    Hey guys thought i would share something with you guys.

    My girlfriend has a shack down at cape jervis (about 90min drive from adelaide) and we go down there quite a bit.

    Needless to say when im not driving im bored. So lately ive made something up to amuse me, EXTREME LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY.

    Basically you have to try and take the best landscape photos you can will shooting from the passenger seat of a car going at 110kph !

    If any of you guys have done / will give it a go in future post up your best shots !
    :D

    This is a really old one from the road between Melbourne & Adelaide. I'm sure I could probably do a better job of processing it now :p

    50mm is a long way from wide-angle. Especially on a 20D.

    This would be far more challenging if you had to be the driver as well as the photographer.*

    Was stuck at traffic lights the other day on Port Rd/South Rd near that Abbot Printing place thats bright yellow. Old man walking down an alleyway, big arrows on the wall he's next to pointing to him, the awesomest light behind him casting a shadow.

    Was the ultimate photograph :thumbup:

    (didn't have me camera...might take up extreme street photography out the window)

    I've got a shot here I took while passenger'ing in south gippsland.

    I'll get it scanned because its a pearler, I was using an olympus mjuII 35mm compact camera, I couldn't get my eye to the viewfinder or anything pointed out the window *snap*

    Its the STRAIGHTEST photo I've EVER taken, it looks like a spirit level has been involved!

    I did this while going over the snowy mountains in summer. Was in a hurry to get over the other side before dark and didn't have time to stop. Photos were terribly good however ;)

    I like it becuase it gets back to what is fun about photography.. see something appealing and just snap away. Sure they arent the sharpest, exposures are a bit off etc etc but as soon as we look at them we remember what we were doing at the time and how we felt about it.

    I spend so much time taking "perfect" pictures that when it comes time to shoot for myself i barely even have the motivation to look at my camera.
    I need to start using some of my obscure 35mm friends i think!

    Mine isn't the best as it was taken with my old Fuji FinePix 3500, but I like it anyway.

    This is somewhere in central France (either on the way to Mount Lucon or Vichey, can't remember which), about this time two years ago, taken out a bus window on a cold and drizzly day.

    That is a pretty nice shot from a compact P&S. I didn't think and IXUS 65 would be able to produce such a nice quality photo.

    Is there much PP?
