    Well with my new found knowlege thanks from all the great people on here I decided today i'd shoot my old bike thats been sat in the shed for about 2 years rusting away :( I really miss it but can't afford to put it back on the road.

    I have edited some of the pics with various things just experimenting really and I think ive really nailed the aperture thing!

    It's difficult to tell what the pictures are even with the introduction. Also, several are out of focus. Try taking a step away from your subject in order to gain focus and clarity. For instance, in the first picture, the depth of field is difficult to grasp becasue everything is blurred and unfocused. Reshoot the shot after taking a step back, and I think you'll enjoy your result more because part of your shot will be in focus.

    Best of luck!

    I guess it is now I look at it must be because im a little tired here anyway yeah you can't really tell what the things are unless your a petrolhead really but I really don't like taking pics of the whole bike and my back garden aint exsacly the nicest of shooting locations.

    The only one I can see really out of focus is the first and second?? :confused: I turned the focus right down to a a few cm as any further the bg would come unblurred for some reason even at f2.8 :meh::confused:

    Good use of texture on #4. Most of these are too dark for closeups, however. You could try either using a reflector to improve how the subject is lit, or possibly decrease your shutter speed a couple of steps. Either of these might help you achieve the effect you're going for.
