    Great looking photos! I can look at the coupe photos all day.

    Mistercoffee2, it's called "depth of field" a photographic phenom that places soft focus on everything but the desired center of attention for artistic effect. Possibly you could improve your posts by adding proper punctuation after your questions?

    Just joking. Or am I? Possibly you were joking? ; or not?

    I can see where MD_Coupe wanted the point of focus to be but the photos are soft throughout. Could be camera movement of maybe low resolution in the posted photo.

    Thanks for the lesson anyway. I will be happy to compare photographic credentials with you if you like. You first.

    Punctuation You have got to be bull s..ting me On a forum Is that the best you can do

    Try this

    Sweet work of art Mr Coffee! Lol, but I don't think he meant for you to take it so personally. I'll have to agree with you that the pics are soft. Even though I was shooting with an IS lens I just couldn't steady my hands very well. It's been a long time since I had dusted off the DSLR and it shows but I'm still happy with them in general and hopefully others like them as well.

    That color blue on that coupe is nice! What color interior? Keep the pics coming...

    Sorry, I thought it was funny, you know, punctuation. I also thought the took all the personal out of it.

    But the lesson in depth of field was a bit condescending.

    Re: Random Caddy pics

    The interior is gray leather. Would have liked the beige a bit better but I get constant compliments on the car and color. The great thing about my area is that coupes are really rare. And the Opulent Blue is non existent!!! I bought it out of town and even the dealer I am doing service at said they have never seen a coupe in the blue!! I love the uniqueness of this car.

    Well with out knowledge of your photographic history and your punctual(pun?) statement that the pics made you dizzy it seems to have been an appropriate post. That being said...and with your stated experience with a camera...it would be nice if you had shared some of your crisp Caddy pics here .

    Re: Random Caddy pics

    Jeez. I took my pics with my iPhone. Can't believe I'm not getting crucified here.
    Now I'm going back and looking at the shot composition. Terrible! The critical focus. Awful! The angles and backgrounds. Amateur at best!! I have no right to even take pics with a phone!!!!!

    I thought the OP's shots were artful and nice. But what do I know.

    Sorry, I no longer do photography. I'm happy to leave it to the pros like you and I'm happy in my role as critic.
    But I have posted many pictures here, all done with an iPhone, most of them out of focus and none of them meant to be artistic.

    Don't give up. I'll let you know how you're doing.

    You misquoted me twice. I never used the word dizzy, and I stated no experience with a camera, I did offered too, but if it works better for you just make up whatever you like.

    Your pictures are good snap-shots of your car. The photos posted by MD_Coupe were meant to convey an artistic element. It is that element that drew my criticism. They were "nice". But had no focal point.

    Hello MD_Coupe,

    I think that those shots look great! It definitely catches the appeal of the CTS and the gorgeous design of the vehicle. Laura and I are even thinking about making one of these pictures our background! Great looking car!

    Hello dlpuette,

    Your pictures look great as well. I am a big fan of the Opulent Blue as well! You’ve got a very unique, beautiful looking vehicle there.
