Hey people!

Well I was at the MPH Show this year, featuring Top Gear Live. It's a fantastic experience for anyone interested in cars!! I finally got round to looking through the shots so I'll post some from the car show first and maybe add some from the Top Gear Live arena later on.

Enjoy!!

Never really got into cars, myself. I like them, just never got into them. I like them all, but the Audi R8, there's not enough to the photo. The bokeh is just overpowering.

For future shows, get a CPL (polarizing filter) it'll reduce the reflections in the cars.

Like them all, but LOVE the R8 one, the bokeh is great actually, anyone in to cars will know exactly what that badge is and that adds to the photo for me!

Out of all of them I wish I had taken that one and that one alone :)

I'm a huge fan of Top Gear. You're so lucky to be able to see all of those super cars in person. My dream car is an Aston Martin DB9. I envy you so much lmao, hope you had a great time. Awesome pics, thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Jake, thanks for the tips; i guess it's a subjective thing.

Mark, great enthusiasm and I'm glad you like the R8 photo!

Shagrath, yep the Aston DB9 is my favourite too! The most beautiful car ever made in my opinion!

Lolita, the Veyron sure is a fantastic machine - 2.5 secs to 62mph! :D

Cheers,

Mark

Same here, I can't think of any other car that looks so good...There's just something about it.
