Just had to try out a new lens, they're not great










was trying for an effect in PS with this one





again, I know they're not great, but the lens has potential and when I have time and good light, we'll see what I can do

This can be good and bad. It's good if you want to point something out. It can be detrimental in that when you increase the intensity of a background color it has the effect of flattening the image (because only objects close to the viewer should have such a bright color to them). But the image still looks interesting... but slightly flattened compared to the one that isn't manipulated.

This image appears to have been taken with a telephoto (larger than 100mm in 35mm-comparison)... but I'm not an expert so I could simply be nutz:p The background looks to be crowding the foreground. Once again that can be bad or good. Just depends on what you’re wanting.

they were all taken with a 50mm f/1.8 prime lens, i think i may have left it at f/1.8 for the entire set so that's why only 1/2 the car is in focus for the most part

it's hard to tell in the little viewfinder how they'll look on the screen for me

These are great photos. Your tint-job is really showing its excellence too. I really like the one above. I think that you could use PS and put the tires in motion. Caption it..."No road is closed to a CALIBER!"

ib2loud: the 50mm lens is great... although it really starts to come into its own at f/2.8 or so... just don't drop the lens ;) I lost my first 50mm prime that way! Unfortunately, the build quality of the 50/1.8 is lackluster so once you drop it, you can kiss it good by.
