I felt like some mental rather than physical exercise this afternoon, and for and hour or so all was well with the world

K3 and 10-17 Fisheye

Yes, love these! Looks like lots of fun!

The distortion had be guessing the car but I think it's an old Beetle? Don't remember the rag top having a roll bar though?

Great effects and the red is so striking! I love the timing of the first one to get the church in on the left, balancing the road.

Thanks for all the positive comments. I initially thought the 16-50 was going to be wide enough but ended up with the fisheye to prevent the camera having to be too far outboard of the car - I didn't fancy collecting any passing motor bikes The other problem I had was concealing the shutter release which was in my right hand.

Gareth gets the prize for identifying the car, although it's actually a Wizard of Rods Roadster, rather than a proper cabrio. It was my first car built back in '84, from a '61 saloon, when people did that sort of thing

These are great, I agree that the first gets my vote. The apparently high viewpoint is what makes these unique so if I strap a monopod behind the driving seat.......?

Gareth, your prize will have to be a coffee and sticky bun at the photograph show in July if it goes ahead

Thanks Philip, the car has not had much use since last summer, so it was good to blow the cob webs off!

Yes Rob, not sure if you were joking, but you definitely could use a monopod, or better still a tripod to triangulate the mount for more rigidity.
I did find vibration was a problem at the 1/20s I was shooting at (much more so than Iíve experienced before), and probably should have played around with the mount a bit more and used a third arms to brace it better. Iíve got some other ideas to try for next time.

Hereís the actual rig:

Striking first image, Simon. Lovely car, too - and that setup would have me cringing, even if it looks pretty solid!
