Snapped this one yesterday. I'm sure I'm not the only one who shoots portraits with a 300mm.

If I remember correctly, Nissan's R35 has an auto gear box that is pretty much faster than a stick shift.
I realize there are car afficionados out there who love their stick shift, but why not take advantage of the dual clutch auto and all the extra speed it gives you .
Oh man..you had the analogy going VERY well, until the end there with the car attempt....<P>
For a sports car, especially a high end sports car, you want a manual transmission...if not for resale value, but for performance.
You're generally gonna get the better times and stats with manual over automatic, if you know how to drive the manual...
I've never owned a car with auto transmission, and only one car have I ever owned had more than 2 seats (that one was an '86 911 Turbo, but those rear seats aren't really useable for anything but 2x bags of groceries).....
LOL...anyway, good thoughts on the camera, but ugh...a sports car with auto transmission? A waste of good steel....
As I understand it, the logic is based partially on the corporate overlords being concerned that video footage can be shot and put up onto Youtube, meaning that people wouldn't have to use the channel who've paid for exclusive Olympic rights and watch their advertising.That, and the fact that there are paid professionals who are doing their job. Letting everyone with a huge lens in will not only be a bother to spectators near you (potentially blocking their view if you have something that's long enough), but also risk taking away the official photographers' jobs.
There's a lot of bright color accents there, but the side pose doesn't have any interest (to me). Now some shots while on the side of the cliff, THAT would be interesting! Did you get any other shots?I agree with this pose being slightly dull, but a side of the cliff pose is kind of overdone, imo.
