    I like the last two. The first two shots have shadows in weird places, and its just a whole lot of distraction, IMO.

    Good angles and focal length - gives it a nice look.

    I do like the perspective in the first 2 and you're almost there I'd say. It's just that the front part of the car is covered in darkness. If you can bounce of some light with a big white surface or creating an HDR I think you can get a killer image.

    Try shooting the first scene with the same aperture like the last one (f13 instead f4.5) then you will get that nice effect on the street lights ;)

    Keep going, wanna see more!

    yeah, the first 3 was when i first got into photography (and not using a point and shoot). So, i still was learning on how to use what ambiant light was around

    If i get the chance, i'll try that same shot again, and maybe try both a HDR first, then trying it with the different f/stop and seeing if i can get some light on the front of it

    thanks! can you belive i catch crap from other honda guys for owning it. :lmao:

    but, i do appriciate the nice comments. The first 3 were from when i first started out in photography, the last one was done in Jan or Feb, i can't remember. I think i've been hitting a rut though in car photography, cause i've noticed i've been doing the same angles and same things with other cars, and i hope to get out of that rut by seeing some of the skills of the other photographers here, and getting tips as well.

    sorry bout that, i'll just use the "large" link next time, instead of the orignal size one.

    i like do car photogprahy, but, it usually ends up being at car shows, and never just single car photoshoots really. and yeah, i've been looking at his pics, and they are awesome! Just wish i could figure out how he gets the majority of his shots to look like that

    Yes please, 8.5 MB of photos is ridiculous - you may want to edit the original post with the smaller photos.

    You seem to have a lot of noise in #3, I can't see the EXIF because I'm at work, but you have to watch that ISO. The 50d is probably a lot better though.

    ISO 200? I guess that's why no-one buys pentax cameras then...

    :scratch:

    That's from a *istDL ... from 2005. You can't really compare that camera (2005 CCD 6mp sensor) to today's K-x (12mp CMOS) & K-7(14mp CMOS), it's apples to oranges.
