Well done at getting anything with the 50mm f/1.8, it's really not the best lens for that job. Can I also say that I am not a fan of the tilt shot... in fact I'm notorious for not liking it... In my book these shots would look so much nicer if the cars weren't falling down a non-existant mountain side.

Sorry about the tilt shots just trying something different
I should have said 50mm and 10D

I agree with Caldwell, especially about getting these shots with the 50 1.8. Well done.

Here was I thinking that I had cornered that notoriety. Photographers shoot at the correct angles, magazine editors do what the h*ll they want with them afterwards.
