Today's M5 pics and a wallpaper...

I spent hours detailing the car with Klasse AIO and SG yesterday, so today I just had to go for a drive possibly take some pictures... Hope you guys don't mind














And this is my new wallpaper. Click for bigger image.

Thumbs up Great Shots!

The fourth and last shots are stunning.

Great work!

Makes all the elbow grease worth it.

Yeah, previous shots aren't that good, I was just so proud of the shine on the car that I had to share all of 'em... Wallpaper one was the one I felt the need to share with the world, actually

Hey, did you ever attend any of the local BMW meets? Or you're not that type of guy

Really beautiful photography. Can you post wallpaper versions of the garage pictures? Those were really impressive.

Thanks Be careful with the license plate, though... It'll look out of place on any other car, so it is a one time deal

There's a reason why I chose that street shot for a wallpaper... Lighting in the garage was tricky, and I'm getting some noise in those pics at higher resolution Anyway, here's the best I could do Click for big one:

OH GOODNESS! THAT LAST SHOT IS soooooOOoOO Amazing. Def. wallpaper material.

I would use it as mine, but I just switched mine out not too long ago, definitely going to save it though. Nothing but props

Wow...those are great! Is there any way you can provide the first wallpaper at a higher res? Like maybe 1600x1200?

In theory, but as you can see even at smaller size that I have it at right now there's plenty of noise present I don't think I can go any higher without making it look like some pixelated crap from the 80's

What model camera did you take those with? Are they all ambient light?

Canon 10D with 16-35 2.8 L lens... Only garage pics were taken on a tripod, outside pics taken by hand (which explains some of the noise, stoopid me) ... and yeah, no extra lighting. I'm an amateur, after all
