    I got the Scout 1.1 and was bad as I ordered a ZYX R-50 Bloom 2 MC to be set up on it upon arrival. Even i am saying ouch on this one. But I feel it will be worth it. All though I spent more than I wanted, this combination still comes in at less than the Classic I really wanted. And it will no doubt be a jump higher than what I have been listening to. Now to find out if my aging ears can tell the difference.

    My Denon DP2000 bit the dust a couple weeks ago. So I just replaced it with a vintage factory sealed NIB Denon DP62L I found on fleabay. I will be moving the MC104 to it today. I also want to dive into a new TT. So far I want a VPI Classic but they are a little more than I am willing to pay. I am biting my nails on pulling the trigger on a used VPI Scout 1.1 that is a steal at 1500. That would give me a vintage decent DD and a modern high end belt drive as my JVC is getting tired.

    I think the "clutter" in this case adds to the ambience and immersion of the photos. I really get a sense of being there; the rumble, the smell, the crowd. You're definitely improving, Larry :)

    Some is good and adds as you say. But ordinary vehicles and the paid 'media' photogs really screw up a lot of shots. It just drives me crazy. Actually these are some of my best non cluttered pics yet. I played with elevation to achieve it here.

    Not sure what it is about your photography of race cars, but you seem to be capable of capturing more color in your photos than I think I have ever seen. Colors really seem to pop out at me. Maybe it's in my head, but it doesn't seem typical of this subject matter. I would be curious to see how you could approach race photography with a macro lens or in that vein. Not that what you are doing is bad or you should do macro instead or anything, just curious what the potential is.

    Hmmm, I think my distain of dull race cars makes me push harder to get more color. I also have invested in some top end glass and try to use the light to as much of my advantage as I can. I also push a little but not a lot in post.

    BTW the first pic of the Mustang is as shot other than a minor trim job.
