    I like your shots, though the framing could have been better, as pieces of the autos are cutoff/not framed...

    but i still like them..

    Yeah due to lack of space could hardly get around the cars.

    Some of the shots I am nearly leaning on cars behind, and seeing how much some of these things cost was careful not to even touch them.

    Thank you for your kind words.

    this is why the panny 14mm is so valuable for these type of shots, one it allows for some incredible angles and one is able to capture the entire car in spite of the crowd and space......

    but this is my preference, not saying its the only way, its the way for me though.

    Nice shots, just trying out maual lens..... cheap as chips here in the uk. My Helios cost me £25 and just ordered a Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar 50mm £20 (hopefully arrives tomorrow). Maybe test me a bit more by having to use a manual lens.

    Love the fact that I have such a small DSLR in effect!!!

    Great job for being new!
    If I may be so bold, I'd like to say that with a 58mm focal length, you might be better suited to shoot parts of the cars/bikes and not necessarily try to frame the whole thing. (You don't necessarily need a wide lens to shoot vehicles/motorcycles)

    See? :smile:

    Wow that one of the tyre is so different even better that you can see its been used. Awesome shot. Was on mflenses but I'm just not in their league when it comes to photography. And am hoping none of you take this the wrong way cost so far you all seem very nice. I wanted to join a forum that was more for the amateur who just wants to go out and shoot. I mean that in the nicest way truly. So please no one take offence. People on mf would criticise me for being slightly out on the subject matter.

    The colors look great from that lens, nice to see shots from a GF3 too, I'm a GF3 user also and we don't get many shots added..

    Yeah mflenses is good and some fabulous shots on their but be warned if your amateur like me you will feel it so prepare for criticism. There will be honesty in a nice way but they are all seriously good on it.
