Tractors, Power, Rust: The definitive thread ;-)

Postby Thomas » Wed Apr 02, 2008 9:06 pm

Just inspired by Alex' posting here, I thought of opening a thread for all the collectors of tractor-pics. So come on: We don't love chrome, but we love the rusty power of those agricultural muscle-cars :wink:
Just post it!

Hehe, this is why I posted a 35mm/8.0 shot, so you can keep up (technology wise). But read Ken (Rockwell that is) about why "Your cameras doesn't matter". After that we can concentrate (again) on the uggliest, rustiest and dirtiest piece of vehicle out there. Take that:
