    1)Jacked the truck to inspect the dampers.

    Theres not much to comment because your subject(the new wheels) is nowhere to be seen?

    And 10 views is nothing.

    I do like 1st shot's composition though

    I actually like the "dreamy" look of the second photo. As someone who installs tires for a living, it shows what most of us are thinking while we work... Anything but what we are doing.

    It is nice to see that Tire Techs use the same crappy equipment the world over. :lol:

    Hi guys,

    I'm gonna dig into my files to find the wheels that has been replaced. I'm sure I took some shots of them. I know I shot the rims, Rims are cleaned and new tyre valves (for air) replaced.

    New tyres were filled, Love these babies. :hug::

    What's going on with the focus on this?? It's confusing me.... The jack is in focus but there's what looks like a jpg artifact around the back wheel of it,... The paint pot in the foreground is in focus but the axle stand next to it isn't and neither is the section of shelf inline with it. Same goes for the disc brake on show - it's in focus but the lower arm it's attached to isn't?

    Could be a nice pictures but to my eyes it's full of inconsistencies? has it been through any photoshop like programs prior to posting on here?

    Someone above mentioned the "dreamy" quality to the first two pictures, and I agree. However, since this is a car garage and it's all manly and oily and stuff, maybe use a PP program to make the photos look more gritty and "manly." Sorry, I don't know a better word to use!!

    This comment has nothing to do with the photos, but was that jack in the #1 placed on the oil pan to lift the front of the truck? You may want to check for damage if it was...

    Thanks for the comment. Yes, in post processing, not necessarily using photoshop, there was a soft focus effect added. Hence, as some mentioned, "dreamy". The original shot was taken at f5.6, leaving almost everything in focus, but it was too messy and lots of distractions (someone pointed out). But I am glad you can pin-point the objects in focus and out of focus. ;)

    Thank you Mr. Rat-man667, I've attached another photo of another day when I sent the truck for checking and wheel alignments, the jack was placed not at the center, but rather more towards the sides. I need to get under the truck to check for damages, thank you for pointing it out. You're a pro. :thumbup:

    Sloppy post-production in #1. You can see the effect clearly around the wheel of the red jack.
