Hey guys, just wanted to update you. Talked to the guy this morning and he will be sending me high res shots of that pic and a few others he got of me. He said they should be good for going as big as 24x36 if i want for a poster. I DO! Iwill post the high res pics when i get em. prob. a couple days though. Thanks for all the response. I LOVE this car

I'd see if he can edit out the poles and street signs and sky. It would look sweet has hell a bit more clean...

Your picture in hi-res will be the most popular desktop at any one forum by its members. I can guarantee it.

Oh yeah, I want a copy of it for all 3 of my computers.:)

Nice chop work Tony. :thumbsup:

But I think I like the pic with it all in there a little better because it gives it the look of being on the street. With that stuff chopped out it's starting to look like it's on a track somewhere.

The Tony Show
12-19-06, 02:28 PM
I kind of agree. I can do without the signs, but the wood poles and trees in black+white in the background give it a rustic look that's a neat contrast to the high tech car in the foreground.

I was just bored and like doing chops.

. . but the wood poles and trees in black+white in the background give it a rustic look that's a neat contrast to the high tech car in the foreground.

You have to remember Tony, that this is rural Pennsylvania, so you should add in some huge frost heaves to the pavement and a tri-axle dump truck in the background. :o

12-19-06, 07:09 PM
awesome chops!
i'd pay a few bux for a hi res shot, if your professional guy wants that, and i'd pay Tony a 6-pack to chop it up all nice and purdy :bigD:

+100 for that pic, at native resolution right off the memory card.
I know the B&W is artistic, but I would love the natural color shot.

My new background as well. The photographer is excellent.

Venomous-V
12-20-06, 05:14 PM
Update: I spoke with the photographer today and this is what he can offer.

His name is Chris Pino and his email is under0ath321@comcast.net (http://by121fd.bay121.hotmail.msn.com/cgi-bin/compose?curmbox=00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001&a=7ac92f882b52be01d3befbf32a65aac4f911344b5eceb9be a06adbbe7a979d18&mailto=1&to=under0ath321@comcast.net&msg=4B63EC34-541D-4D24-AD2F-71A30DA88C62&start=0&len=4183&src=&type=x). You can contact him here if anybody wants prints. He works at a professional photo lab and can do the following;(he will not give out high res on the comp.)

Prices are for high res on photo paper;
24x36 - $50
16x24 - $40
11x14 - $30
8X12 - $15

I have nothing to do with this so all further questions should go to him. He is an awsome photo guy and is doing a photo shoot of my car after the holidays! Thanks again everyone for the comments!Happy holidays!

I think the pic is absolutely fantastic. I'm selling my V, but will miss it(the M5 arrives on friday) I will order one of these have it framed and hang it in my home office. It will always remind me of the great times with the V.

Too Bad.
He would have several buyers for a digital high res.
I doubt there will be much interest in paper prints.

atdeneve
12-21-06, 09:04 AM
Yeah, what's up with that? We can't get a digital high res? I mean, we do appreciate his craft and all, but why the hell can't we get it in digital format? Fcvk that! Shit!

Anyway, thanks for inquiring.

Damn it! I want a digital high res! Who does he think he is!?! Bastage! How dare he?!? Ah, let it go, son.

Venomous-V
12-21-06, 09:48 AM
You guys who are interested in the digital format for the computer might want to try asking him and making a $ offer. just my .02 cents

$50 for a digital Hi-Res color from me.
He can collect all our money in advance if he is worried about us redistributing it.
Or he can just ask us, not to redistribute, and we will comply.
Or he can sell nothing, if he wants to sell paper prints.

Holy Krap Batman....that is awesome. The lighting looks like you are on a Hollywood set. Definitely put me down for a high-res pic. 1400 x 1050 is how I roll.

UPDATE: spoke to him today again. He said if you want digital high res pic for the computer just contact him by email and he will give you a price of $30-$50 depending on what you want... his email is back a page or two.

12-22-06, 08:08 AM
Great!

Lunarx, you know what to do, right? We all chip in. What was it, like 50 cents a piece? Arright! Get crackalackin! Let the redistribution begin! I want my digi-copy. Fcvk the Man! Be the man! Ihm da mahn! Ahhh, ain't the honor code grand. Heh heh.

Jes playin. We wouldn't do such a thing. We wouldn't dare. We couldn't. Us? Noooo.

But seriously, y'all think he might go for, like, 5 a piece? 10? 15 maybe? Damn, 50 seems kinda high, no? Arrriiight, back to plan A. Lunarx!

No, I kid. After all, it is the holidays. Must be good. Bah! Drink, hump, and be merry! Where mai bitches at?

Digital or no deal.

I guess I'll be happy with Tony's chop.... BTW.... love the last pic with all the stuff taken out. Allows you to focus (i.e. drool) just on the V. Absolutely beautiful (yeah, I said beautiful) in black and white.
