Thanks! I did notice I was off center after but I didn't feel like going outside to re do it. Here are a few more, just playing around

I know there is a sign growing out the back but my eye doesn't go right too it so I didn't bother cloning it out.

Not a Subaru, but this does belong to a Subaru owner in the NESIC region (Hershey):

So if you guys remember I asked for some advice on what camera to get to get into car photography/Videography. I finally narrowed down do the last few choices. Nikon D3100, D5100, or the Canon T3i? I'm really leaning toward the D5100 as it seems like it has the most bang for the bucks.

How do your hands feel on it remember you will be using it for many hours if it doesn't feel right on your hands than you will never fully enjoy it

I think it would be which one will produces better results for what I want to use them for. They both feel about the same for me. From all the reviews I'm reading it seems like the D5100 would be a greater camera for video as it has a better autofocus system and it is quite a bit cheaper than the T3i. Any though?

From my knowledge about the D5100, but not much with the T31 tbh, i would have to recommend the D5100. In addition to the great specs on paper, it's solid feeling, and has good weight. I have generally always liked the nikon products compared to canon as far as feel/ergonomics/solid feeling body feel

I am leaning toward the D5100 too as from all the reviews I've been reading the D5100 seems to offer more to the beginner community. It's also cheaper than the T3i.

Also keep in mind that Nikon lens' tend to be more expensive than Canon. I don't know if that's a factor for you.

I own the D5100 and love it, it's an awesome camera. I've never used the T3i though so I can't really say which one would be better. It has a lot of pretty cool built in feature and takes some really good photos if you know what you're doing with it.

Thanks for the input everyone. I think I'll go with the D5100.

Yeah I did hear Nikon lens were more expensive than Canon. But I won't be going professional or too crazy with this hobby. I should be good with the 18-55mm kit lens that comes with the camera for awhile. I'll probably get another 2-3 decent/good lens later for different application.

i wish the frame was a bit more square. seems like the angle is just off here, especially if you look at the road in the background? or is this just me.

i have the d5000, it was my first slr and i'm still learning and its been years. i love it. nikon glass is pricey but you can find great deals on used glass, and also tamron and sigma aren't that bad of alternatives. you'll be thrilled with the 5100.

i'm actually trying to sell my 5k and upgrade to the D7000 or maybe the new 7100.

I actually just sold my D5000 and bought a D7000. It'll take awhile to get use to it, but I'm loving it so far. Thought about D7100, but didn't really need the 24mp and the extra cost.

Got some unexpected snow during the shoot, so I went in a little different direction with these. I tend to shy away from the cooler tones but I think it worked well with these.

Are a lot of you guys using reflectors for outside shoots? And is one usually enough or would you recommend having a couple?

So do you just deal with the shadows or use post processing to lessen/get rid of them? I just felt like having a reflector or two would save me time in photoshop by getting rid of a lot of the darker spots of the car.

Very nice. You've done will with the exposure on the snow, but the last one is getting close to the point where there's a little too much recovery, since the snow (and even the car) is starting to turn a little grey.

Pretty damn awesome! The only thing that bugs me is that the top left of the frame is significantly darker than the rest. That might just be because of clouds or the position of the sun, but I think if you were able to balance that out a little better, it would make the photo more complete.

I love all the leading lines, and the tire marks on the last shot. A polarizer would really make that black pop though, and I would've done my best to avoid or remove the trees and power lines.
