please give me some tips on this photo.
The sky is not washed out. it was a very cloudy day in WA. like every damn day...

But it's a tad blown out. What type of camera are you using?
The car is too much to the right of the photo and isn't the first thing my eye is drawn too. There is no definitive subject here.

im using a 300D as i didnt want to spend tons of money on a camera. hahaha only 190$ woot!
anyways now that i look at it again i notice i look at the orange towers first... im going to put a different pic in here that i think is better.

Ah, the aroma of Tacoma. I miss WA, but I don't miss the clouds or rain.
Anyway, I think there's too much pavement in the photo. You should use the rule of thirds and have the horizon in the bottom third of the photo.
Something like this...
Also, it seems like the Focus is out of focus. Of course this is just my opinion and I'm still a n00b myself.

your right it is out of focus. look at the plate.

This second photo you posted is better ... but the bit of cut off on the bumper makes me think the photo is unfinished. Rule there is, if you are going to cut something off, cut a bigger chunk of it not a small part ... or it feels incomplete.
If you can photoshop, I would take out that piece of paper on the ground. But yes better.
I recommend you look into a circular Polarizer for days like this so that the sky isn't so blown out.

i actually have a polarizer i just didnt know i could use it for that. still expierimenting...

Yeah, the polarizers can help tone done bright, overcast shots. That what I use when ever I am outside and shooting with bright light from the sun or bounce of the sun from the clouds.

ok sweet. once we get rid of this liquid sun ill take some more outside shots.

#1 -- Too much sky, too little car. Sky is blown out as well
#2 -- Ray said it. If you're gonna chop something chop it like you mean it!

Put that polarizer on too and turn it around until you see what it does. That's how I don't have any glare from the windows in that photo I linked to!

what type of lowering parts are on this?
04-01-2011, 03:11 PM
i am no photographer, but i like the second picture much more. the car is the main subject but there is still other stuff in the background. In the first picture, i looked at the towers more then your car.
