F1 LM Wallpaper photos

Well, here it is. I finished it up tonight and I really think it's the best photo of LM03 you'll find anywhere at the moment. (drewwtms is probably hiding some better ones ) It's certainly the best one that I have seen so far. As I mentioned in previous posts, this photo didn't start out looking so good. I put a lot of work into making it "right" in my eyes. You might wonder what all that means, but I'll wait a little while before I post the original.

There's two versions - one with the "F1 LM" logo, and one without. Both of these photos here are clickable for a larger (1024x768) version.





Enjoy the photo - It will probably be my desktop wallpaper for a while and hopefully some of you will like it that much too.

No, I was actually working that day so I took very few photos of the LM. And certainly nothing exciting.

That is a very good picture, by the way.

Well I didn't necessarily mean from that day. Maybe you haven't gotten around to taking photos for yourself yet. Nothing would stop me from taking 1000 photos of this car.

I'll say one thing - you guys really shouldn't leave the LM all alone like that in a public place. You should have someone standing guard at all times.

Well, if I told you that the photographer might not recognize the photo as his own anymore, would that surprise you?

I'm working on another at the moment, I'll share it when it's done. Then I'll put up the original of the first shot.

This is a shot of XP1 LM taken from a scan of a calendar. I've had the photo in varying degrees of quality for sometime now, but was never really pleased with any of them. Recently, someone at SC.net scanned the calendar again for me and sent me the high resolution version to clean up as I saw fit. Here's the finished product posted at 640x480 so as not to kill page loading times anymore than they already are.



If you would like a high res versions of this photo, I have uploaded them at various resolutions for different screen sizes. The highest res version is more than likely printable at 8x10" if you have a good color printer. If you try this, let me know how it turns out.

1600x1200

1280x960

1024x768

800x600

There's still one more new photo of Frank's LM from that BMW show that I'm trying to clean up and turn into a valuable photo. I won't make any guarantees as I haven't really gotten into it yet, but I don't think its going to be as big a challenge as the first photo.

Spectacular

Great job from someone who has altered too many shots. I have the original and it is amazing. Ya did an excellent job. The only problem I have is that I am not able to view the large photos. Is that happening to everyone or is it because I changed the settings in my firewall? Once again Spectacular job.
