Here is one of the last bits of photography I did

It was shot last weekend (is a slight bend of the rules allowed?) at Chester Zoo on a Fuji Finepix 5500.

Here is my offering for this month from the Horse Chestnut tree next to my house - I seem to be developing a preference for yellow and red subjects at the moment!

Olympus E410; 18-180mm lens @114mm; f/5.8; 1/180/ ISO100

Rainbow through low clouds over Stanton Moor, Derbyshire, taken from opposite hill.
Taken with the only thing available - Palm Centro built in 1.3mp - a lesson in remembering or bothering to tuck a decent digital in your pocket when walking the dog.

Cheers :)

Tell me, how is it?

My dads thinking of getting one, but I believe its only available in a 5 speed auto.

A friend of mine brought his onto the Nurburgring and went flat out, apparently its great and rivals his Viper easily.

I love it to be honest. It is big and heavy, but the power is nice and I have not stopped getting looks all over the place. People literally stopping and getting out of their cars at red lights to take a look/ask me about it. There are 6 Speed manuals starting to trickle out to the dealers from what I understand.

Also, I would not compare this to the Viper as the Viper is in a completely different class.

That's awesome. The thing I really like about it is that it wasn't built to try and be a Ferrari or a Lamborghini, and its more a compliment to engineering than it is a challenge.

Really great. Hope you enjoy it and thanks for answering the questions.

Awesome shot fiasco. I will have to say you have some guts though. Maybe its just me,but i get so nervous shooting models with a fish eye.

Thanks gomez!!

What's there to be nervous about? I figure I'll try something new and see if it works, if it doesn't work then I've lost nothing, if it works I get shots like this.

So true, i guess for me its more of a fear that I will fall in love with the shot, while the model hates the way the fisheye distorts her/him. Maybe one of those times my thinking is getting in the way of just shooting. ;P ;P

Yeah, but, what if the model falls in love with the shot too? She definitely loved with this shot!

Just go for it! It would be a shame not to try something potentially good when you already have a beautiful model in front of you.

I really like the new MacBook Pros... except for the glossy screen. That will really suck for photo editing. So I'll probably get one like yours too. :)

It almost looks like the model isn't even affected by the fish eye. It kinda just looks like she's leaning toward the camera. Its a great shot.

I don't have a really nice photography camera or anything (Powershot SD550), but I really liked this shot I took over the summer, which I recently did some editing to.
