Congratulations on making your first post!

Nice car and great countryside!!

One thing you always want to do before printing or putting something on the web is to apply some unsharp mask. You will find that unlike a point and shoot all dSLRs are 'soft' so this needs to be done as the final stage of the editing process.

This is the sort of difference you are looking at after sharpening.

Looking forward to seeing more.

its a nice sharp shot

i would suggest maybe playing with mid tone contrast to try to deep the shot a bit and if you have one, possibly a polarizer filter would have deepened your sky in a bit more so it doesnt look over exposed.

keep posting and welcome

hi

i stumbled across this thread on shooting cars. http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=78

it is good advice to get nice and low to exaggerate the bumpers and grills. also a 45 degree angle presents cars well.

like your shot after sharpening - could lose a bit of the dead space.
