This is just an idea, but wouldn't it be a good idea to have a continuous thread so people can post a picture, instead of creating a new thread just for one photo, so people can comment and give feedback.
For example, I've just got back from a few test shots, and would love some feedback, but I feel a bit silly creating a new thread for one photo that will, I'm sure, soon become forgotten!

Here's the photo anyway. It's only a test shot, so I didn't spend too much time removing the rig. My main criticism is I think it's too blurred!



C+C is appreciated, and if the idea about this thread is considered stupid - then I apologize now lol! thumbs_up.gif

Looks nice. Only thing I really notice is that the edge along the back window looks over-sharpened and I might desaturate the grass a little bit. Other than that it's a beautiful image.

ok this might be out of topic , but since im new to the whole photography drill ... iv noticed most of you guys have these kind of rolling pictures , but you guys make them just so perfectly (knock on wood)

any-who im guessing you guys attach a car rig of some sort ? if so can you post a picture of how one looks like and where can i purchase it from ?


ps:i went to the local camera shop and asked the same question and all he has is some suction cup that can be attached to the window i guess

One of the most common ways is a pole attached to the car with suction mounts. The alternative is to mount underneath the car with magnets. Both have their advantages, and disadvantages.

C+C is welcome, I tried something a little different with the post processing.

nice one's Dr.Freeman! =) In the first I would maybe desaturate the green grass a bit tho, maybe just me but I like more desaturated colors! nd on the second the red on the backlights are a little to saturated.. so thats pretty much it from me, cant find anything else that I dont like, great pics!!

absolut, those pics have potential. The last one looks like its grainy though, is it digital or did you scan it? Also, the pole in the second one is kind of distracting. The first one is better, but still lacks. Try having a little more interesting background, the rusty fence just doesn't do it for me. Also, i think they would look better if the window was up, but thats just me.

My 2 cents.

The grain is from pp as I had to brighten it a little maybe I overdone it?

a more intresting bg huh?? well if I goto anymore locations its either too distracting or not 'intresting' enough... rolleyes.gif I was going for a simple look if you know what I mean? and yeah I forgot to put the window up... thumbs_down.gif Im going to have more time with this car soon anyway soon as my friend has new engine mounts smile.gif.Thanks for the feedback i'll take it onboard and try get the right balence between the two.The 2nd shot yeah the poll is a distraction i'd love to have a more versitile camera where I can make dof but you simply can't see it on screen unless you are doing macro the mf is useless or maybe im doing it wrong?? its a canon a75 btw

^^ That looks hot, am I correct in saying that that's the CS version?

This is from the same shoot as my previous pic, but I liked the sky in this pic. Opinions?

I like the sky but it looks desaturated and more boring compared to the other ones imo

Yes it's a 2004 CS version. A challenge stradale stripe will arrive this week (sticker), I am not sure if it looks best with or without a stripe.
