Default Cars.

I realized that the only pictures I've shown were threadjacking someone else's posts. So I started this little one so my bad images were away from theirs.

A little car show down the road from me on Sunday. I know nothing about cars, but I thought it was a good opportunity to try a CPL that I had from my old camera (same size as the Panasonic 14mm thread). I read somewhere that it would help to cut down glare on shiny automobiles, so I thought I'd try. I see a few places where there is lens flare, but to be honest it doesn't really bother me. Also, a few shots show a reflection of some idiot taking pictures of cars, haha. I didn't see that in the LCD of course but I should have guessed with all of that buffed up chrome.













Any help or suggestions or hate of course is welcomed and expected.

Great shots. I think that last pic is a tad overexposed.

Thanks.

I think you're right (looking at it "the morning after" anyhow). Still getting used to what is "good" exposure. Also I'm wondering if my monitor at home isn't a little off compared to the one here at work.

Those light sensors can be a little tricky. Spot metering may have helped here. Appears like your sensor averaged the entire scene. Next time I shoot something I'm serious about I will do a...........brain dead today, can't remember what it's called but the feature where you shoot three pics with one stop under, even, and one over.....ah bracketing. I don't know if you can do the same thing in RAW or not. Haven't gotten that far with that intimidating PSE10.

Yeah, I think I had it either center weighted or averaging the scene (can't remember what that's called).
