I saw somewhere on the board of a beautiful black M5 picture with a super sunset in the background. So I wanted to show off one of our California "Sunsets" and "Moonsets" of a 2010 Silverstone M6. Both pics from Ventura CA. Color of the car, for what ever reason looks different between the two pics, maybe because the moonset was done with a long exposure at night. Camera was a Canon D5 with a 70-200mm lens.

The Wheels are Maya 20 inch. And Maya has gone out of business. You can see more pics of my 2007 and 2010 M6 with these wheels in my profile.

Its pretty simple, you have 4 options

RD Sport Springs - Most aggresive drop
H&R Sport Springs - Medium aggresive drop
Eibach Springs - Least aggresive drop

OR

If your willing to drop $2500, go with KW V3 (full coilovers)

amazing shots, just wondering is it the new D5 MKII?? coz i heard that in those you dont really need a tripod to take a decent shot when light is low. and what is aperture on ur lense?? as fas as i know its hard to get good aperture on those telephoto lenses.

btw the roof in the first pic looks pretty wet, is humidity quite bad where u live??

The Canon is the EOS 5D and the lens is the EF 70-200mm 2.8 L IS USM, the high dollar lens. The moon shot was a 3 second exposure with ISO of 100 and F/7. The Sunset was ISO 800 with F/4.6 and 1/250 exposure time. I did not notice the moisture on the roof, but I was there for almost an hour to make sure I got the perfect shot. That may explain the moisture and we do not have the high humidity in my home town as it is always pleasant especially along the coast line. Also I did not notice the "Oil Rig" in the forground of the sun until I posted this online. Thanks for the interest as I love taking pictures and will soon post more in my portfolio.

TThe first picture is lovely!
Gustav
When you were here in the USA and you drove the coast to Santa Barbara, you went right past where that first picture was taken. We often has sunsets like that. And last week just lowered the M6 with KW V-3 Coilovers so I will have to take more pictures soon.
