    I would think for #9 the lens you're working with is ok. You might try slowing your shutter speed and work on panning. This will blur the background but keep the car in focus. It will make the car look like it's in motion instead of freezing everything.

    1. get down more and consider your background.

    2. I would shift the focus a little deeper if you are going to work that shallow. The logo on the wheel is not enough out of focus so I want to see what it is.

    3. Nice. The colors and DOF work for me on this one.

    4. All the specular highlights make this busy even though out of focus. The subject doesn't quite seem in focus as well.

    5. Doesn't do a whole lot for me.

    6. I like this one a lot. The composition , dof and colors are very nice.

    7. I would boost the contrast & vibrance a little. I would like to see the boat pop more. Maybe crop to bring the boat forward as well.

    8. I like the composition and colors. I would like to see the badge be sharper though. A little more DOF.

    9. The background clutter detracts. This should definitely be a pan as stated above.

    There's promise in all of them and post could make a few of these a little better. Nice job.

    Very cool man. I used to drive around a jato. Had a local track that in the summer we used to hold timed 5minute races.

    That lens you got for starting out is great kit lens. I have the same one and in fact used that lens to take my profile picture for here and some of the portraits I have done. It pretty sharp for what it is at 135mm for portraits. Will be a good walk around lens till you learn some more bout photography and what you want to shoot. Good start man!
