    So at the end of May I began taking on automotive coverage for TomsHardware.com on a freelance basis. I love cars and have quite a bit of car ADD and love all cars, so this totally satisfies my need / want of all cars. Part of the joy of driving everything and writing about it is taking photographs of the cars. So in this thread I'll just keep updating it with whatever car I get in and shoot.

    First car - 2012 Ford Focus Titanium with SYNC with MyFord Touch (it was raining and very wet out)

    Not done with the GH2 but with two GoPros, here's how the Genesis Coupe exhaust sounds

    2013 Hyundai Genesis Exhaust Note - YouTube

    And onto some photos of what I have this week, a 2013 Lexus GS450h with Luxury Package

    These shots were taken with the Olympus 45mm F/1.8 at F/8.0, ISO160 and really long shutter speeds

    My friend has been stitching images together lately, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Took 15 shots to stitch this one together using Photoshop CS6's Photomerge function and correcting distortion using the transform/warp feature.

    The last one was taken with a Nikon 105mm F/2.8 Macro I borrowed from my friend for the shot, very nice lens

    And yes, I love the car. Going to miss it - plenty of power, smooth ride, sporty ride with the push of a button, tons of amenities, massive 12-inch LCD, adaptive cruise control, it satisfies my laziness of driving during rush hour yet with the turn of a knob it will satisfy my spirited driving. Also 31.5mpg average with the last tank with a lot of lead-footing!
