Gheybe - If you follow the concrete lines, it's definately a scoreline in the ground. Nice shot. Care to share a pic of your setup?

Thanks Corey!
And I'll try to find a better photo of my set up.

Light is great, but not enough motion gabe

Thanks Neil. Hopefully I can fix that issue with what we talked about earlier.

Nice shot, 2 things I'd possibly change though:

- the direction of travel/shot, the car seems to be speeding towards the grass
- the washed out sky begs for a drop-in

my 2c..

I would love to drop in a sky, but I'm pretty bad at it still. I'll try again later.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

I agree, the picture is great but could benefit greatly from a drop in sky.

A quicky edit (if it's ok, otherwise I will remove it). There are some mistakes in it, but you get the general idea ;)

I just pasted in a sky and selected 'multiply' and then I put the layer on 50%. Then with a mask I painted out what I didn't need. That's about it.

A couple of polarizations would have done wonders for that shot.

Nope, my pipe is custom, and more rigid than anything off the shelf. I just hope the guy I get it from continues to need it, 'cause it won't be affordable in smaller quantities :(.

Anyone using a 1 series camera out there?

My 1D mkiv with lens weighs in at 4 pounds!!!
Add a pole and magic arm and that has to be way more than two Avenger F1000 Pump Cups could cope with right? They're only rated at 4 pounds each!!

I have an 1D3 but haven't dared putting it on a rig and when I use my 5D2 I remove the battery grip as well to shave weight.
