Probably one of my most favorite shots ever.

After this shot I started a list of cars I would like to photograph.
My main hope is to get my most favorite car of all time.

Porsche's "911 Carrera S type"

And nope I didn't have to look that up.
Yes, I am that big of a nerd.

If your wondering what my chances are.
There is within 10 miles from my home, the Porsche dealership for the greater Chattanooga area.


Canon 350, 28-105mm f3.5-4.5
focal: 105mm
aperture: f4.5
shutter: 1/320
ISO: 100
time: 5 hours ago.
Special stuff: Converted to b/w cropped, clarity added, and black upped. Done in Lr.

Oh, for those who don't follow anything car related, this is the hood ornament to a Jaguar S type year unknown .
And yes, people did walk by. And yes, they where wondering what I was doing.

Juicy Juicy Juicy

This is from a basketball game that I shot last night.  FSU vs. UNC.  We lost.  Am I surprised?  The answer to that riddle my friends is no.  Last second buzzer beater, 80-77, in case you were curious.

This is the Cleveland Clinic building a few minutes away from where I live
I edited the curves (mostly blue and red) in gimp to give it that vintage-y look that I like [too much] :P And to give it a little contrast

D's idea, which is weird.  He normally hates having his picture taken but today he was eager to take this one.  I thought it was pretty funny, having him "pray" while he was wearing his gangster hat and jacket.  

Location was my house.  More specifically, in my living room.
Nikon D80 with MB-D80 grip and Sigma 50mm 1.4

Photoshop ninja secrets: "Maybe...This Time" action.  I made this for use with portraits.  Desaturates and exaggerates highlights, adds red tones to the shadows, blue to the midtones, and yellow to the highlights.  If you have photoshop cs2 or above let me know your email in the comments and I'll send you the action.
