Thanks everyone, maybe I've described it badly but it's not a photography holiday, I just want to get the best photos I can get from the places we go see.
I think I'll take both primes if I have space and leave the tripod.
Hi, got my honeymoon to Hong Kong, Seoul South Korea and Japan coming up in may.
I'm keen to take my 5d mk1 with me, but I've not got a great selection of lenses. I'm thinking would it be enough to take a nifty 50 and a 28mm f2.8 prime, travel tripod and filters.
Reason I ask is i can't...
Third shoot of 2017 for me, a Mclaren 570GT in white with Graphite coloured detail.
Only the one image to post for now:

As always, open to crit, both good and bad.
Will post more late,
Love a performance estate.
Only shots really missing are a dead centre shot from the rear (high or low) and a couple more shots showing the carbon and intricate details. Otherwise spot on.
Video looks really good, only thing I could think to say would be watch out for stray street lights...
Thanks Phil, appreciate the feedback, I've had similar about the floor material which is a shame as it's such a good spot for lightpainting. Next set I'm trying to reduce the lighting on it in pp.
Is there anything glaringly obvious that's wrong with the external 3/4 shots?
Well second shoot is now out of the way for 2017, a lovely Lotus Exige V6 ins striking yellow.
Here is a small selection of some of the shots taken:

First shoot out of the way for 2017, a drfit spec BMW E36.
Shot in a small shed full of stuff in the freezing cold.
Comments and Critique welcome as always (good & bad):

As @foggy4ever says, a CPL is your best friend with this sort of stuff.
I really like the location (and the GTR), a CPL will make a wonder of difference.
Don't skimp on which one you buy and it'll pay for itself :)
#8 would be my pick, closely followed by #5, then #6.
#2 & #7 the weakest, #2 would be better with the car in the centre and #& doens't suit the central crop and the car angles upwards.
Nailed the interior shots as per :D
So...I've considered starting a project like this for the past three years, but never do and always "forget".
So I'm starting this to encourage me to actually finish a project, rather than plan, accumulate and forget.
Brief: Use my Product Photography Light Tent (used once I should add), to...
Lovely car and I like the wrap.
I'd watch the white balance (looks blue/purple on my screen) and some of the light streaks on the both the front, light and wing mirror as these could be easily cleaned up at the shoot or in PP.
I like the framing of the car, enveloped in darkness suits it, very...
Just a couple from me:
Location: as with light painting you really need to watch ambient light or account for it with a higher lower f-stop, with the shallow D.O.F in your other shots, it'd suggest why the ambient light is so bright in comparison to the flash.
White Balance: if you can't get...
Shots look amazing, nice to get a look at them before we fly out on Firday for a few days. Not sure I'll be able to take anything similar, very impressive.
Intention is to take my CSC point and shoot, least better than a phone camera.
We've booked golden circle, blue lagoon, northern lights...
Thanks Daniel,3's something I've tried once before just as a bit of fun, ended up working out quite well then if it led to confusion initially :D
It's actually his boss's unit, chance happening, helped that it was practically immaculate in the middle of a dust bowl.
Finding more and more with...
So since my other thread keeps loosing Flickr links, I'll stick to posting a thread every now and then instead. (Old thread HERE)
Most recent shoot for me, a serious drift spec Nissan Silvia S14 'Kouki' from a local lad who's part of @doric_drift on Instagram.
As always comments/critique...
Not a lot has happened since May, shoots gradually picking up now the nights are getting darker and being more proactive in contacting people.
Busy working away on S14 Kouki and Rx-7 shoots as we speak.
In the meantime here's a capture from a recent trip round the NC500:
