Thanks Ken!

I love the first one with the old cars. Would look pretty good with some sepia tone applied.

Since its your fault I bought it I'll share what I have.

We pulled the build sheets yesterday and learned the car is a COPO, special event built on 02/14/2006 "Valentines Day" and a Tuesday.

It shipped to Alan Jay Chevrolet in Sebring, Florida on 3/03/2006 for use as the midway display at the 54th running of the "12 Hours of Sebring " on March 18th. The Corvette C6R took 1st place in the GT1 class that year followed by two Aston Martins.
The car was transferred to Alan Jay Chevrolet on March 21st and later sold.

I won't get it until Monday or Tuesday as there are a few things to do and check. The techs wanted to go to the race which is Saturday, so they are not working today or tomorrow. I'm in no hurry

Here's a shot of the paper work.

Good job, and a great model. Maybe add just a tad more sepia to get it a little browner for that antique look.

Something along these lines. I like this look, but I hate the power lines.

What is it with the U.S. and power lines .... they have spoiled so many of my images ....

I needed to get right out into the rural places to get away from them.

Such a shame, but people have got to get power and phones somehow.

Whilst on the subject of the U.S. of A. and specifically California.

I thought a couple more shots from that wonderful state would work.

Specially as one has a door for Leighton - the wine cave at Inglenook in Napa Valley

Also housing what must be my favourite place setting for dinner.

Then seeing as we have a tendency to show off trains here - I thought I'd like to show the Napa Valley Wine Train.

All taken on Kodak DCS660 with 25-50mm f 4

So from early days of DigitalPhotography and a very expensive camera the Kodak DCS660 (F5 converted by Kodak)

To today having just purchased a D800 - it should arrive Monday .... I can't wait ...

The D700 is still serving me well and will stay in the bag - it's such a classic.

Let's hope soon I will be enjoying the benefits of the 800 and 36mp .... big prints ..... here I come !!!

Steve, what a lovely set, and thanks for the door! I love the processing of it.

Congrats on the D800.

Congratulations on the C6 Ken, an excellent color as well, when I bought my C6 I thought silver would be a classy color, but after owning it for a while I now realize red is the only corvette color, any red. As they are convertibles I put sheepskins on to keep the seat from getting to hot in the sun or too cold at night.


My first Corvette, the 1956 was white when I bought it but after getting a 90 day license suspension for speeding... I decided to strip the car and repaint it what was then a brand new color on any car... candy-apple red... five coats of hand rubbed lacquer. Boy was that a sweet car, especially after I dropped a 327 cubic inch fuel injection short block with two four barrel carburetors on top. Funny thing is I didn't get any more speeding tickets with that car...

The two 1965 Corvettes I owned, a roadster with hardtop and a fastback with those gorgeous wheels were silver with black interior. Although I'm a fan of silver for cars, I think you're right Rafael... red in some form makes the most sense.

Wish I had some photos...

Thanks Leighton.

I have other doors too ....

I will just have to find some more recent ones for you .....

Also I have found this from my travels with the DCS660 taken on an 80.200 f4.5 from the top of the Eiffel Tower, Paris.

Reminded of it by Phillipe as it has the Bir-Hakeim bridge from above.

Not as sharp as Phillipes though.

Showing the Pont-de Bir-Hakeim to the Pont de Grenelle with the Allee des Cygnes island running in the middle of the Seine with the Statue of Liberty just on the far side of the Pont de Grenelle you can just see it standing above the bridge.

I'm going back there next week but this time with the D800 ..... happy days.

Amazing how fast this thread moves. Here I thought it was my sparkling personality that had been keeping this such a busy place, and now I find out it has NOTHING to do with me...

My life is still remarkably hectic so I can't give full attention to this thread, or comment on the many fine photos being posted, but once escrow closes for Sue, we can all take a deep breath...

Thanks to everyone for keeping this thread alive and well. I know it is these lenses that really provide the inspiration for this work, as it should be. I still get a thrill when I pick one of them up... such amazing craftsmanship and what fun to shoot with. Have fun everyone!

This would not be here if it were not for you ....

You just inspired the rest of us to share your passion.

So thank you !!!!

Whilst we are on the subject of cars .....

Which you may have noticed .... we are not any more ....

Here is one I owned and would love to go back to tomorrow.

I keep looking at them .... but to no avail so far.

The Alfa Romeo GTV 24v V6 fire breathing monster that from the factory will do 152mph without any boost.
Just a normally aspirated engine.

But when someone clever breathes on it .... well I can only say it becomes even more illegal !!!

Spring must be close. People on the thread are adding new stuff !!!
Ken Hill added the 35-200 AIS and a new Corvette!
Congrats to Reagan for his new 135 F2 AIS and 50mm 1.2 AIS
Peter got the 16mm 3.5 - 3d time is a charm
Jose's chipped lenses are just beautiful!
Rafael with his new 135 2.8 Q
Buddy with his 135mm 3.5 and 28mm 2.0 NC
Steve with his new D800 on the way!!!!
I added the 55mm 3.5 Micro and 135mm 2.0
Sorry if I missed anyone but new lenses really stir my excitement for our thread.. Trying new lenses and kit building is forever but each addition has it's own very special moment!

BTW Curtis hasn't bought a new lens in quite a while. He says he has all that he wants but I don't believe him , do you?
