Some photos from the other day of my '12

Here are some photos from the other day I went for a little ride with a friend to Ellicot City for lunch and stopped at an old flour mill for a few quick photos. The car is a '12 red candy metallic 401a with every option except glass roof (and Brembos as its auto). The only mod so far is a Borla Attak catback.....



Here is an HDR

Thanks in a little while probably just a cai and tune maybe delete the cats, but I don't know if they can tune around the emissions testing in maryland. I would love to do the roush blower. Since I have had the mustang I miss the whine that my Lightning makes and the gobs of instant torque the blower gives....O and I need to find a trustworthy shop to do my tint I wasn't happy with the place that did my t-birds.

The car has been clayed polished and sealed. If you notice in the direct sun reflections no swirls. I have used meguiars 205 for the polish. I did use a rotary polisher and for the sealant or wax depends on my mood. In these photos it is meguiars synthetic sealant #21. For basic maintenance a da polisher is all you need with the 205 or optimum hyper polish. With finishing pad or polishing for a little bit more aggressiveness. I have been wanting to try my bottle of optimums finish polish but haven't had the chance yet.

I couldn't agree more about a good DA polisher. It shows on your car fabulously. Very nicely done!

Can you share camera and lens specs as well as settings? I'm trying to get into photography and there is so much to learn.

Well the camera is a Nikon D90 and the first 5 photos were shot with the Nikkor afs 10-24 the last photo was shot with the Nikkor Afs 24-70 2.8. I believe I used aperture priority ans shot at f6.3 and iso 200(the base for the camera). I woudl have used the 24-70 for majority of the shots but car kept coming by and I wanted to get closer while still getting a lot more in. The photos were shot in RAW format Nikon's is NEF adn processed with Lightroom4. The HDR was done in Photomatix Pro 4. Not alot of editing was done, mostly playing with the highlights and shadows. If there is anything else you would like to know I will gladly answer what ever I can. Thanks.
