That silver piece on top (and black on the first one) is all one piece, then you have the cup, and the pump. All 3 pieces can be replaced individually if you have a problem, which is cool, but no one ever has a problem haha. I have seen some come from the factory with a small cut in the sealing ring, but it has been a few years ago. Still, I open every single one and check them for suction before they go out the door.

10-4 I was just thinking from a machinist point of view, that if that small ring was separate you could machine it and the extension out of one piece..always thinking :)

They look great.

proper exposure and a clean lens would kill a lot of that. you have a ton of background light and almost none on the car

thats great advise - for when going next time, but that does not solve the issue of right now

I was out rig-pro'ing with a friend for the danish suzuki magazine. But a nasty lightblob is almost unkillable, do any of you guys have a cure for this? its the blob under the headlight

- try the clone tool first
- take other parts of the car and mask it in
- repaint it in Photoshop

I'd try them in that order.

Dude, so nice, detail in the ground, detail in the wheels, awesome sky, good vantage point, leading line, no terrible reflections. You simply killed it!

Nice work guys!
When I was in school, I dated a girl who lived 18 miles away at the end of a country road that followed the river. I called it my Nürburgring. ; )

Love this one the composition and color are truly stunning. The stars in the night sky really adds to the entire scene.

Thanks! The original location was scrapped at the last second, so we had to go down the street. Not optimal, but it's ok.

My rig has been collecting dust for the past year so I finally got out and used it again. C&C welcomed. I had a lot more issues with camera shake and than I expected.

It's a pretty cool shot, I like the darkness, and the colors, but you really need a longer boom because you don't have enough background to really sell the motion of the shot, and the distortion is really warping the rear of the car.
