, and they should drive cars with nice emblems, like Mercedes, BMW, Ferrari... Would make my photo not have to stand up straight. :)

    Stephanie is from Florida, she doesn't know what a hill is. lol.

    Actually, I was sitting down, perhaps that changed the perspective. The 28 1.4d doesn't distort a building's lines, what you are seeing is parking lot variation, as most lots slope away from the building for drainage.
