    Continuing with car related themes...

    Went out to go get a haircut this morning and the entire top of the car was covered with these really cool frost swirls, so I thought I'd share. :)

    While they look huge, in reality they hardly stuck up above the surface of the car at all. It's all a play of light. :wink:

    Beautiful shot. The lighting brought out the detail perfectly. I am sure you tried different exposures and apertures. How did they look? Good eye.

    Thanks guys, glad you liked it.

    craig- yeah I did, this was the best of the lot. Had to work fast, the sun was coming out from behind the clouds & threatening (and succeeding) in blowing out the highlights on some shots.

    As is usual, the first or second effort is usually the best. I seldom manage to "improve" what I've already gotten, though I never stop trying. :)

    I know what you mean. This is especially true with natural subjects. Like frost and flowers etc. I believe that it is "the spontaneity" (decisive moment? There, I said it!) that captures the most compelling images. Although I have had some luck shooting "objet's d' art" i.e, tractors and cement factories after about 45 times.
