    Teamhaymaker - your cars / trucks reminds me of a recent shoot in Campo, CA - Motor-truck Museum.

    I recently joined looking for MTB threads and insight, but I just spent over an hour looking at Photography threads. Man, there's some real talent here... as if you didn't already know that.

    creamy... tonewise. I just love the sensuous velvety tones, very 50's to my eye.

    What scanner did you use? How do you print these? I find other's workflow very interesting...

    Thank you. Soft low contrast tones and extra shallow DOF is why I do LF. Sometimes I do contact prints (a 5x7 negative is big enough for a frame, 8x10 can be amazing), but I mostly scan them (Epson V700 + anti-Newton-ring-glass) and then print them on inkjets like the ancient E1280. I have not been very productive lately though and since I had moved a year ago, I have not touched my LF gear at all. Mostly cellphone camera it is these days for me but I have plans to build a dark room again.

    Here is one oldie: Soda Lake taken at Zzyzx, California. I do not have good memories of that place, I heard some really scary shrieks there while waiting for the shot.

    ^ i didnt mean my post to be negative. I apologize if it came across that way
    to me, if it was a teaching tool then most would expect feed back on how to improve.
    When I look at the car photos I dont see a "snapshot" with the exception of the last one.
    The s2000 was composed. They clearly paid attention to framing the car and the second one shows thought into dof.
    car meets are very difficult and sometimes not worth shooting. you work with what you have. I shoot alot of cars and Im trying to get away from it, but im pretty good at it.

    Another note of learning this ridiculously expensive art, photography forums can be awesome. I frequent POTN (a canon site) which has a ton of knowledge. Check it out if you guys want to read and view good shots. but beware, there are some people there with ridiculous egos and attitudes

    in regards to the photo above, the quality has been killed by where ever its hosted or uploaded, but that is one awesome shot. what are the horses for though? Ive never seen it

    oh and Highdell is quite polite, based on the short emails / PM we had previously

    ^It's an art installation at Burning Man '05 constructed of welded rebar and road gators (truck tire treads). Yea, whatever the smallish image had left got crunched in the upload.

    Edit: I should add that I try to keep copies of images I sell quite small so that they can't be pirated. Some of the images you guys are posting are big enough to be downloaded and sold by a chinese picture dealer... I,m only concerned for my fine art images.

    If you've driven to Mammoth from Los Angeles along Hwy 395, you've likely seen these cabins, just south of Lee Vining, CA.

    My only suggestion would be to crop off the slightly blown out foreground to the clump of green for even more impact.

    I wasn't trying to be nice - I also wasn't trying to be mean (if that's what you are implying)

    This Guy sums up what I was getting at.

    I'm no photo genius by any means - even mtbtacolover, the guy that shot them, got what I meant.

    90% of my photos are snapshots taken with my iPhone. If they ever get a 10 megapixel camera, I wouldn't use anything else.

    These are taken with a Sony Cybershot DSC-HX9V that I recently picked up. For a P&S, not too shabby.

    Photography Thread-smv_2.jpg

    Photography Thread-smv_3.jpg

    Believe it or not, this picture of a bald eagle perched was taken about 1/4 mile away using the 16x optical zoom this camera has. Tried to get closer but some cyclists spooked it away before I could get closer.

    Now days it is hard to define exactly what photography is. Quite honestly, I see things that have been so worked over in Photoshop, it makes me wonder how bad the shot was to begin with.
