    me 2 cents again...

    1st pic is slanted. Dont think BMW makes cars with bigger wheels on 1 side =)
    suggest that if U wanna slant the pic then maybe do it from a lower angle or take more of the car.

    2nd pic is nicely taken but some revs and the great big bokeh smudge in the top right hand corner is distracting

    Thanks. Appreciated! So next time I frame the pic I'll do a slight CCW rotation, and bring my position about 5 feet down and left.

    Here's the dashboard again with the engine rev'd up. It made a beautiful roar rising up to 3.5k revs. Can't wait to retake the shot...

    Any tips on taking the dashboard and getting the chrome to sparkle as this was +1.5 stops? DoF not the same as the first frame, unfortunately, as this was a digital shot.

    I think if U want the chrome to sparkle then some studio lights are necessary but I'm no expert so I dunno.. looks like thats how they do it in car mags

    me 2 cts on yr dashb. pic, nicely illuminated but maybe a long exposure to show the rev needle moving would be good. the other needle at '0 km/hr' is not so inspiring so suggest a tighter crop so U can only see the rpm display.

    And BM makes a nice roar at 3.5K rpm?? Since when?? I htought they just growled =)

    Thanks Rev....Yep, I think there's probably a reflector or light to cover the shadow...


    Btw, i believe they tuned the exhaust for the 330Ci Cab... It has a diff note vs. 530i, and z4 3.0 is louder...
