    Tough shooting conditions, so most of these are ISO 400...best I could manage without excessive noise or unwanted light trails.

    #1 - Not gonna lie, this is my most 'doctored' image ever. Photo's pretty much as-is, except there were two bits of glare on either side of the logo I wanted to eliminate..it didn't drastically change it, though. Not entirely happy with it either..but..I wanted a Martin logo...

    #11 - Story to this. Happened upon the NASCAR exhibit, where a photography was doing a shoot for several people who jointly own a nearby speedway that'll be hosting Canadian NASCAR races. I decided to see if I could time my own shot of the subject, as the room was too dark to allow for my own, and what do you know...this shot here, the flash you see is the setup used by the photographer...only with me behind and off to the side and lynching off it :lol:. Still don't know how I timed it...

    Very nice work, and I'm really jealous!

    Is the SL55 the old Benz? If so, I believe it was a late-50s, but I could be wrong....I made a mental note of what I could, but I took so many shots today (around 340...I know numbers aren't everything, but alot of those were me attempting to balance the right shutter/aperture/iso combos) and saw so many cars, I couldn't really keep track...and beyond the brand names and some models, I'm not a huge car nut anyway

    The old one is one of the first SLs if I'm right, but that's excusable :p

    The new one is the 55 ;)
