Maybe it is your lighting.

At the right time even shots with my galaxy note 2 will look stunning.

Try when it is really overcast after a rain or between 4:00 and 6:00pm.

I prefer afternoon shots over morning shots because Id rather shoot into the dark than the blinding sun around 10am. Start at 4 and that should give you at least an hour of awesome lighting and around 5:30-6 it'll start getting too dark.

These shots were taken with a Canon 10-28 lens.

Maybe it was bright as fuck outside and all the lighting was trying to enter through one source... the open garage.

I really think you'll get some better shots with the right natural lighting.

Here are some of the RAW pictures that swoosh took with my camera. I've downloaded them to .JPEG's, but these are uploaded from Flickr....






























Hopefully these pictures are better!

Hate to say it but it still looks out of focus. Does seem a tad better than before, though.

Carbon Fiber dash installed today. Pictures coming when there's more light and no rain.


In the mean time, I'm building an arc........

I'm working on that flat-bottomed steering wheel already, KK!


There is one vendor who wants $1,035 (plus my OEM wheel). I think it's WAY too much. I'm keep in my eyes open though....

Absoutely love the overall C7 styling and it's a beauty! But somehow I also agree with a couple previous posts that I don't totally feel the rear end. Somehow between the taillights and the trunk lid spoiler it just looks too much like a Camaro. I'd be curious to see it with some other spoiler. In any case, they did a beautiful job here and congrats Steven!

Is that vendor in Concord Ontario? i saw his ad and his steering wheel looks awesome. GM would probably charge much more for that upgrade.

Would be nice if the Z51 package included that lol.

Thanks Jhumbo-honestly, this thing looks SO much better in person! You'd love the lights if you saw them.

So beautiful.
Making the black contrast continue with a tinted windshield would end up looking amazing Steven.
Begging for it since the frames are painted black as well...

However, if I owned one I'm not going to be looking at the back end a whole lot so screw it.

CF DASH-

You sure have a beautiful car Steven!

Thanks guys! I'm praying for another late Winter-that's for sure....


I met a friend of one of my closest friend who owns 4 Corvettes. He has three 1965's and this ZR1.

The Kansas City version of Cars & Coffee was last Friday at KC Trends. The event is called Fast Fridays! Here is the picture taken of the cars in attendance. Notice the first car in the lineup in the upper left hand corner!

My buddy has a ZR1 and just got a yellow C7 and says the styling and interior is far better in the Stingray than his ZR1... but the ZR1's power makes up for it for now.

At least he'll do donuts slowly, but I would suggest having him move away from the light pole.
