    is that a hood scoop? nice, must be fast, right?

    I like the 2nd because of the nice bokeh on the background.

    spiffybeth ... ok, at least you tell me why you don't like them ;)

    actually, I was trying to get some more extreme angles (less natural ones), but the first one was the best I could get in 10 minutes since the scene was extremely crowded with people. then I gave up.

    Sw1tchFX ... I think it is a hood scoop. It is not my car ;)

    about the bokeh, I was not sure if it was maybe a bit too subtle and I should have gone to a shallower DOF.

    Anyway, these were taken at a midsummer celebration in northern Sweden.

    the bokeh works because the edges of the car are still sharp. The background would have been distracting.

    I quite like these shots. In the first one, I like the diagonal angle at which you took the shot, and the low pov. And in the second shot, I like the dof with the boathouse and rocks in the background - it makes it look like a shot one might see in a magazine.

    ^^^ I agree with Anty, it definitely looks like something from a magazine. The only thing I'm not really liking about the 2nd is the small shadow at the bottom right.

    Thansk both :)

    Thought of cloning that shadow out.. this is cast by one of the crowd. my other images are even worse ;)

    Cloned out a lamp post on the first one by the way, and some people :p

    Everyone knows a hood scoop shaves 2 seconds off your 0-60 time and adds 10 horsepower. :lol:
