    Hey, these are just some pictures of 2 cars that belong to my friends and my Rx-7. It was the first time I've shot in RAW and I kinda liked it. I still have a TON to learn but I wondered what people thought. Please, be as harsh as you want to be. I can take honest criticism. If you have any questions on the camera gear or cars I'll be happy to ask.

    fair enough. The shots do seem a bit uninteresting.

    You need a better surrounding for the cars. That is what is killing the pictures.

    Watch for poles and other things growing out of the car when you take a picture. Also.. watch your white balance.

    Most of them are too dark, but I really like the way you captured the headlights on your RX-7 open then closed.. That's pretty cool.

    P.S... I'd take your RX-7 over that 300 any day. NIce car-a classic. You can turn that rotary engine into a monster!

    Thanks guys. The rotary already IS a monster. It's faster than my old Turbocharged 2nd gen in my signature.

    As for the headlight trick, it's just 2 different exposures.

    I think I had exposure comp set to EV -2/3 so they were a bit dark, and digital exposure compensation in RAW gets a bit noisy. I had trouble with the white balance as there was an orange light to the left, and a white light to the right. So if I used the "white point" method it either made everything bathed in orange light white, and the white light blue, or made the white light accurate, and everything else orange.

    I'll take a better surrounding into consideration next time, and hopefully it won't be freezing cold, which distracts a lot from creative thinking.

    Thanks for all the help everyone.

    Yeah id say keep an eye out on your backgrounds. The park is a real eye sore to me.
