I don't recall the width-There standard MB wheels

Reason I was asking motobueno, was that I went to the yoko tyre site link you pasted and the minimum rim widths for the open country tyres is 7 inches and my 2002 rims are 6.5 inch and then I checked the specs for the local Sprinter rims and even the 2009 model rims are only 6.5 inches.

Accordingly I would need to get wider rims????



Rollin Rollin Rollin.....

Those are great pictures. I hope someday I could take such great pictures.
Seems like you took the long way back to BC.

What settings are you using on your D300 and what sort of Photoshopping are you doing ? The colors seem to be very vivid and the dynamic range seems to be higher than normal ???

I use every tool available in the photosoftware toolbox. Photoshop (and its competitors) have revolutionized photography.
I use multiple exposures (bracketing) to increase dynamic range and stitching to achieve wide-angle telephoto shots.
The D300s usually work in "aperture priority" mode. I seldom use a tripod, even for HDR work.

I did, indeed take "the long way" home. It's usually better than the short way. Interstates are like food at McDonalds. Not so much a meal as a solution to a problem.

Glad you like the images. That's why I do 'em. : )

So are those multiple exposure HDR images ? Or single shots with a different color curve ?

I shoot with a 40D.

Most are straight shots, not HDR. The "Four Star Hotel" one and the Beartooth Pass shot are HDR. The wide ones are generally two images, stitched.
