when do you folks have time to leave the urban world to take such lovely pictures. I just seem to get stuck in the concrete jungle all the time.
The head lights appear darker coz i applied some burn there...actually i think i screwed it up

IIRC, this is the same location as the 'bed of grass' pic, right? (not sure of title, but remember 'bed' used in title). Liked this angle better!

Ooty?
Yup its the same place

TG.

Stratos, could you please post more pics of this car in hi-res? It has to be the best-looking Vantage I've ever seen. Mind-blowing.

Beautiful Shot. Where was that one taken ?

Take a long term look & you will not regret it. Your cam will also love it.

Thanks Condor. That is Emerald, approx 30 kms away from the crowd of Ootty. That is a dry river bed & you can drive through it. To get an idea, look at the following pics.

This is a two year old pic & you can see the water in the river through the sides of the bridge.
The Auto-Image thread-dscf1468.jpg

Now the same bridge, this time without water. No rains & ootty got a peak season during its peak off season. It was fun to drive through the river even though you have to be careful for the loose sand.

Sorry, for the OT discussion.

I meant your Scorp . I would love to shoot your Scorp, too.

It wasn't OT... nice pics again.

Ok, a soft post processing on MAG's car. Shot on last Sunday. I was waiting for the right light and the boys (Vikram/Akshay/Mag) were getting impatient.

Original shot is on RAW. 8 sec / f20 / 90mm on 70-200.

Original.

Even dispassionately speaking, thats one heck of a bloody brilliant job Rudra! Great job! And if this weren't my car, I would have bought it right now! I'm quitting my job right away and joining you as an apprentice. I report to work in your place tomorrow 8am sharp.
