I shot at a relatively high aperture focused on my headlight to attempt to get the GMC OOF, should have raised the aperture more I guess... There's always next time.

Or either move yourself closer or moved the Mazda.

That's why I like Primes. They teach you how to move and get the composition.

Now this series is good. I like the focus of the GMC ride.

The photos look like a story board for a commercial.

Nice.

Just need to watch your levels and how the shadows and highlights affect colors. Looks like the shadows were lightened a little too much because the sonic blue looks a little to soft in relation to all the greens bright color.

Yea it does. I really like using photoshop shadow and highlight adjustment function. Can really make an "HDRish" image by using that function. Take my the two pictures of my dog here. First as it was when it came off the camera. Second using only shadows and highlights function. World of difference for not only bringing in the grays in his coat, but also the browns. I just really like the effect of the second one. But should darken it up a little bit lol.
