      Snapped Kris Deering's lovely CC the other day. Enjoy.
      Processing is a grab bag of different stuff I was experimenting with- all in an effort to mimick the stock photos VW/Audi use in their literature/advertising. All shots are natural light and various graduated filters looking through my 11-16 f/2.8 and 70-200 f/2.8 [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      1.

      2.

      3. Need to go back and clone out some of the dust spots from my graduated filters- they're really noticable at f/8 and beyond.

      I can't thank Mike enough for the opportunity. Ever since I saw the first snaps of his in the PNW forums I've wanted the opportunity to get a photo shoot with him. I couldn't be happier with the shots!!

      Amazing work! The car looks like it has 50 coats of clear.
      I also like those wheels. I'm a sucker for a nice 5-spoke.

      I know I will sound like everyone else by this time, but these are just fantastic pictures of Kris's beautiful car. Love the composition and creativity involved. I only wish his car was White Gold like mine and then I'd use 'em as my desktop background!
