    A Few Pictures Of My S3.

    I took these yesterday at a local meet, My photography isnt to good as im kinda new to it, My friend with the awesome A6 will be on the forum soon...(Yes that is a Civic BUT it would give an RS4 a run for its money ) Comments etc are welcome.

    I see alot off who have silly amounts of snow? Its sunny down here for some reason?

    Enjoy.

    It has the 2.2 lump out of the prelude with a big turbo bolted on . Wouldnt outrun anything in the wet but in the dry it would leave most things standing...

    The engine is worth more than the shell then.

    You need to clean your sensor or lens mate, using a smaller aperture (f/14 in some of your pics) really shows the dirt up...

    +1.

    The spots in the images are at pretty consistent locations, which is one of the tell tale signs of it being on the sensor (with certain lens configurations the spots can move a bit at different focal lengths - even in those cases, static spots could be a dirty rear-element).

    Give the front element of your lens a clean with an air blower (rubber bellow type thing, not canned air) and lens cloth, a blower and a swab or narrow lenspen will clean the rear element. Take a test shot at f/22 of a white/fairly light coloured wall - hopefully you'll get a pretty long exposure, during which you can 'wave' the camera around the wall a bit to blur any detail in the wall.

    If you've still got spots in your image, there's dust on your sensor. Get your air blower to hand, and choose sensor cleaning in the set-up menu of your 350D. Once you've activated it and you hear the shutter open, remove the lens with the camera facing downward, and with the nozzle of the blower a couple of inches outside the lens mount, give it a few squirts. Turn the camera off and you'll hear the shutter close, replace your lens and test again...

    Hopefully the spots will disappear, if not you might need to think about an Arctic Butterfly or a sensor cleaning service...

    ...Anyyyway... Nice shots The composition on the second one is really good! Number 5 is pretty good too. I think the first shot would gain some impact if you straighten the horizon. I quite like the A6 ones too, but I think there could be a little more space in the frame around it. The one with your S3 and his A6 too.

    Overall though, impressive work. Particularly as I say, 1, 2, and 5...

    Let us know how you get on grappling with those spots and keep up the good work!

    Rob.

    The truth they're trying to keep from you is that IPv6 has nothing to do with address space; we're actually running out of full stops.

    What power is the Civic running then? Must be pretty fast with that lump in it, very light cars!

    RS4's are quite fast though...

    Thanks for the advice Rob, I will get it sorted ASAP as its starting to bug me. Like i said im new to the photography scene so my photos arent 100%. I am impressed with a couple of them

    @Ianysm

    Not sure on power figures with the civic but i know its running with lowish boost to be on the safe side....My friend use to own a stripped out S3 powered Polo and that use to scare RS4's, But this Civic just use to go past this Polo with ease.
