I make you correct there.
Your all other photos are excellent compared to your car one.
You car looks loveley, but playing with DSLR is bit hard. I must say, you have still managed to take a good shot.

In my case, as I was in the car park and AE lights were on, therefore it was hard for the camera to get, which is focusing periority.
If you focus the AE rings, car will come up dull and very black, as camera's shutter with adjust light entrance according to the light coming from AE.

However if you focus the car, then lights become overexposes (in my case) and that was the best way around it.


Thanks for compliments and keep polishing your photos. I guess more we play with DSLRs, more we learn.

Thanks Conversion Champ!
You inspired all of us, and here are the results.
I would have never known much about the conversion, if I bought LCI. Yes, it is worth of time and effort doing conversion.

Thanks Carl for the compliment. I think LCI OEM with M sports plus looks good enough. I think new wheels can go on it.
