Here is a set of pics I am really proud off. It took a winter of patience before it stopped raining long enough to get some outside dust. Besides that, It just took some help from my son and a happy afternoon. ( I am a happy man, I know that :-) )



Please let me know what you think of these pictures and what I could improve. Cause I will definitely take pics of it again! The shape looks so iconic, I really love it. So much feelings in this shape and dust.

Hope you enjoy!, Greetz, Case

Looks very, very nice indeed! Many pictures are already quite scale - I'd say the contrast and light in the pictures could be improved on (This can be done either in Photoshop or settings of your camera. If your camera isn't advanced enough for it it's really worth getting a high end compact camera (versatile lens with wide angle, nice zoom, macro mode and a good light sensitivity as well (preferably not the ISO, but the 'F' (Lens Opening) - These cameras are in the 300 euro range (new) and really make a big difference.

I love pic#3! On first sight is looks like standing still, but on closer inspection it actually is drifting, sweeet

Pics 4,6, and 9 are my favorites. I think it looks like something straight out of a Dukes of Hazard episode. Great work, both thumbnails and full size photos look great.

This is great stuff Kees! I think all the pics are super realistic, but the second last one is my favorite if I should pick one. There's not much you can do to make better pics like this, but maybe you can adjust the colors/contrast on your camera?

Thanks for the great comments everyone!

@ Morten and Origineelreclamebord: Yes, I think I did something wrong with the camera but probably that is allso the dust at the lens. Eventually it was so dusty that the camera couldn't auto-adjust anymore, that's when I noticed it. This Fuji camera has a lot of zoom but that also makes it not so good in the light sensitivity. And I am lazy so I took all these pics on 'quick-repeat-mode' also some quality loss. Well, it means I have to practice more! BTW: pic 5 and 9 are 'enhanced' with photo-software, others are standard.

Hey Case - your truck is superb and your photographs are great. I'm a pro photographer and I don't think you need much guidance but in general wait for the right light (I think you've cheated a bit in these pix - they're a bit light and lacking in contrast but, as the end result is an atmospheric set of images, who cares if you bent the rules a bit? On the other hand a brightish but overcast day might have made them even better) Then pick your background, position the camera and drive the car into the shot - not the other way round. Got to say though, I would be proud to have taken these shots. Oh, and Thamson, you'll never grow and extra arm but you could grow three extra legs!

@ Dante77: Yes, I lost a rear light (but found it, is glued back on now) a wheel cap (that adds to the charm) and a screw from the front wheel attachment (but I loose those all the time and should glue them in). So no real damage luckily.

Awesome pictures kees, i think this is not possible to do it in your own. Driving your car and take on the same time great pics. To do this you have always witch two people!
