WOW!!
The quality of pics posted here is just great..
I think all these pics should be used to make T-BHP Calendars..

I am too inspired by all the great photographers here..
The thing is I dont know how to capture the right pic..But I can enhance it using photoshop for sure..

tifosikrishna, avoid using wide angle lens for shooting cars. It distorts the car by changing it's shape. All three shots above are nice. Thanks for the right kind of sky. But I do have a problem keeping that wind machine jumping out from the roof.

I think a 32mm lens(50mm in 35mm would be most pleasing?)

In the other thread, i found one other pic of the car which i use as wallpaper now.

First of all, thanks for liking the pics.

Wide angle lens was the latest addition to my collection and it was our first outing after the purchase, so really wanted to try out different things.

Here is my understanding about distortion with wide-angle lens.

1. it will happen at the wide end (10mm) and that too at the corner of the pic.
2. when the subject is very close to the lens.

ji, can you put down few things to follow in order to avoid distortion while using a wide-angle lens.

i wanted to include the dramatic sky in pic 1 and cover the road we travelled in pic 2 and hence such a wide angle.

Secondly i thought it gives a better perspective.

on the other hand, i remember rudra using 70-200mm to photograph his optra. needless to say, it came out very well.

i think, more than the lens, one should have the knowledge of how to use it intelligently in a given situation knowing its strengths and weakness.
