    My brother-in-law to be was taking some pictures around the house last Saturday and we asked him to take a few of our new, (8 weeks and 5100 miles) 85D. The Obsidian Black and 21" wheel package turned out so well.

    Wow, nice! And the car's not bad, either! Seriously, your future brother-in-law seems to know what he is doing, photographically!

    Nice shots, when I hear HDR lately, I often see over-processed. These are nicely done.

    I think the lenses in this case make a lot more difference than the camera body.

    It's not about the camera or lens, it's about the 10" behind it*.


    *And partially how well you can edit photos.

    While there are certainly some technical differences between cameras, this is the kind of question that really bugs most somewhat serious or above photographers.

    To a cook: Nice omelette. What kind of pan did you use?
    To an author: Nice book. What kind of computer did you write it on?
    To a painter: Nice painting. What kind of brush did you use?

    Photography is about the subject (a beautiful one in this case) and the photographer that imagines the shot before pressing the shutter. It's why Max* wrote about the 10" behind the camera. Certainly some of my equipment can help me imagine a shot and capture it when other equipment might fall short, but it's how I use the equipment that ultimately makes the difference.

    /end mini-rant

    Nice captures.

    I really love the look of the Tesla in black. Unfortunately, I'm both too perfectionist about the look when it gets dirt and too lazy to wash it often enough to drive a black car. The HDR really makes those reflections pop. Nice photos.

    Everybody needs to own a black car at least once in their life, so that 1) you get to experience how awesome it looks when it's clean, and 2) you get to experience how short-lived said look will be.

    Great set, awesome looking wheels.

    I'm a photographer since film was the thing and using d800 and d4. Was curious if he was a Nikon or canon.

    Why ppl get so offensive when asked what camera. Sheesh

    Even joe McNally often ask what camera ppl used or jerry ghonis. Heck I've met them and they ask those

    So no need to rant or soap box

    Oh to the painter or chef or author what .., you use? I've heard that argument made by photographers for years. Could be due to their in secure with themselves or something

    Of course equipment matters. Skill can only take you so far, with the right equipment take u the rest of the way. Let see a painter use a cheap brush or a pianist use any tune piano or photographer use a point and shoot. Each equipment complement the skill

    It's like a sharp katana in a skillful ninja hand vs a butcher or a clever in a ninja hand vs a butcher, the rest will vary

    @smilepak, I'd have asked the same question.

    The photos are great - "someone" should make a Tesla calendar with owner's photos...

    @Uncle Paul I had the front to the doors + a frame and painted strip in front of the pano roof + all high wear areas covered in Suntek and then the whole car opti-coated 3 days after delivery. Also clearplex on the windshield
