Took these on our drive from Jaipur to Agra. The drive was over 5 hours so I was clicking away :? I slapped on my polarizer and seat belt, guy was driving around 80-90 mph :O The polarizer almost cut all of the glare from the side window Hope you enjoy my photos!

Thanks for looking!
Chris

Or photographers...Isn'tthat yourwife holding a camera at the backseat? (not a make up box or a portable DVDI suppose:-)) Great feat for a 'front -seat -photographer' :G

Joke aside,they are very well saturated pictures and each conveying sth,stopping the observer to ponder on for some timeYou've once again proved thata polariser is a must have inthe camera bag!!(Though I seldom use mine, I'm glad to know, when it is needed, it is there, since there's no otherway!!)Oh, you did not take themall from the car, did you ??

Thanks Bahadir! :-) I gave the polarizer a try and it worked out! I probably could of gotten sharper shots, faster shutter, without the polarizer but the glare was bad. Thanks to PS I was able to sharpen them up a bit That's actually me wife's best friend in the back seat :-) She was fixing her makeup :? You're right the 8th photo was taken at a gift shop :-) The girls need the ladies room and I had nothing to do :G

BTW What size are the photos on your monitor? I post them at 900x600 but they're showing a lot smaller on my Mac. At work, PC, they show as original size. Don't know why this is? Thanks again Bahadir!

Oh, I see! I will enquire no more, my friend :-)About the passing time when the girls are in the ladies room, one should feel, at least,lucky if he does not have to hold their bags but have the liberty to shoot around while they are in :G

Anyway,the beautifulimages above are 640X427 on my monitor, whichlooks quite allright Yet, sometimes 'bigger better' toan extend you know! Well, I haven't had any experience with phototime, yet flickrhas worked quite good for me so far!

:GMy wife was sitting next to her :G No funny business :G I was holding their bags :? When they werein the ladies room I dropped the bags and snapped that :|:G

I figured out what was wrong. I went over my bandwidth :O Fototime will resize to the original posting size once the month is over. Looking at the pics now they seem fine at 640 x 427. BTW I have a lot more "front seat photography" to post :?I've been too lazy to resize thephotos to post

Yea, I knew that!...or else what should you be doing at the front seat like a Sahib :G

Btw, I've justnoticed that every time I come back to your post I can't help but observe #3, #7, #12, #15 and the ones in between once again

Looking forward to seeing the rest ofyourfabulous travel's pictures!
