Hi,

my name is Marius, I'm 30 years old and I live in Germany playing Forza since Forza Motorsport 2, but this is my first visit in the world of Horizon.
I've never taken much photos in the previous Forza games though.
I like the variety of cars in Horizon 2 and taking pictures of them, but I also like taking landscape photos as many of my reallife photos are landscapes.
So here are my first attempts in forzatography, hope you enjoy them ;)
All photos in this gallery are stock unless stated.

Really like the 4th and 5th shots with the Land Rover. Beware of the addictive nature of Forzatography........Once bitten it's an itch that has to be scratched.
Think I've spent more time taking photos than racing in the last month!

Thanks Sergi01978 for your feedback.
You're so right about the possible forzatography addiction ^^ I've started taking pictures last weekend and in every Horizon session since I've taken more pictures than in the previous one...

Thanks a lot guys for your compliments!

@Lethal Drift:
Unfortunately I've not been very active at Flickr for quite a while now (some years? huh..). Many real life changes and pause in photography.
Due to forzatography, I think I'm going to upload some real life photos here and then in the future ;)

Nice work! Your composition is great. May I suggest that you may want to calibrate your tv settings so it matches what comes up on the computer? You'll get better control over contrast that way

Thanks iHomie for your feedback.
I've calibrated my TV with the tool included on xbox one or do I misunderstand? The brightness level in Forza though is set at default.

I've splitted up the update because it actually consists of two small series.
This series is from yesterday evening, I was messing around with my new 1980 Abarth 131.

Looks really good so far Guguhypes! You seem to have a knack for scenic shots. If I can, I'd suggest maybe posting larger pictures. It's probably just me, but I feel like I'm squinting to get a good look at some of your works. Anyways, keep going. I can't wait to see what else you do.

Cheers,
Ace

Thank you Ace for your kind words!
Don't do the links on the photos work properly? I've adapted the size of my photos in this thread according to other members photo sizes in this forum. But I can try to post larger previews.
You're also very welcome to visit me on flickr ;)

Thanks a lot for visting me again Sergi01978! I'm starting to get addicted to this new pastime ^^ Yesterday evening I've barely completed a few races, always pausing the game for photomode.... so a new batch is coming soon...

No need to stop racing though :D

You really do have a talent for scenic shots Guguhype. The last one is particularly eerie. If I could suggest one thing, I'd say to remove the vigenette. It is put on at default and many people don't notice it, but it does creep in to the shots. Removing it will get rid of the small fading marks in the corners and brighten up the shot a little. Keep 'em coming!

Cheers,
Ace

Thank you guys for your feedback.

Thanks Ace for the advice regarding the vignette. I've nerver payed attention to it, but it really makes the shots darker. I've compared them with and without vignette.
For now on the vignette will stays off ^^ next update coming soon :)

After a few days break I'm back with two Updates :)

First a set created while racing and cruising with the 2012 Ferrari Berlinetta:

Back from a short trip on some inlands dirt roads


The weather helped me to clean that Ferrari


All shiny and clean again



Even the exhaust


I thought that with this brightly polished car I can visit a friend nearby. So I was driving there ...


... and parked the Berlinetta in front of the gate. Unfortunately it hadn't stopped raining for ringing the bell ;)

The second set is about fooling around with the BMW X5 (some more shots, sorry I couldn't resist the trigger...)

On my way to the next stop of the autotour after purchasing the BMW X5


What does he want from me? (oh no! he's a drivatar ^^) ...


... $§"!@##**"!!


Finally I managed to arrive at Sisteron in one piece


Couldn't wait to explore the muddy riverbed with that white X5





Scenery impression


dirt.., done again :D



That's it for now :)
Cheers

Your scenic shots never fail to impress me Guguhype! I'm not usually a fan of split updates but you do seem to pull it off well. My favorite shot from the F12 Berlinetta update is

To me, all Ferrari's (save for a handful) should be either Rosso Corsa red or Giallo Modena yellow but the F12 looks nice in blue. I love the sunlight dancing off the glass and the rain on the gascap. The brake lights are a nice touch too.

As for the second set, my favorite photo has to be

I like this photo a lot because it reminds me of the roads in Northern Ontario near Temagami where my family rented a cottage. The scenery was beautiful when the weather cooperated for us. I would suggest dropping the exposure and brightness a little bit, as it will reduce the glare and whiteness so that you can see the trees along the riverbed more clearly.

Cheers,
Ace
