1977 VW Bus
Lens: DA10-17 Camera: K7 ISO: 100 Aperture: F4

While camping this week the couple staying in the cabin beside us had a freshly restored 1977 VW Bus. I took a tonne of shots, but have only processed a handful so far. Thought I'd share one here...

Very nice shot, but that watermark certainly ruins its appeal. I bet this would look great on a large print!

Thanks for the kind comment Adam!

Unfortunately the watermarks on my images are staying, and recently needed to become more intrusive. I hope that the PF viewers can overlook this, given that the images are being shared on a public forum.

Thanks folks!

Here's a colour shot just to see the work that has gone into this beauty. The shot is a bit utilitarian, but it's one of the only side shots that I took:

Really like the tones and the reflection coming off the window. It would make a nice print.
