    I had the Nikon D40 w/lenses kit for about a 2-3 month now and been reading and learning each time using it. I also start to get into PP. Here is a few of my recent photo of my car. All taken with the 18-55mm lens

    These have been into PP:

    This was taken when I was still playing around with settings (about a month ago):

    c&c please, I want to get better. I am currently saving up for a tripod and a new lens (18-200 VR lens).

    nice car, nice shots. I think for #3, he isolated the car, and lens blur the background, using photoshop of course.

    For shot #3 I did isolated the car. I basically mask the car and copy it and paste it on its own layer. Then copy the original layer and have that below the car layer.

    I then used one of the blur filter, until i got the desire effect. I am a car enthusiast and want to start taking photo of other folks car from the forum I am a part of.

    Thanks for all the C&C :)

    Since you are looking to take pics of cars i suggest you look into picking up a good Circular Polarizer, it will help with reflections.

    I check out your flickr and those car photo are nice. What kind of Circular Polarizer are good? I am still new to the filter stuff and I read the tutorial and still not sure what brand and filter be good.

    Also how would the circular polarizer help with reflections?
