    Hello,

    This is my first post on this forum, the topic you have on here is a dream for me and alot others, probably you too. Well someday I hope to own one too, someday. :)

    Now to the subject. I flew home from Lebanon to Sweden a while ago and at the airport was this beautiful Ferrari 575 Maranello F1, i took some photos before the lady came and told me it wasnt allowed in the airport so i went to my flight, i was late anyways so. :)

    I liked number 1 most, but also number 2.

    About number 1;

    The Original image, untouched.

    After playing around with levels, only levels.

    As you can see when you make the image brighter you get more grain, to get it smoother i use Neat Image, its a great application, this is how it looks like after i used Neat Image.

    Warning, These images are 1-3mb big so you better not have 56k if you like to see them.

    Best regards,

    Nice pics! Love the shine on the red.

    How do you put the borders in your pics? Makes it look really classy :)

    And to back this up, you can order them without the badge. Which personally, I like better because if someone thinks its a 550, minus the front fascia and wheels, they'll get a 515HP smack in the face, 'cuz im Rick James beyotch!

    It was a price in a draw. :)

    To make the borders just mark the whole picture in photoshop with like CTRL+A, choose stroke, inside and how many pixels and color.

    Is there anything else then the headlights that give the 575 away? I mean exterior.

    Thanks.

    Front end, hood, wheels, and of course, the lights.

    I never own any red car before. Now I am convinced that Red is really nice on 575M with 19 inch wheels

    The curves on a 550/575 are one of the sexiest.

    IMO, it is better-looking than the Enzo and 612.

    You really have to see one in person to appreciate the beauty of this car.

    Many thanks for the pictures.

    regards

    It's more like the "budget-10d", it's not that new as I bought it in late December, by new years eve. It went for around 1300$ house, lens, and 256mb memory. 10D and 300D got the same 6.3megapixel chip though, they had too do the camera worse with the firmware in the 300D so it got worse then the 10D, excuse my english, I hope you understood that last sentence.

    If you're looking into a Digital SLR I'd say, it mostly depends on if you have any lenses from the past, Nikon or Canon, Nikon just released a similar product to the 300D but it has been getting better reviews, called the D70.

    And it also depends on the money of course, the 10D is good too. Good luck. :)
