Cheers guys, for liking my photos!

I used. CPL (circular polariser) to make the colour richer, which otherwise would have been very harsh sun light at midday.

Calvin, I didn't apply any tilt shift effects, it basically a narrow depth of field effect by shooting at large aperture, if you're talking about the very first pic, I actually mis-focus lol!

Well done to the SA members, looks like a very successful cruise. :thumbleft:

P.S. - it is not hard to pick Hella's car.

Well.. Im booked into REVs next week for a bit of an initial once over and we'll go from there.

He's got MazEdit and from what Jason's told me, he might be able to program the fans to come on earlier and stronger.

Will keep you guys posted in a new thread once I get a chance to check in with him.

Thanks Ripper for helping out monitor your cruising Coolant Temps. Put my mind at ease.

And yea... even during my solo run from Magil to Norton to Lobethal, the Temp gauge in the car didn't even budge, air con on all the time too.

cheers

Great photo's Ket - nice work! Thanks for censoring out the blonde swedish twins that turned up
and upon seeing the RX8 group couldn't help but go topless in a vain attempt to steal some attention
back, it helps keep this forum family friendly.

That would have been the biggest group of RX8's I've seen gathered in the one spot to date, awesome!
Great to see old and new faces and have a good chin wag. Unfortuneatly I don't have much video to speak of as
the batteries were flat within 15 minutes - I'm very carbon friendly!

Well done Rip's - thankyou again for your efforts in organising, as always a great ambassador for S.A. 8's. and
thanks to all those also that came along to make the day.

Also nice to see the build quality of ET exhaust in person, the double skin tip's are not only purposeful but look
the biz too, quality sound too without being obtrusive - all owners commented on the zero drone, have added to 'the' list.

...soooooo....when's the next one?
