  5. Re: Using advice from last time, have the shots improved?

    I'm using DPP, I will play with them a bit and see what I can do.
  6. Re: Using advice from last time, have the shots improved?

    I candefinitelysee the need for some post, but to be honest I don't even know where to start. The most I've done is some cropping & exposure adjustment. Anybody know where some decent tutorials...
  7. Re: Using advice from last time, have the shots improved?

    One of the guys actually asked me to go catch that Porsche lifting its front wheel like that, the AutoX guys love that stuff :D I do wish I could have gotten to the other side of the runway to shoot...

    Canon just made me very happy!

    So back in January my just out of warranty Rebel XS broke while I was out of town. Since I needed a camera for the trip I bought a T1i & planned to have the XS fixed so I could sell it. I finally...
  12. Re: How could I make these better in the future?

    I actually have a polarizer for my other shorter lens, I didn't even think to get it out of the car (again, I blame the heat). I think I will probably get an ND for the 70-200 and and see which one...
  13. Re: How could I make these better in the future?

    I do like that crop does make quite a difference. That picture was taken at 122mm, I was shooting them a little loose as they come rapid fire I didn't really have time between cars to review them to...
  14. Re: How could I make these better in the future?

    Sounds good, I'm off to research filters. Appreciate the help.
  15. Re: How could I make these better in the future?

    mmm I didn't I didn't even think about the fact that such a high aperture would cause that issue, even though I should have since I've read in on this site a million times. How much would an ND...
  16. How could I make these better in the future?

    I shot an SCCA Autocross event that my brother was in this weekend and the shots came out marginal at best. Looking for tips on what you think I could try next time to make em look a little better....

    Re: 2009 Jacksonville Sea and Sky Spectacular

    Thanks Jamie, were you using a polarizer on your shots? The sky seemed to come out a little bland in mine, though I'm sure a little pp would help. I say up behind the beach one day just to the right...

    Re: 2009 Jacksonville Sea and Sky Spectacular

    Here are a couple of mine, I was using the EF 70-200 f/4 non-is which made it incredibly difficult to get the prop blur. Most of them were just blur. They should be clickable to the full res version....
