    We took the car down to the California Central Coast for the President weekend. Here are some pictures on Highway 1.

    Dude, you know better to show your car with orange side markers. Other than that, very nice pictures. May need to make the trip up there this weekend.

    Re: Some "winter" pictures in California

    I love your pics... Thanks. ..and it makes me realy want to go back to CA

    Re: Some "winter" pictures in California

    Thanks for sharing - lovely pics You must have had a really great time

    Your pics are so good, they make me feel like emigrating to a warm, sunny country It's cold, quite cloudy and quite dull here today

    Re: Some "winter" pictures in California

    Nice photos... but I think you need a little bit more practise with PhotoShop

    Re: Some "winter" pictures in California

    Nice pics, you guys in Ca have it tough.

    Re: Some "winter" pictures in California

    Very Nice, thanks for posting.

    Re: Some "winter" pictures in California

    Very attractive snapshots. Wish I were here too.

    Only watch out your flash power, especially when shooting the car (foreground) at incadescent light (background). These shots are kinda overexposed, but are great anyway. No worries however, PS works miracles.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Re: Some "winter" pictures in California

    Thanks for the tips.
    I bump the ISO to 1600 for the night shots. May be too much?
    I do need more practice on PS to correct these.
    Any tips are welcome.

    Nice scenery you got there and the skyline is really amazing!.. I'm pretty jealous since we have got some more snow today and it's pretty damn cold!... And I can't use my porsche with summer-tires

    Regarding the camera settings and some tips... it's of course dependent on what camera you have, regarding the amount of noice you get if you bump the iso-level. If you've got a good system camera you should for sure be able to bump to ISO800 without adding any noticable noice. My advice though is that you lower the ISO and instead take the picture with a longer shutter-speed to compensate the lower iso. Test e.g. ISO100 and Shutterspeed of 1/8 sec -> 2 seconds. You will then also get more glowing lights and a more "warm" picture. If you don't have image stabilizer in your camera I recommend you to use a tripod. ... And since you have no movement in the picture it would cause no problems using longer exposuretime. Higher ISO is more useful if you photograph moving objects when the light is bad because you otherwise get a blurred picture... Final advice is not to use the flash because you will get an unnatural picture with weird reflections and so forth. Always better to use tripod + longer exposuretime

    Good luck and thanks once again for sharing the pics... Keep 'em coming

    /Lukas
