I didn't take this one but I like it very much. The credit goes to Chris Brown.

That's probably the best looking Fabia ever ;]

Hey guys I remember some people talking about where to place the eye hook for the support system?

Do you guys place it dead in the middle for the most tension or did some of you move it closer to one side?

Confused now fellas! Here it is straightened up bit. I just rotated it and cropped it in P Shop.

Nope. I don't often say this, but tilted & offset to the left as you had it works better for me.

I agree, I think the tilt added to the action/movement feeling to it.... now it looks a little slower :)

I have to agree now that I see my suggestion tried. However, if he cropped it evenly and centered it, I think it would look better then the angled shot. Just an opinion though!

Has any of you used a suction cup in the rain? Specifically the Avenger F1000.

^ wouldn't you be more concerned about the lens and body? But rain shouldn't impact the suction cup as once it's applied, it's sealed. I usually also some a bit of water or detail spray which seems to help with suctioning.

I think his thinking is is the suction cup going to fail due to the body being wet causing his camera to hit the deck ;-)a

And no no real issues from when I've attached mine to wet surfaces
