How many photos were taken with it? I'm guessing three.

Forgot all about those, I gotta see if I still have some of my Hawaii pano's I did awhile back. You can get some cool stuff though, like your car in it several times or something.

edit: hey I found em! I hate people moving around though.... that was with my little kodak point n shoot. Good times.



Holy crap, I know all three of these places!

1)Byodo-in Temple in Kaneohe

2)Pali Lookout

3)Hanauma Bay


Damn, now I'm all homesick and shit...

A few HDR shots. Didn't turn out too well.

I like your first and last shots here.

The rest seem either over processed or underexposed.

Clean ride though.

What I changed in PhotoShop is over processed? I'm still a noob at it so that's probably why lol. Underexposed is too dark right? Here's the original (1st) and the PhotoShop (2nd).





IMO the 2nd one looks better.

Better than the original, but still pretty underexposed in some areas. I'm a little confused as to what the subject of the photo is: the car or the graffiti? If the subject is the graffiti, then your dome light probably shouldn't be on :P. It looks like you could've used a flash on the car and possibly a graduated neutral density filter to keep the bottom half of the photo a little darker than the top.

True I see the underexposure now. I was mainly trying to keep the car as the main subject, but my friend suggested that I leave the lights on to kinda show the graffiti. I should probably tried it with no lights...but there's always next time . I was thinking of using a flash but thought there would be an annoying reflection on the car and wouldn't have lit up the background enough. Filters....umm yeahh I'm not that advanced yet lol but I'll keep that in mind

Considering some of the shots I take, I think I'm gonna have to look into one of those graduated ND filters. Might improve My sunsets. Thanks for that little tip!

With any kind of graffiti, HDR can really make the colors pop.

IDK how long your exposure time was, but I'd have made the exposure time as long as possible (lowest ISO, highest f#, etc) and then put it on a 2 second timer and then while the shutter is open, run around the car with your flash popping it off in key areas. As long as you don't stand in one place too long you won't show up in the final picture.

Here are some of my graffiti shots from a while back.
