    Alright so maybe I just like being harrassed( I am trying)..I know this photo is not outside as suggested (its always dark by the time I get home..:( ) but I was trying to make the front in focus and the rear out of focus..I am using a 28-90mm f/3.5-5.6. I cannot seem to make the appearance the way i want it. Any ideas?? Basically I was looking to get the front as the focal point and blur the rest out..

    get as close as you can still focus at, drop to your fastest F-stop possible and voila.

    You're limited because of your lens.

    If you want more of the background blurred, create more distance from the focal point and the background. Another way to blur out the background is to shoot at a larger aperture; with the kit lens, it's 5.6 @ 55 mm which won't blur out much unless there's several hundred feet from the focal point and the BG. You're limited by your gear to get the results you want.

    There is a bit of camera shake in the photos. Because of the slow shutter speed, you might want to use the 10 second timer option to eliminate the camera shake when you press the shutter release.

    As far as the photos, they aren't anything special.

    much better. the trick to shots like this is to pick something you want people eyes to be drawn to and make sure it is as sharp as possible (for example the grille / badge in this shot). You can either manual focus, or compose your shot so that one of your AF points is directly over it.

    Also keep an eye on general composition, car filling the frame, facing a good direction, level. etc etc.
