No mags will publish my shots, so I did my own. All taken with K10D/DA300.

Bobs crack, lol

Thanks for looking and I hope you get a laugh.

Obviously a plumber by day and a racing enthusiast by recreation. Actually your shots are pretty good even if they do not fit any magazine niche.

I don't know what it is, but your images are razor sharp. I have noticed, and it is my impression that sunny day pics reproduce much sharper than low lower light images. I use a tripod about 95 percent of the time and still my images appear sharper in bright sunlight than overcast light.

Cool way of presenting your images like this. It does appear like a magazine cover

The first one's quite nice and I could see the photo being in a R/C car mag (though not as a cover) but I'm pretty sure most magazines are in the portrait orientation?

I was gonna say something about the builder's crack...until I actually read the text. "Crack Monthly". Hehe

Oh, and a bit of health related stuff: I reckon you should tell Bobby to bend at the knees, not the back!

Thanks too pop4. I don't think I have ever posted a pic on this forum in seriousness? Except for my b/w.

All, Happy Christmas and thanks,
