    It is a little less sunny outside and I made a few adjustments I think this picture of my gf's car came out rather well.

    car is looking nice- only things I wouldve changed is more space underneath it and less above it..and no bush right there.

    and preferably no minivan :o

    I would also suggest to stop taking pictures of cars :o

    do different stuff - people, street, nature, everything...if you want to stick with cars get something different than semi 3/4 views- get in close, go front, go back, go from below, get up on a ladder infront of it...get creative.

    pay attention to my framing comment in my first post..

    something interesting you can do with cars is open up the engine hood (why did I want to say bonnet?) and get in close to some mechanical thingsies...put iit up on jack stands, take pics from below...get creative niukka

    :werd: try using a line as the subject of the picture- easiest to do if you use strange angles


    edit- and get closer so the car goes out of frame when using a line as the subject

    flower pic ftw. And a tighter crop on the dog. Get that wheel or whatever out of the picture. It does nothing for the picture, and takes away from the main focus. Not saying you need to have only one focus, but they need to compliment each other.

    And car pics are going to be hard with distracting backgrounds, and the lack of a polarizing filter

    As for the fish I did some by hand and some with tripod...

    I set it to P or macro depending.

    It's a Nikon D50 with the kit lens.
