I've always wanted to shoot construction vehicles. Very nice!

All shot with the Standard Prime in JPEG with auto wb - some post-processing but no sharpening has been applied. AWB is a bit all over the place (especailly with RED so I've tried to correct it a bit) I've also noticed that the Q over exposes by about a stop.

Image 01: Close up of a Confederate - check out the machining marks on the CNC billet

Image 02: Again the Confederate - great detail to the machining

Image 03: A Bimota in bleach bypass mode

Image 04: Aprilia up front - nice carbon weave

Image 05: Bimota up close - red is a little off - I should have shot raw!

These are all handheld at a motorcycle expo under pretty average lighting.

Bleach Bypass custom image setting through the high contrast filter. And over-exposed 'Velvia-attempt' bee.

Not quite as hand-holdable as on the DSLR.
I don't even try anymore, that's way to much for me.

Here's another with the DA*200 (no TC this time). Uncropped, run through GIMP for some dodge and burn:
That looks very nice.

From my first session with the Q, a couple of weeks ago:



Processed in Silkypix, as I am now doing with all of my shots with the Q lenses, to get the automatic lens correction. Both the 01 and 02 have plenty of barrel distortion, so it's important to shoot wide enough to account for this if you intend to use lens correction.

In addition to the lens correction, I do really like the perspective correction tools in Silkypix, very helpful for shots like this (as above, with the 02 Standard Zoom):

Thanks! I tried to limit the amount of PP I used so as not to lose too much which was actually a little hard since I love to tinker (sometimes to the detriment of the image).
