I was out on a mission today to rekke a possible location for a stylish gothic ball gown shoot at a place called Wycolla and on my way I passed a fantastic Mini cooper dealership about a mile up the road from Boundry Millls in Colne and saw this and had to take it. This car is susended twenty feet vertically up the side of a wall outside the dealership. Taken with the D800 I am totally chuffed to bits with how these turned oput. I am going to contact the dealership and ask if they want to obtain some copies of them for their showroom.

I like them a lot, Kenny. The last one has what looks like lens artifacts/flares which I think takes away from it, but it's a personal thing. Nicely done.

So do I but why did you stop down to f22?   Your lens almost certainly performs better at F11.

If it's meant to be hanging from a building the 'no parking' lines rather spoil the illusion IMO (Italian Job revisited?  :D )

Hi Bob...I stepped down to F22 because of the the light I tried to shoot at wider apertures but the light was just too much. The garage is south facing so was in blazing sunlight. F11 was blowing out the body of the car. It was very harsh light and in the angle that I had to get the car in to get these shots a wider aperture would have  compromised the exposure. I also wanted to get maximum detail in every inch of the shot. At F11 the detail in the lights wasnt good. At F22 it picked out all the mouldings and lines. The lens was my wide angle F2.8 17-35 sigma.  Ideally I should go back to the place in softer light but its a bit of a way to get up to and I had one shot at getting the shots.  I'm exceedingly happy with these shots and its the first time in quite a while that I actually had a thrill looking at any image of mine on the LCD of a camera. I normally look and feel horror at the crapness of them. I didnt this time. Last night when I couldnt sleep, I printed out the very first image on this thread on top of the line a3+ paper and the image just looked totally stunning. I have never had any time in my life before when I thought that of any image I did. I didnt even thing the beautiful gothic images for uni were stunning like I did with these. Think finally I might be accepting that I can take a photo after all :o

Just looked at the lens I took the shots with Chaz and looks like I might have scratched the filter at the front of the lens so will bin it and get another.

|Just spoken to Lloydcole BMW in colne where these were taken and they asked me to send some samples to their marketing department to look at. I've sent them the link to the FB page they are on and told them the originals are much much better.Fingers crossed they like what they see and might use them.

OK Bob..can you see an issue with the Image quality? Has using f/22 created any degridation to this particular bunge of images...The anwer is - no..simples.  :)

Defraction is for saddo pixle peepers such as Ken Rockwell who is NOT a pro photographer.

There's no way anyone could tell on here.   Might be different looking at an A3 though.

just to put the record straight guys. Last night I printed the first image out A3 + which is 16x19 at full 300 dpi resolution. Theres no defraction, no distortion, no softness of edges. The image printed out perfect and was crystal clear and in full focus. As I said before, the reason I chose to shoot at F22 was quite simply because I wished every detail of the image to be in full focus. had I shot at F11 there would have been some softening of the background because I was shooting with a wide angle lens. I didnt want a lower dof on the sky.I wanted all to be in sharp focus and it was.


Now thats over lets all breathe LOL. :D
