    I just started taking pics with my new D80 not too long ago. I'm still learning the basics of using photoshop too. I used Adobe Photoshop 7 to edit these pics. Hopefully getting the CS2 from my friend real soon.

    I'm into cars and loves taking pics of cars, so please don't mind if most pics I post are all car pics.

    any opinions and thoughts would be appreciated

    Thanks,
    Will

    I love cars:)


    My personal preference is to take photos at very low height looking up for cars....like your last pic.

    The first 4 photos doesn't make for me. I thing the background is too distracting or too busy somehow, altought, the cars are exceptionally nicely captured.

    #5 is also great, but I would cut the whole background out and leave the white car only.

    The rest is very nice for me.

    #8 is my absolute favorite. Very cool!

    Great job!

    The last two shots are my favourites, some of the others I find a little distracting. Butthe last two compositions are great IMO

    Saw these over on Nasioc. Like the ones of the R32 and the ones of the STi. The ones of the S14 dont really do anything for me.

    Your shots are well captured nice job. The shots under the bridge and in frount of the rack of dry stored boats are best due to your choice of background.

    quite like them all (partly also because I have owned 3 of the cars you have shot & brings back fond memories). As already said, I too like the low shots of cars.

    Nice choice of backgrounds.

    thanks for all the comments people :D I'm glad I joined this forum. my friend chose the location for the first 4 pics, and I only spent bout 10 minutes because I thought the same as you guys (too busy on the background), even tho I kinda like how the first pic turned out.

    Sorry to bump a semi-old thread but I LOVE these pics. I'm here because I wish I could take pics like these.

    I would love to know the EXIF data for #5 and #6 so i can try settings close to that.

    I'd love to get some feedback from a fellow car guy, please check out my thread:

    my favorite shots
    **** dude, you and your friends have some nice cars. that skyline is sechs. anyways, people are saying that first locations background is too busy. Ya, but if you shot it again it could definitely work. Some ideas would be to be closer to the subject, shallower depth of field and maybe burn the background in post. The skyline photo I quoted is money. again some thought the background was a little busy, but I think its fine. The contrast of the white paint to the rest of the photo is more than enough to attract your eye. clean rolling shot. keep it up!:thumbsup:
