    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    to be honest: I like the cropping: boyh gates are fully exposured, and I like contrast and colors here. Nice photo

    I think that it's a very good shot of the car. For the future, I would watch out for the background as this one is kinda distracting. Maybe if you got rid of the writing on the doors it wouldn't be so much. Still a good pic!

    The background wouldnt be nearly as annoying if the shot were cropped better. There is no need to show all of those cargo doors in the background. Chop as much of those out as you can. THEN the shot will look good.

    i agree, a tighter crop will do the picture a lot of good... it's great colors & setting is excellent, but i think cropping the top around the top of the red thing on the door & chop the stairs out to the right makes it look nicer.

    great colors & setting though :)

    No amount of cropping will help this image.
    Good exposure. The background is too busy and the door occupies the space normally reserved for the main subject. The car is too centered. I also think the color is flat--could just be my monitor

    Looks just like the car photos we get in our premium car magazines down under in Australia.

    Maybe I'm a little biased because I drive a Nissan 200sx (Silvia) too, but for me the background adds to the image.

    It's one of those oldschool sports cars of front engine - rear wheel drive, and the background enforces that!!

    I think it appeals to the Japanese boy racers (with the race rubber and huge front mount intercooler) being set in the industrial enviroment, NICE SHOT!!

    PS: Love the car and mods.

    depth of field.
    it's when the background and/or forground are out of focus and the subject is very sharp....
    example:

    this was a pic i took a while ago, the background is slightly blurry making the car itself stand out a bit more... some of the macro photography in this forum has quite a deep dof where everything except the subject is blurred out of all recognition.

    Yeah, I would have loved to get this..

    The problem is the manual focus on the Coolpix 5700 is SO HARD to set because of the digital viewfinder.. I have to play with the auto-focus and this is the kind of result I get
