    Last night was a fun one. My friend keith was up from houston with his brand new corvette. We decided it would be a good night for some car photos so we headed out to get some shots. We were taking some photos by these railroad tracks, just when a resurfacing train sparked by. It made an awesome backdrop to some already cool photos! Enjoy!

    these are really neat. my only critique is the exposure. the sky is fantastic, but the cars just get lost (#3 excluded). i really like the composition and surroundings. the cars just need some kind of light on them.

    i really like these shots!!!
    but yes, the exposure is off unfortunately
    they have a lot of potential!
    #1 and 2 are my faves
    i think i'd like the first one a lot more with a tighter crop to emphasize the graffiti and if the exposure was altered
    nice work though - keep it up :)

    wow those are some incredibly beautiful photos. I really like #3 with all those nice starbursts and an awesome looking sky.

    one option you could do is setup for a longer exposure and "paint" with your off camera flash (fired manually with the test button) to get the exposure correct/closer. if you turn the power way down on the flash you should be able to light up tons of angles to give is a ton of depth and make it dramatic.
