I really like that composition Turo. The fish is hilarious.

Depends on the Volkswagen and on the Ferrari. After all, a Bugatti Veyron "is the quickest accelerating and decelerating street-legal production car in the world."

Nice one, LGBChris! I love the colors! I love that shot, accord2003. I love the texture of the water where the sun is being reflected!

I saw a topic you posted on flickr about it and I can't wait to see if that's a typical issue on a Nikon 50mm 1.8D.

This is in Sinks Canyon State Park, just outside of Lander, Wyoming.
I used my polarizer fader to darken the scene just enough to use a shutter speed of 4 seconds at f/22. I also used ahard line GND to cover the sun and part of the sky. I was at my widest focal length, 18mm, with my back against the back of a cave and the tripod set up precariously on those rocks you see in the foreground, only bigger The top of the cave is just out of the frame, so the sun was only shining between the top of the cave and the top of the mountain for a few minutes. I wish I had a super wideangle, maybe by Christmas
Edited primarily in Capture NX. I had used low contrast and high saturation in-camera and then increased contrast in PP to bring out the details.
18 mm, 4 seconds, f/22, ISO 200
C&C appreciated as always!

Wow toriaj, beautiful image! I absolutely love the way the water looks running over the rocks. I am jealous, I wish I had scenery like that around here!!!
