fancying for a porsche - part 9

I have mentioned that a snow white car with black wheels is very difficult to photograph. Because in most lighting conditions the dynamic range between the highlight and shadow far exceeds the dynamic range capability of digital camera's imager by many magnitudes. Even computer LCD monitors has better dynamic range capability (though not to believe the marketing specs which is fudged with artificial test conditions designed to boost the "contrast ratio"). But our eyes are magnitudes higher - close to 1,000,000 : 1.

fancying for a porsche - part 8

Although my GT4 arrived last Thursday only today that I can legally drive it. The dealership in Florida that handle the transaction neglected to ship the car with a temporary license plate though I paid for as well as the processing of Oregon license plates. The temporary license arrived via Fed Ex this morning.
