Since I was bored I decided to go to the school's parking lot and take some pictures of a S4 and a 330i.

It was raining so I tried to take these quickly. Ah well, I know I didn't position the camera properly but couldn't help it that the rain was bugging me :D

Let it begin with the S4...(Canon A70)
Oh yeah NO PHOTOSHOPPING from these pictures, only resize and blurring out the plates. Also this was on Full Auto setting.

not bad, nice rims on the S4, something looks off about the E46

Mike you really have to show me how to take pics even HALF decent as yours, i mean those pictures look EXACTLY like how a human eye would see, the lighting and everything!

I love shooting in rain alot...

Here is a tip

Rain + Action = Voila

Here is a picture of my own car I've shot before putting it away for winter...

Actually I could be wrong if it's a 330i. I suppose many people with 323, 320, 325's do the 330 wheel conversion or they could've painted their headlights on that 330i...?

Thanks I'll remember that, but don't you fear of getting the camera wet?

Haha, thanks.
When I master taking some more pics i'll help you out.
I'm still getting used to it and have yet to try any action shots, most of the ones I took before were portrait style pics. I'm pretty sure some sort of filter and with some photoshopping could make those pictures look better. :D

A few drops wont do anything, unless its not pouring crazy like it did today in Ottawa... If its drizzling I take my cam out... If there are water spots on my lens I don't wipe it up with a shirt tho, I use my lens cleaning stuff to make sure I don't harm the lens while trying to clean it.
