    ...took our new Olympus, snapped on a 14mm prime, and shot many images...
    now, car shows with big crowds are very hard to get good shots, as people are walking everywhere, composition is good to be hard, with that said, it was liberating not useing a big bulky ugly DSLR, as many at the show had...

    rather, with the 14mm Olympus, we could easily and quickly fire off shot after shot... me and the hubby did these... we are still learning the Camera, and having fun doing so...

    1st up, I fell in love with the Mini Coopers...and one just might wind up in my stable...these little turbo cars get great gas milage, are very classy looking, and probably have decent power......time for some test drives..

    audi is bangin!

    ics-6.

    this smart car had crazy subwoofers and ground effects, car sat very low.

    ics-7.

    this car is rather loud...and not in sound..

    ics-8.

    this turbo Fiat was bad ass! I fell in love, hard to choose between this and the mini......never thought i would fall for these..

    ics-9.

    ics-10.

    the new Dodge Dart, look forward to the upcoming SRT-4..

    ics-11.

    ics-12.

    Scion's answer to the mini...looked nice..

    ics-13.

    this VW bug was fantastic, another turbo car that could find its way to my house, I have always loved VW's and this one was sleek, bravo on the new design...

    ics-14.

    CTV Coupe...maybe the baddest car there... the paint is incredible, and our crappy camera doesn't do it justice..

    ics-15.

    ics-16.

    Love the new SHO... this car had every bell and whistle, and two turbos for good measure..

    Great shots in a tough lighting situation! :smile:

    IRT the circular polarizer thread, it's exactly situations like these where having a circular polarizer attached really comes in handy to cut down on reflections! :cool:

    These are great shots and I love the perspective that the 14mm lens provides.

    One small correction -- the Cadillac is a CTS-V (not CTV.)

    Great job and thanks for sharing!

    Nice pics but what the heck is that huge analog gauge in the center of the interior of the second pic.

    Looks like some designer has way overdone the current analog retro craze. :)

    I know we all have different taste but that speedo would be a deal breaker for me if I was interested in a Mini. Maybe it's optional.

    I had a new MINI when they first came out. They are tons of fun. For my wife, they were too fun. She didn't care for the stiff suspension and go-kart-like handling. I also dig the new Fiats, but a sporty miniature car is not in my future unfortunately. Cool shots!

    I know this isn't a car forum but owning both a Mini Cooper S 5-speed, and Fiat non turbo auto. The Mini hands down. so quick so fun. The non turbo Fiat is sloooooowwwwwwwwww. Not a huge fan. But the turbo version at 160 HP and that size. Might be as good as the Cooper S. Maybe...
