Rather bored currently, with no camera, as I broke mine 10 days ago. Photography is addicting. Anyway, here are a few I took not so long ago of one of the family's car.

The idiot roadworks people decide to use actual cement, which we thought would ruin the paint on the car. Was on there all day. Quite hard to get off!

I feel the subject of your photography is a little bland. Its great your out shooting though...just doesnt seem to interest me in any way

Unforunatly comondoors are not the most exciting cars to look at :)

The water spray is quite effective though, prehaps next time try it earlier in the day, and see if you can capture a rainbow in it.


And what did you do to your camera?
Sounds like a good excuse to upgrade to a Canon.

Wow, thats a pretty blunt reply. While your opinion is valid 'blinking8s', there is such a thing as discretion. somtimes it's nice to reserve judgement or 'bite your tongue'!
Wazza, your shots are what you make of them, I personally like the Mantis and the shot with Lens flare! Keep it up man.

I like the mantis shot because the background isn't a leaf! If taken out of context of the other photos you'd struggle to identify what it is crawling on.
The rest are a it lacking in subject though. Sorry

Well that's the reason these pics are listed on my site. They're nothing fascinating, just telling a small story of how we drove through roadworks, and they had recently used cement for some reason, and the dust was everywhere. Mix it with a bit of wetness, and really stuck to the car like a rock.

This was about 2 months ago. I broke the camera two weekends ago. And yes, definately a good reason to upgrade. I'm speaking to my work currently, (Westpac), and probably going to get a short term loan to purchase a 20D and couple of lens. :)

The previous family car was a Ford Fairmont 1995. And this is currently a late 2002 Holden SS Commodore (VY Series) (external link)

Car photography, and sport photography obviously isn't my specialty. I do much prefer waking up at insane hours of the morning, and watching a beautfiul sunrise, and waiting for it to set again. Maybe that will change when I get a pretty decent SLR, rather than a Sony Point & Shoot. :p Rally coming up, I'll try and be there, and also the Rugby Lions would be a great match to see in June/July.

there is too much "biting of the toung" that goes on in photography forums. If I shoot something that just simply is boring, or stright up sucks then its obvious that its worth going back and rethinking. Id hope someone would point it out rather than me continueing in the wrong direction. If there are good points in a photo or the set flows together well then I would point it out as well. I don't see anything wrong with me mentioning that I the content of the photos boring. Its how people reflect on what we post that helps us improve...

Good point, and generally I don't post on forums below standard shots. You have to let me off sometimes. Hehe.

Unless its a MKI escort, (preferably with a BDA) then anything is better than looking at a FORD.
(Although I am partial to the first AU failcon, the base models before they tried to cover up the very pleasing curve of the roof line).


A short term loan to buy a 20D huh?
I guess working at a bank could be advantages, although I would rather put that sort of money into a deposit on a house first :)
I would worry about paying for University, getting into a decent job, then buying a 20D.
Unless your determined to become a proffesional photographer, then worry about an art degree first :cool:
There is nothing worse than being young, in debt, and trying to live a life, earn a living, and get an education. You can two of the above, but not all 3 at the same time.

Forget a fine arts degree, just teach yourself, and with determination, you can be quite a sucessful professional photographer. I didn't do photography at school, and didn't even own a camera until 2000.
Now I make a living from it, and have an awesome lifestyle. With hard work, and a huge serving of 'right place right time' you can do it too. It's not for everyone, but it can be done!

This all depends. You don't have to put yourself in dept to purchase a 20D .

You can just sell your Minolta A2, and your Canon G3 and then put in about 400 bucks and boom you have a 20D with no other bills created. lol

haha..
it's all planning buddy, it's all planning.
