most of these are straight from the camera, i might have done some minor editing on 1 or 2 tho
I enjoyed 1, 5, & 6.
1 & 6 would have been pro if not for cutting off the top of the fin in 6 and the terribad reflections in 1.
thx i'll keep that in mind next time. those 2 are a couple of the 1st shots i took when i got my new camera.
IMO the massive reflections in the car bodies of 1 & 6 are horrible for car images because the body lines get lost in the reflection.
If the goal of the shots was to highlight the reflections, that's another matter.
A circular polarizing filter on the lens is used to help control big reflections like those, if your main subject is the car.
thanks I looked at a few polarizing filters today, what's the difference I looked at a hoya that was 80 and one that was 110 would I be better off getting the one for 110 it said professional series but I dont know what the difference was between that and the 1st one i saw.
You want the ones that are MC (multi-coated) or SMC. The coatings help minimise flare and transmit light.
The last one, I really like.
The first one is good too. But I think cropping off the front of the car was a mistake.
I agree with KMH. I can barely see the flame design going down the side of the car in 1. I think with the reflection gone that would be good.
#3 looks like some of the background is blown out/overexposed.
#5 needs to be leveled ( atleast in my opinion )
Overall pretty good though. Good job.
I would edit out the power lines in #2 and level # 5. #1 is a good shot if you want the reflections, if not follow already said advice.
thx for the advice guys its greatly appreciated.
