  2. Some sweet pics but the car ruined them. I didn't notice the border at first, a contrasting color (black) overlapping the white would probably be nice.

    Of the pics in your post I like pics 1 and 2, minus the car.

    lose that car. If a friend has an old 60's 70's car that not restored it would look great.

    I think an older car would look better but no car at all wouldn't look bad at all.

    the pics are still too dark...use the headlights from the car to light up the building. the backlighting to me tends to shadow the building.

    #2 looks the best but Pontiac's always ruin photos...

    I did them with 8 second exposure, and to the left of the building there's a restaurant, and its outside lights were on, so that's why that side is brighter.

    Next series will not have my car in them, and I'll use a longer exposure.

    At the time, it was a good idea.


    Should I point the front of my car at the garage, and just use the park lights to illuminate it? In a 10-15 sec exposure, the lighting would be neat.

    No actually an old muscle car in any condition would suit those pics much better. As everyone else stated, the Sunfire hosed the pics.

    Got any in color, or just all B&W?

    now that I look at them on my home computer, they don't look so dark.

    None worthwhile. The B&W effect really surprised me so I took most like that.

    All underexposed and lacking contrast.
