    Recently i got an 8mm Rokinon fisheye for ultrawide architecture stuff in Europe, and interesting converging line shots (cant wait to use it for Galerie Lafayette), but seeing as it was new I had to give it a workout.

    Went down to the TCCV Cars, Coffee, and Donuts meeting last weekend and had a bit of a muck around.

    Also giving LR4 a trial to see whether it can sway me away from Aperture, so please excuse some of the very cliched presets.

    Always very weird shooting stuff about 20-30mm away from the object and getting so much in. Those grille shots were basically hard up against the car...

    C&C always appreciated.

    #1 and #7 look quite underexposed. I know its tricky as the sky would probably blow out if you upped the exposure.

    Like the image of the 240Z ( #2 ) but you probably need to Clone that pole out

    Yeah, 7 is deliberately underexposed as it blows out all the highlights on the car. 1 is as well, but more to try and get that old film look.

    Can you clone stuff out in LR4 these days? Would be a piece of cake in PS5 but was trying to stick with LR for dev.

    Edit: FWIW, here it is sans-pole:

    I know nothing about photography, but I know the Datsun 240z, early 260z and the Toyota Celica LT are all BEAUTIFUL cars.
