Ive been a forum member of several BMW forums for years. DTMpower.net, Bimmerforums.com, Automotiveforums.com, etc etc... I basically have two huge passions:

- geek stuff
- car stuff

That's all that matters in life! Another small hobby of mine is photography, so I'd like to take the time to show you some of my favorites in life. OK before you flame me for "showing off my BMW", remember, I'm not some stuck up like you normally see. Its been a realistic dream-car of mine since I first saw one in 1996ish and I got one a while back finally. Shame its likely for sale! Enjoy it while it lasts. Without further adieu..







Let me know what you guys think of the photography!
And please if you guys are into cars, post up some pictures! If Im not on OSNN I am ogling car photography :laugh:

Like I've told you before: I love your car photography. And your car :D

I don't have a car at the moment, don't even have a full license. But I'll be going to take the test in a few weeks and hopefully I'll also have a car by the summer :)

I don't recall you telling me that, maybe it was before "the thing we dont speak of".....................


hehe But thanks for your compliments! If you didnt live in Minneapolis I would ask how you got around without a license!

Re: Wrong forum? The show off your car thread! v.OSNN

Generic, for the car with glowing headlights/street in back, it looks pretty indistinct because you tried to expose for both the car's lights, the car, and the background and lost detail in process, as well as much light.

You did 13 seconds of exposure at F/29, which is a bad combination - most glass peaks it's prime around f/8-f/11, past that you'll get quality drop off. You can do a long exposure, which would get the car, the world around it, but not the headlights. Assuming you're using a tripod, expose again for the headlights and then layer it in photoshop, and presto! :) Much better image. If you have loads of money to throw around, get a tilt-shift lense, Canon has a few. Crazy/fun results with depth of field and the focal plane, here's an example ( not mine )



As for my cars, I don't really shoot 'em. I have a banged up 1988 Crown Victoria with the police package ( P72, 5.8L V8 ) with 100k on it sitting in a garage. Very fast if I can get it to start.

Currently contemplating a newer Crown Vic, looks just like this one, P71 police package.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
