    1 & 2 should have found their way to your recycle bin, not the web.

    3 I see you, and not really in a good way. Truck in the background is ugly/boring/wtf and WTFfeet?

    4 Easily the best of the bunch, good job

    5 I think you're trying to emphasize the turbo, but why is it so poorly framed? (i.e. bottom of inlet cut off) and too much DOF, so the rest of the shot is distracting such as the windshield and wipers.


    Overall 4/10

    If you are asking about the reflection, choose one or a combination of:

    1. Telephoto lens
    2. Shoot from positions that are outside the area reflected in chrome
    3. Shoot later during the day with the sun behind you
    4. Photoshop

    Yeah the reflection is what I meant, sorry. But yeah, I take a lot of car show pictures (and I'm getting bored with them) and that's always been a problem. You don't always have the luxury of coming back later because of the show schedule, or the owner leaves, etc.

    So I was just wondering how to make the best of a bad lighting situation like that. Thanks for the tips!
