all these pictures are fantastic! I love the third one down, Lexus should probably put that on a billboard to advertise, no lie.

Welcome, Portland! Awesome roads down there - next spring you should check out Mist, Rowena Loops, Aufderheide, Fossil/Antelope/Shaniko & Bake Oven Rd - holy hell I spent a week out there in Sept. hitting all of those. OR pavement kicks ass.

Very nice picture!!
what camera do you use? any specific settings?
Thanks! I just use an old Canon Digital Rebel DSLR. I'm actually due for an upgrade, as its only a 6MP camera. Shot these using the stock 18-55mm lens, though lately I've been using my 85mm f1.8 lens a LOT. The settings for the first shot really aren't terribly important, as there are no depth of field issues. When I'm wanting to blur the background, I go as low on the aperture as I can (around f1.8, which is the aperture wide open), and take what I get on the shutter speed. To get the blurred car lights going by, I set my shutter speed to about 15 sec, and took what I got on the aperture. You need a tripod for that one.

The first image is an HDR of 3 separate exposures, 1 f-stop apart. In order to do that, you need to set your camera to Aperture priority, and let the shutter speed vary.

Thanks Nick! I do like the silver color as it is easy to keep clean, but I can't get the reflection you get with your Black one for HDR stuff. I waxed the poo out of the car, and it is still a very matte-type finish. Oh well. I'll just have to look at your shots for that "liquid" effect I like so much.
