Great color combo. Fox red just makes the car. It's the number one feature commented on my car. Great pics! Bummer about the rain.

From the EXIF data on one of the photos, it was a Canon 5D with the EF24-105mm f/4L lens. Nice combo.

For those of you who are interested in a photography lesson, here is the excerpt from another thread of mine.

**************
....here is my recipe. A nice Digital SLR camera, I shoot with Canon 5D, then even more important is lens, you gotta have at least one high quality zoom lens, I prefer Canon L optics. They are expensive, but a nice camera and cheap optics is a waste of money, so if someone goes as far as buying a high quality camera, a nice lens is a must. Other than that - to shoot landscape you'd need a sturdy tripod; I use Gitzo, and a cable remote to prevent vibrations. To shoot portrait I use flash a lot.

Once you get all this, there is nothing to blame Just get out and shoot, try different angles, different time of day, inclement weather, etc. Avoid shooting in harsh sun. But no matter what you shoot watch your histogram, ideally it has to be shifted to the right without anything being blown out or severely underexposed. If you end up throwing away 15 exposures and keeping 1 - you're doing great. To get quality there is no other way than to shoot RAW, forget about jpeg. Your camera must be always set to shoot RAW unless you’re shooting a drinking party.

After that it is all about post-processing. There are a few masters of Photoshop on this forum, but Photoshop can be rather intimidating, and it is time consuming even for pros. I use it, but none of the pictures featured in this thread were processed in Photoshop, other that batch processing of resolution to fit the requirements of this forum. I process my RAW images in Lightroom 2. There is 3, but i haven't got to upgrading it just yet. This tool will take your images to a whole new level. Yes, I recommend reading a book on it, but it is a fraction of difficulty of mastering Photoshop. It has a lot of features, but all you really need to know is the Develop module. Its “General-Auto Tone” preset makes wonders, and you can google a bunch of other people’s presets and play around with them all day. Just don’t over-do it, it is easy to get carried away with all the controls.

That’s about it. It does take some dedication, not everyone is willing to carry around a backpack with photo gear and tripod and then sit and process the raw material.

Good luck!

*****
And about lens from that same thread:

***********

I'm using Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM - excellent walk around lens. if I had the money to buy just one, I'd get this one. http://www.the-digital-picture.com/R...ns-Review.aspx This is the best web site for canon equipment reviews, again in my opinion.

I also have Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0 L USM - this one has just stunning optics, it is a lot sharper than my 24-105, but it is not as versatile. If I had the cash at the time, I would have bought the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L USM, but it is a lot more expensive. Both of these are outstanding for portrait.

And the last one in my bag is Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM. This is not an "L" lens, but it is very very sharp (just as good as "L") and offers super wide aperture. Since it is a fixed focal length lens aka prime lens, I use it very seldom. I wouldn't recommend buying it unless you have a specific use for a 50 mm lens or a wide f/1.4 apperture.

**************

Hope this helps!

They take care of everything my friend. You buy a great vehicle and great service comes with it. You'll get Euro maps when you're in Europe, all the US stuff, including Navigation maps, will be installed upon arrival of the car to the US.

I agree on the Fox red. I had 330 ZHP, it was black on black. My X5 is Space Grey / Grey interior. For M3 I picked AW/FR, I realize this is by far the most common / trivial combo on this forum, but it is that for the reason and it happens to be my favorite too!
