[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello everyone,
this is the first one I've posted for a bit. I seem to have fallen out of the habit of visiting much, for some reason. Anyway, I liked this one so much that I've returned just to share it :-)
It's a sunset shot of my dad's Porsche Carrera 4S, taken shortly after I'd managed to panic him by driving it at 140mph. Thanks to Tom (Bluepianowaits) for lending me his sunset filter, which I had to hold manually in front of my lens because I didn't have the right sized filter holder.
Contrast increased slightly

wow increible toma! los tonos en el atardecer te quedaron de maravilla, y el paisaje es increible tambien!
saludos =)

Blimey, that's a bit tasty mate. Lovely shot, looks like an advertising picture.
I'm not bitter

Hello John. Nicely captured against the beautiful sunset in Bahrain. Wide perspective and very well done. Regards. Jusni

Really nice...
Like an offical Porsche poster.

Hi John - I was admiring this shot when Mrs Arab came along and said "wow, could be an ad for Top Gear!". Very professional feel to this shot in both composition and exposure control - the colours/tones are spot on - very nice shot!

Hi John,

By keeping the headlight is on it shows the car is ready to run . .
Fantastic composition . . in the sunset . .
Al Bahrain car . .
Great shot my friend


Hi John,
Great shot, the Pov and composition are excellent, the sunset filter has worked well for you here, this would make a great cover pic for any car mag.
Well done
Regards Andy

Nice shot - great sharpness and evening tones.

Wow John, this certainly brings back memories! Sorry about being slightly twitchy at 140mph, it's not the same when you don't have the controls! I do trust your driving implicitly though. Fantastic shot, I was wondering if you would post it. Perfect sharpness and colours. Cheers, Dad

Hi John

OK yip I looked at Toms shot too and i have to be honest I prefer this one. the reason being your POV is a touch lower and makes the car seem bigger and thus more powerful. Well balanced shot with good colour and tones

TFS regards Helen
