That's a nice looking car you got there, but it's kind of dirty

Would you like me to take it to the car wash for you again?

Your gonna have a blast with that lens Long... All I use is my Canon 10-22 I am still in love with it after a million and one shots.

And also, the LM-Rs dont even look so small now that the car is lowered! I'd consider keeping those things, maybe going down a little more up front will make them look even better!! And next time wash the damn car before you post pictures, lazy mofo

Oh and, do yourself a favor and pick up a circular polarizing filter. They are relatively cheap and make a WORLD of a difference in your photos!

just out of curiosity ( I am a camera guru whatsoever), how do you get the picture to appear like its "curved" for example in your third pic?

Do you have to get a special camera or lens?
