WAY OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE....

A friend of mine who is a motoring journalist and writes for a local paper as well as a few national ones, asked me if I'd like to help him my shooting a Peugeot RCZ he had on test. He's a great "scribe", but not the most knowledgeable photographer.
Having said that, this is new ground for me as well. I've shot a few stills of cars before, but this time he wanted to shoot the car being driven, which requires totally different camera setting and skills compared with landscapes. We found a location that offered some possibilities and I gave it my best shot - excuse the pun - and produced some images that he was really happy with....

SOMETHING DIFFERENT.....

The weather has been totally overcast and rainy for the past few days and the sea has been grey and dull.
I've never shot "macro" before, so this afternoon after the sky lightened and was like a huge softbox, I decided to try it out. The wind was blowing a bit, so some of the images are not pin sharp.
