      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


      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.

      The people around here tuck their teeshirts into their jeans. So a sense of humor will not be welcomed.

      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!

      New to the VW scene, so I've got a question.
      Those wheels don't appear to be an OEM VW part. So what are they?

      Beautiful pics. Maybe Volkwagen will use them for their advertisements.

      Question about the headlights. How do you get rid of the yellow on the side the headlights?
