Thanks... I need a new lense... something in the 1.8 range...I would much rather have the background blurred/wheel spin in most of the shots. I edited the sepia one again, and shifted the black point down a bit so that it was more about the car..

Thanks for the tips I'll be sure to apply them when I go out shooting tomorrow.

Here are a few I took at the local Autocross

Not bad, however there's a few things that pop out at me. First off, they're very contrasty...if that's the look you're going for, then all is good, but if it's not, you might want to turn down the contrast so that we can get more shadow and highlight detail Second, I would probably suggest a slower shutter speed since all the moving shots just have the wheels completely stopped, so there's no sense of motion happening. Finally, be careful about where you're cutting off parts of the cars

I like the first one the best out of the three. I probably would've positioned it to see more of the side of the car, but where you decided to cut off the car works very well. The second photo is very underexposed since the car is in the shadow and you have the backlight. The composition is very center-weighted and I don't like the powerlines in the background. The third photo makes the car look like an afterthought, and makes me feel like the viewer should be concentrating more on the scenery than on the car. I'd definitely move the car or frame it in more of a way so that the car was actually more of the subject of the photo.

I agree, that's a pretty badass shot. I love how the heat from the engines is distorting the air behind it I'm actually pretty big into military aircraft too...you can thank watching Top Gun in the theater when I was 6 years old for that

These are all pretty good Each composition is pretty much spot-on, except maybe the wheels on the Mustang in the last photo. Normally, I wouldn't like the extreme angle and bright light in the second night photo, but I think it works in this case to give it almost an epic feel. The only thing I'd probably say is that for the daytime shots, they're all a little bit underexposed, but otherwise I think you're in good shape.

Armin-

Just got my new D90 and took some shots of my friends bikes. I still have not uploaded the group shots and I still have 2 other bikes not shown in the thread. Let me know what you think.

Pretty good, Tim. The lighting is very even and the exposures are good, but as I say with all strobe shots, they all just kinda end up looking the same. So I guess they're good but at the same time don't really stand out, but that's just how I personally feel about strobe shots, especially in parking garages.

Sounds good I think...I was hoping you would talk more about the angles that I shot and if I presented the bikes with a aggressive "stance". Thanks for the advise though.

Well, that's just it...with a bike, there's only so much you can do with composition since it'll only lean one way on the kickstand, and the wheels will only turn in one direction. Combine that with strobes and just how every parking garage pretty much looks the same, and the options are just simply limited. Your angles are probably the best you can use...the only other thing I would maybe suggest is to get extremely low to the ground.

Definately some awesome photography tips, and not just for vehicles either. The rule of thirds almost always makes a photo more interesting.

Good stuff. I really don't have any major critiques...just watch out for getting the subject too close to the edge of the frame, and I'd probably want to see more action shots
