Pretty much what it says really ... Why are there so few car related photographs and posts on a vehicle based website.

We all like our cars but how many interesting shots can you take of a car.Bought my first DSLR to improve on my car shots,but i suppose we move on and try other aspects of photography.

Steve, welcome. Have to say the website has some exceptional images, we have a number of superb photographers on the forum GD Williams and Dean Photo for cars, LloydH and Dave Ellison for aircraft and Get Garter and Rob Dickinson for landscapes, 4Hero for Macro and Dibbley Dobbler for Bridges :¬))
A very eclectic bunch with some superb images which keeps the high interest level in the forum, you will be welcomed to join in and post some of your cracking images.

Best regards

YB

The main reason I don't post more car shots is that I'm crap at it, also have a tendency to start arsing about with lights and burning wire wool...
