    I'm sure you think it sucks, Toddster. :fawk:

    But thanks for the tips from last time... I think i'm improving.. shooting much faster (1/1250+) all the time really helps... Also use a CP this time, since i had to shoot midday.

    A little post work and it'll be aces ten. I like how there are massive chunks of dirt sitting in stasis.

    Not bad

    Check this out though

    Shoot tight and crop tighter.

    I don't like the blown highlights on the front fender, jersey, and back number plate.

    Good job though.

    Just don't go taking any of my jobs ;)

    I'd like to shoot moto. There's a track near me that's packed every tuesday. Do you think it'd be profitable?

    Thx dude.. yah, crop does look good..

    Both of my good friends that ride have blank white plastics.. pain in the ass to shoot and not blow out in bright day light...

    Next time I go out shooting I'm going to bring some sharper/faster glass.. probably a 70-200 f/2.8 VR..

    That shot is at 3200 ISO, by the way..

    Midday sun at 3200 ISO? You could probably bump that down...

    I know.

    The auto-ISO put it there.. It is usually pretty accurate on the D300 I have found.. Shutter speed was also pretty fast, 1/1250, and lowest i could drop the ap to was f/5.6.. probably what it was trying to compensate for..

    The 70-200 will definitely help. There's no fucking reason to use 3200. I rarely go over 400 when shooting in the day. Tell you friends to use plastic that isn't "bro" :mamoru:

    :ugh2:

    God Damn, you're a fucking tool.

    The picture could have been taken with just about any camera, but the person using it makes the shot.

    Hardly. You just make yourself look like someone who is ignorant and has no clue what they're talking about. Nice try though. :ugh:
