Convoy Photographs

Postby Sy V » Sat 18.04.2009, 22:02

I managed to capture an individual image of every Elan in the convoy bar two, who whilst identifiable, were too close to the car in front of them to get an absolute belting shot.
I'm just batch converting them from RAW (at about 15mb a frame) to .jpeg for e-mailing out on request. I'll let you know the average size of the .jpegs when it's done.
I'll also reduce a few of the 'faces' and post them in this thread to give you an idea of the shot you'll get.
I'm not cropping any images - they're all full frame.

Here's a sample of ten.
There's a limit to how many pink cars I'll post pictures of in one fell swoop!

The full size .jpegs are coming out at about 3.5mb.

If you want your car's picture, drop me a line and remember to include the VRN!

The lack of Blues is purely down to me not recognising the registrations and therefore their respective owners (who I know won't mind their cars being featured).
I do agree with the comment earlier though - Clemo and Algirdas do look like they're doing the Hitler youth thing!

who's that riding in Dave's car?

nice pictures, Simon!!

hopefully people will add more Donny pix soon. Any more of Simon's rollbars and fairings?

what was the final Elan count?

looks like it was a fantastic day -- maybe I can attend as an Evora owner next year . . .
