    We went out today to get some shots of my brother's '79 Corvette. I was hanging out of the sunroof (freezing) of the "camera car" and photographing the Vette. I was wondering what everyone thought, good bad I want to hear it. Thanks.

    Nikon D50
    Nikon 18-55mm
    Shutter priority mode (set at 1/60)
    ~60 mph in both cars

    The passenger is distracting, especially in the second photo. Would have liked them better with a slightly slower shutter to show some more movement and not cropped.

    Nice vette!! But I prefer trans ams..

    Thanks guys. I cropped them the way I did, because the background was really distracting with mailboxes, street signs etc.

    I found that the white balance was a little off. I corrected that and added some contrast to the car and road. I also removed the passenger.

    10 MPH and a slower shutter will get you the same shot, and not freeze you half to death. ;)

    That was my first thought. No need to do this at 60 mph.

    have you though about setting up a car rig? (I am not sure of the exact terminology on this though)

    Thanks guys. Rosshole, I plan on building a rig, but my photoshop skills are non-existant at the moment. I wouldn't be able to cut out the pole lol.

    I really like the comp of #1. Although, I've always preferred car shots from a lower perspective.

    How did you remove the passenger? I was thinking to just darken the whole windshield with the brush tool on PS.
