Yeah those usually are pretty good to start with (Nikon also has them), but just about all manufacturers struggle with white balance with artificial light, such as when indoors or street lamps. Shooting in the shade often throws things off too.

Thanks, next time I'm out, I will speed it up some? Does it make it that much easier? Will you get them same effect?

As far as centering the car in a photo, it really all depends on what's surrounding the car. If stuff around the car starts to offer a way of framing (say a row of trees arching over the car or a view through window frame), then it makes sense to center the car in that. However, if it's just wide open space with nothing that enhances the photo, I'd definitely not center anything.
Thanks! How is the composition on this one?

It's MUCH easier to get consistent, sharp shots at higher shutter speeds, but the effect isn't quite as nice. Here are a couple examples so you can compare:

1/125 sec:



1/30 sec:

Composition is fantastic! If I were to nitpick, I'd completely clone out that tree right above the car (that also covers part of the top road) and I don't like how your far right exhaust tip isn't very visible.

Ok I can see the difference now!


Oh wow, you are really gonna be hard on me now I did try to dodge it some, but it was to far in the shadow, and dirty. The outside driver side looked the same before processing. And now that you say it I see what you mean about the tree. This pic made explore today! #328

Hey guys, haven't had a chance to get out and shoot lately so I shot this from the door way of the house, I know it's raining and it's not ideal but let me know what you think.

^^^ I'm a fan of them. Keep them coming. My favorite moto shots I got were often kids coming out of berms throwing some dirt up, from a head on angle. Just an idea

Semi on/off topic. Has anyone heard anything about when retailers will actually have the Canon 5D Mark III's back in stock? I know there was the light leak issue, updated firmware and inventory...but I haven't heard or seen anything online in awhile.

Armin, thank you for your input and tips!

I'd start by finding much less distracting backgrounds. I think they detract from every shot posted. The exposure on the panning shot looks OK, but there's far too little in focus for me to consider that a keeper.

I don't like the centered orientation...you've got some road behind the car that could work nicely for your overall composition. The B&W edit isn't bad, but it really makes your lack of a polarizer all the more apparent.

Nice shot. The sun makes the lighting a little harsh...I would probably expose it a little bit more but obviously not too much.

I very much agree. There's a lot of distractions and you've got some blown out skies too. I do like the leading lines of the second shot, but there's still a ton of distractions. I also feel that the panning shot is just a little too out of focus.

I'm not a fan of the location in the first shot...it makes the whole scene feel really tight and the mixed lighting is a little distracting.

I like the idea of the second shot, but the Reno lights are so bright that it totally overpowers the car, making the car more of an afterthought. If the car had more exposure on it (through post processing or artificial lighting), it would be a whole lot more complete. It also looks like the photo as a whole isn't level.

The last shot has some really harsh sunlight on the car and I don't like how the car is positioned to be exiting the frame. There's also a really nasty reflection on the side of the car as well. The background and location looks like it can work pretty well, but you just have a few details to work out.
