    #2 is by far the best all around shot...the others have serious focus problems.

    Pretty cool shots, just some focusing problems..Although #2 is pretty solid.

    I completely disagree with DRoberts; there's nothing wrong with the focus in any of these. If you look closely, you'll see that any blur you might notice is caused by motion, but the focus is nailed. These were all shot at 1/60th, it looks like, so I can see how motion blur is so visible. I think it works.

    The only exception might be that last one; I can't tell if that's motion, missed focus or both.

    Good stuff all around though, man!

    thanks man. thats why i asked what are the focus problems. because i was try to depict the car moving. a picture with the car completly still is boring, here i just focus on the front of the car and i want the back to blur a little but to show that its moving

    I agree, it looks like blur from movement and not a focus issue.

    Something you can try, is play with the shutter speed and try to follow the car with the camera. Once you find the right shutter speed you will freeze the car so it appears sharp but the background will remain blurred which will give the apprearance of motion.
