    10 and 13 are ok, the rest need more light, they are all dark and look like they were taken with p+s's

    the first one is the only one w/ any kind of potential... the rest, well, they're not so good. Mostly underexposed and snapshot-ish. :dunno:

    lower the shutter speed to let light in for longer. Or use a flash off camera. long exposures probably will not make any of these pictures more interesting or better

    Most of them are OOF and either your lens is dirty or your sensor.

    First one's cool. Crop out the stuff at the bottom though. The rest are underexposed and have a lot of shadows landing on them.

    I just think w/ the shots you're trying to take, you need a little more than slower shutter speeds. You're going to need some off camera lighting.

    most are underexposed. it's obvious you don't have any flashes or lights, so try to find parking garages with some good lighting and redo

    :rofl: by strobe they mean flash, not an actual strobe light like unce unce unce unce fadddeeee....

    Anyways it would of been a little helpful if you posted pics with the exif data, so we know what settings you were shooting at.

    btw I LOVE s13 non-hatch

    Depends on the program you are using to resize/pp with. Its usually in the options when you save.
