A friend agreed, at threat of his life, to let me take photos of his stock RX8. So I did. And here they are with the first three being HDR:

your third shot is amazing; great sky and sweet angle... lots of great pictures there. seems like your first 2 pics focused on the building, but love the location and the composition. really like the use of light on some of the silhouette shots. good stuff!

Thanks! I really appreciate it.

The first shot has the AF point on the door but yeah, the second shot is actually focused on the building, unfortunately. Sometimes the camera just decides to be a bitch with the focus points. My eyes have a difficult time picking up manual focus' accuracy for a number of situations. But with HDR, if one shot is not in focus out of the three (or more) then it kinda throws things off. I think that might have happened with that one. With practice, hopefully, I'll just use manual focus exclusively.

Thanks again!
