Nice shot guys!

One amateur question- How easy is it to drive a sedan on the batch? Without 4WD, wont it get stuck?

Thanks Crazy driver!
This is a shot from my new DSLR.
Still getting used to the Sigma 70-300 APO DG, so it is not as sharp as it should have been.
I sincerely hope to match your expectations in the near future.

Preetam you should use your 50mm f/1.8 for these shots, I am sure it will give a very sharp output than a zoom lens. I haven't tried similar shots, but lighting is very important. Try to get the maximum natural light as possible or use reflectors or bouncing techniques with thermocol or something.

Nice click nevertheless
Sorry sir for the "small" slip! Yes it was the LAMBORGHINI and not the Rolls.
In a couple of hours I roamed around all their showrooms! It was amazing to see what these guys were doing inside rather being on the road!

Be careful while driving on sand.
This is what happend to a vehicle without a 4 WD , parked for more than 30 minutes when the tides are raising.

The more the driver tried to forced the vehicle to come out of the sand, the more deeper the vehicle tyres got into sand

Checkout the amount of depth the tyres have gone in. Look where the silencer is :-)

After 15mins, Literally the local guys looted 2K Rs from the owner of Endeavour just to Lift the vehicle and Push it aside.

Only when I informed the owner about his vehicle getting struck in the sand, he did come n saw the condition.
He was so busy with his family enjoying a Bath in the Beach, If I hadn't warned , He wouldn't have even noticed if the waves would have taken his vehicle into the Sea .
