so today the boys thought it might be time to see how the other half lives....  so, here we are out in ladies cars (sorry SiFi... your *other* car :p )

also, it was a chance to test out my new polarising filter, still a noob at it so not sure how well the pics turned out... look ok, a bit gloomy but nice.

but then after an hour of driving, a tragedy!  SiFi's tyre gave way :(

SiFi - gallant as he is - was heard hoarsley whispering in a last-gasp-kinda-way "go!  save yourselves!!!", soooo, we did. :)

after a bit more driving we ended up at the Myponga Dam.  very picturesque and romantic, i think after driving around the MX5 mhh forgot he was out with the boys.... :p

then on the way home we ran back into SiFi, still trying to organise help, no photos of that but here's a crappy shot of a Jag E-Type that passed us while we were there pretending to be of assistance...

Nice photos as usual Ash. I like the effect that the polarizer gives to the photos, but out of curiosity, couldn't you achieve the same effect with Photoshop?

I was impressed with how quick the VW was of the mark. Then again, I was gonna be easily impressed with other cars when being in an under powered station wagon  :doh: Although, I was happy with how the E91 323i handled through the twisties.

Overall it was a nice drive. Glad the wife gave me an outing pass despite being a last minute thing. Always fun when going out driving with the boys who just love cars and driving  :thumbsup:

i really don't know what i'm doing with it yet, i still just point and shoot.  i couldn't be bothered spending more than 10 secs on a photo cropping/contrasting so if it can look as good as possible raw then it helps.
