im 6"3 so its alittle cramped but i make it work
(this is my first d40 pic lemme hear thoughts)
ummm well whats the iso setting seems to be soem noise to me....and secondly why does the quarter appear more in focused to me?
Nice, but the car's dirty!
quarter is more in focus. should of focused to the left a little more but overall nice pic.....cars dirty
Other than being focused (only) on the quarter, it looks good to my eyes. my exif data shows 200 ISO and I think that white stuff is mainly dust rather than noise. What I would've done differently (not necessarily better) would've been to use an aperture closer to f/8 to get both the car and the quarter in focus and to optimize sharpness. I would also probably set the flash compensation (if using the built-in flash) to around -.7. I also usually have my exposure compensation set at -.7 (Hail Ken Rockwell!) since the D40's metering is off a little. Seems to work pretty well with most things, though I usually don't shoot models like this.
