I am a fairly serious amateur photographer and I have to say you have tremendous talent. Do you enjoy taking real life photos as well?

Thanks for the comments everyone :)

@Tbear - I dabble with my digital SLR - although I find composition comes naturally I always struggled with metering/exposure/f-stops and all that technical stuff... thank you for the lovely comment though :)

I'm just the opposite. The technical stuff comes naturally, but I have to work at composition:)

Hey, I have been on this site for a while now, snooping about, posting etc.. and this is by far one of the best, if not the best thread to look at all sorts of cars... greats shots! i wish i had the patients to take all my cars for a test drive.
Selection of cars = Wicked...
The lil stories you tell after your drive = very unique ( well i have not seen anyone do this )
The C**k on page 1 tho = A Loser!
I like the fact more and more girls are getting into motorsport, do u reckon you could race with the big boys though? haha,
( I to have come across complete **** on this site, really dont see why people post negative posts )

anyway Excellent thread you should be proud ;)

Hey, thanks for looking that up. That one will look good on my Z06 RM! Actually, though, I was talking about this one:

You should post some of your ''drift cars'' at the drift forum when you can xD.

Time for an update... and I am only half way through my used car lot! (which keeps expanding)

Took the 350Z Roadster for a tour around Tokyo
GT5_0706_350Z1.jpg


Not a bad car at all
GT5_0706_350Z2.jpg


Ah... The Altezza Gita
GT5_0706_AltezzaGita1.jpg


Looks innocuous enough
GT5_0706_AltezzaGita2.jpg


But it has quite a bite! Handling on corners was, well, dire
GT5_0706_AltezzaGita3.jpg


Castrol NSX
GT5_0706_CastrolNSX1.jpg


It ate me for breakfast
GT5_0706_CastrolNSX2.jpg


Castrol Supra
GT5_0706_CastrolSupra1.jpg


Balanced more nicely than the NSX
GT5_0706_CastrolSupra2.jpg


This Classic 'Vette was a real treat
GT5_0706_ClassicVette1.jpg


GT5_0706_ClassicVette2.jpg


GT5_0706_ClassicVette3.jpg


As was this Ford GT
GT5_0706_Ford1.jpg


GT5_0706_Ford2.jpg


Very photogenic too
GT5_0706_Ford3.jpg


GT5_0706_Ford4.jpg


This Isuzu Bellett was great fun around Norwand
GT5_0706_IzBellett1.jpg


GT5_0706_IzBellett2.jpg


GT5_0706_IzBellett3.jpg


Highly recommended for some retro fun
GT5_0706_IzBellett4.jpg


The 2WD Daihatsu Move was quite a surprise
GT5_0706_Move2w1.jpg


Once you got over the understeer...
GT5_0706_Move2w2.jpg


It handled like a sports car around the city tracks
GT5_0706_Move2w3.jpg


Opel Corsa
GT5_0706_OCorsa1.jpg


Nothing to see here... move along, move along
GT5_0706_OCorsa2.jpg


This old Fairlady took some taming
GT5_0706_OlFairlady1.jpg


It was very tail happy
GT5_0706_OlFairlady2.jpg


Ah... the pink RUF
GT5_0706_PinkRuf1.jpg


The best fun I have had in a RUF
GT5_0706_PinkRuf2.jpg


Really well balanced - don't let the colour put you off ;)
GT5_0706_PinkRuf3.jpg


Honda Prelude
GT5_0706_Prelude1.jpg


GT5_0706_Prelude2.jpg


Renault 5 Turbo
GT5_0706_R5T1.jpg


I have driven the '80s version IRL
GT5_0706_R5T2.jpg


This older version was no surprise - enormous speed in a straight line and a killer on the corners
GT5_0706_R5T3.jpg


Yet another Roadster
GT5_0706_Roadster1.jpg


GT5_0706_Roadster2.jpg


...and another one
GT5_0706_RoadsterLM1.jpg


GT5_0706_RoadsterLM2.jpg


This RX-8 Concept RM was quite, well, entertaining
GT5_0706_RX8RLM1.jpg


The rear wing is far too small - not enough downforce
GT5_0706_RX8RLM2.jpg


So although it was blisteringly fast, the tail had a mind of its own
GT5_0706_RX8RLM3.jpg


Yet another S2000 - how many are there in GT5 anyway?
GT5_0706_S20001.jpg


Scooby in the snow
GT5_0706_ScoobyRal1.jpg


Beautiful shot spoiled by PD's poor texture quality
GT5_0706_ScoobyRal2.jpg


Yet another Skyline
GT5_0706_SkyGTR1.jpg


I am determined to find one that stands out from the crowd
GT5_0706_SkyGTR2.jpg


Finally - This Toyota Race Car
GT5_0706_ToyRC1.jpg


GT5_0706_ToyRC2.jpg


I call it 'The Widowmaker'
GT5_0706_ToyRC3.jpg


Hope you enjoyed them :)

@Duman079 - I would but, to be honest, most of my drifting is accidental ;)

There are tons of absolutely fascinating pictures here! Great job GRRRRRRRRRRL! 👍

You wouldn't mind taking a few pictures of any BMW at Nurburgring would you? :)

Amazing work here. I just love how you make the shots look like they feature premium cars.

Favorites: First 'Vette shot, first GT-One shot and the second 5 Turbo shot. Great work. :drool:

Love the Toyota shots. That car finally showed up in my UCD last week and fortunately I had enough moolah to pick it up. I also liked your Renault 5 rear shot. Very nice!

Huuuuuuuuuuge Update!

But I like, what you did there with the standard cars! Not everybody have the guts to photograph these things so close! :)

Very nice Pictures you got there though :)

I enjoy reading your entries; very 'top-gear' in some of the commentary for them. As far as announcing you're female, and people getting all stupid about it - I am female, and I get overlooked all the same.. so they're just jealous ;)

I need to do more photography in GT5, but I don't like monopolizing the HDTV.. lol

It seems to have been quite a while since my last update here...

The Charger was quite the beast but fun to drive
GT5240711_Charger1.jpg


GT5240711_Charger2.jpg


GT5240711_Charger3.jpg


This Chevrolet was hideous to drive though
GT5240711_ChevSS1.jpg


GT5240711_ChevSS2.jpg


I had a little drifting fun in this Skyline
GT5240711_Gskyl1.jpg


GT5240711_Gskyl2.jpg


GT5240711_Gskyl3.jpg


This M3 was super fun around Nurburgring
GT5240711_M31.jpg


GT5240711_M32.jpg


GT5240711_M33.jpg


I really don't get on well with the NSX
GT5240711_MobNSX2.jpg


Spent most of my time off the track
GT5240711_MobNSX1.jpg


I quite enjoyed this Nismo
GT5240711_Nismo31.jpg


GT5240711_Nismo32.jpg


But not this one
GT5240711_NismoS1.jpg


GT5240711_NismoS2.jpg


GT5240711_NismoS3.jpg


I was really disappointed with this Red Bull Audi
GT5240711_RBAudi1.jpg


All of that wing surface area and it lacked downforce
GT5240711_RBAudi2.jpg


This old skyline was fun though - lurching suspension made for an entertaining drive
GT5240711_SkySprt1.jpg


GT5240711_SkySprt2.jpg


GT5240711_SkySprt3.jpg


No surprises with this Volvo
GT5240711_Volvo1.jpg


GT5240711_Volvo2.jpg


GT5240711_Volvo3.jpg


Can you tell what it is yet?
GT5240711_VX1.jpg


I find the VX-whatever it is called totally uncontrollable
GT5240711_VX2.jpg


GT5240711_VX21.jpg


...and I never quite get the hang of the understeer in the Evo either
GT5240711_Yevo1.jpg


GT5240711_Yevo2.jpg


Finally - some Premium shots!
GT5240711_PremF5002.jpg


The Fiat (in girly matte pink) that I used in one of the seasonal events
GT5240711_PremF5001.jpg

Ahh, feels good to check this gallery again.

I like the first Evo III shot and the BLRA-3 shots.

You're making me jealous with that A4 DTM though, I badly wanted to have one.
