Full Version: British Car Day in Ancaster, Ontario

Today was British Car Day in a place called Ancaster, Ontario just outside Hamilton. The drive there was quite the event, rain so hard the windshield wipers did nothing, massive lightning, and then to top it all off a little bit of hail. I decided to stop at a mall until it cleared up. Here are some of the images I captured...









My favourite MG of all, the GT...



An interesting colour...

Triumph had some DERANGED colors for the TR6. Imagine that purple car with a green interior.

Really great pictures. They're very sharp. I like your filling of the frame on a lot of the shots, but for the full car shots, you might want to take a step or two back. You avoided all the people reflections.. great job there. smile.gif

What camera/equipment are you using?

Really crisp pictures. Beautiful !! Too bad we had rainy weather in southern Ontario today.

Some day ... I will own an Austin Mini Cooper of my own. thumbs_up.gif

Wow, your Canon takes pics that make my Sony look like a POS.

Sony digicams tend to be too grainy and have poor performance when lighting conditions are less than ideal.

I know nothing about cameras. How much would it cost me to get me one of those?

A Elph S230 can be had for about $300 USD (~$420 canadian)

You can also get a 2.0 megapixel S200 for about $200-$250 USD (~$280-$350 canadian) and there is a 4 megapixel model (the S400) that can be had for about $400 USD (~$550 canadian)

They're all good cameras, and very small, but they're pricey right now because they're extremely popular.

I don't remember what I paid but that was a while ago anyway. Mine is a 3.2 Megapixel and there are better ones out now.

Think a $200 Camera in general would be good?
clarkma5
$200 canadian? doubtful....if you were to get anything for that money, look at the 2.0 megapixel Kodaks and research carefully. $200 american is usually enough to buy a good 2.0 megapixel from pretty much anybody though.

Both. It's been on Manual most of the time lately. The above photographs were all taken on Manual mode.

If conditions aren't changing outside that much, shooting fully manual is the best way to get all the exposures coming out relatively the same. smile.gif

Av or Tv? It's set to autofocus even on manual. And yes, on some of them I did some mild photoshopping, the hood ornament with the red logo and on the Triumph pic I did the same.

What is this "tight"? I always hear it from the ghetto down the road "mmm, that car is TYTE yo, dawg, mmm" I'm guessing it's good, but really, it sounds very silly.

So if someone says that a car is "tight", they are implying that they wanna stick their "cack" in it then ? wink.gif

I guess the only logical place would be the tailpipe. So then if a car has a oversized "fart can" style exhaust, it would be a "loose" car.

A word of caution .... let the car cool off first before you attempt it. wink.gif

Nice pictures! woot.gif

Note: to those wanting to get that Elph, may I suggest just getting a PowerShot instead (unless you need a tiny camera).

Small = less features generally.
