I like how it looks as if the car is sort of popping off the picture.

Glad you pointed that out. I guess I didnt notice that while I was taking and editing it. But now you point it out it really does

Yes I saw the title. I was joking around. Maybe it came out wrong. I wouldn't call a spun out car wreckage though. Still a good picture none the less.

well, a few things to help you out.

Good lighting (flash etc), lower ISO, and tripod will make your photos appear sharper. You can also use clarity/sharpening in post process, but be careful, you can over sharpen. When the photo starts to look different than the original photo, then you've probably used too much sharpening. Your camera is plenty good for producing sharp images. If you want REALLY sharp photos, it all comes down to lenses. I'm sure you've heard that old "invest in lenses before bodies" well, if everyone is saying it, it must be true! I know lenses can get expensive.... If you want to start experiencing better photos right off the bat, check out
thisthis
lens. About 200 new, but i got mine for like $140 used (back when i shot DX, i have since moved to FX). And it was awesome. Long story short, lenses make all the difference!

How do you guys do the picture stacking? When you take multiple exposures of the same picture but you change the CP filter a little and then combine it into one image? I did that but wasnt sure the best way to layer the images

Another helpful hint, that I recently started doing, is to use manual focus. This ensures proper focus on your subject and you don't have to worry about getting home and seeing that your best shot is out of focus slightly (which has happened to me a few times using Quick AF).

I use the "live view" mode on my camera and zoom/enlarge my subject on the lcd monitor to see if it really is in focus.

You can PM me if you want some more help. I'm still a newbie, but I can give you some tips and pointers and try to help you improve your shots.

If you have a good tripod they should all line up. If not, then Photoshop can do it with "Align Layers". It can take quite a while if you have a lot of images though.

Change the blending mode for all the layers to darken.

Color's way off and it's a weird angle/framing.

Sepia. Don't care about framing for parking lot shots.

Try again.
