    been real slow at work lately so they asked if i would take some pics to put on our website.
    figured it would be good practice. so any tips at all would be helpful.
    close up of the new mazda 6 emblem, was trying to get our sticker in there also.

    You need more DOF in the 1st and the other 2 don't really do anything for me..but if I had to choose I would choose 3. Maybe take some shots outside of the whole car lot.

    Yeah, I feel like the 'artistic depth of field' does not work for things you are supposed to read. Good idea, but wrong application I think. Maybe take the same shot, and stop down just a bit, then focus on the Z instead, so that the middle is sharp and both edges are oh so slightly out of focus.

    1: Not enough depth of field.

    2: eh, just doesn't "work"

    3: I like this shot but maybe get a little lower to the ground and slightly farther away.

    ALOT better!! I still think that the car lot's name should be the focus and not the emblem.
