    honestly they look really good. i thought i was amateur, guess im below that haha some are kind of dark, but the quality and scenery is good. seems that almost all of them you are shooting towards the light. would be a bit easier to get brighter pics if you shot with the sun to your back.

    Ive taken many photo`s with the sun behind me. i can post some of them also

    I got a EOS 6D with a 50mm F1.4 sigma art. I also use Lightroom and PS. but I haven't used the programs for long so there are still a ton of cool things i can do to my photo`s.

    looks like you're off to a good start.
    constructive criticism time... most of the photos are underexposed. try spot metering or learn to use levels in photoshop as well as curves.

    well i actually made them underexposed this time because i like them like this. but i will take notice and do it better next time! thanks

    i`ve been working on taking two and three photos both over and under exposed to get higher details in photos. so i can highlight the foreground and also the background.

    Photos look really good man, I'm trying to step my photography game up too, but I'm not at your level that's for sure haha. I like the low contrast feel, but I struggle with how much it takes away from the color. Any idea what wheels are on the e36 in the first few pics?

    looking good! what are you using for post processing? Lightroom has some awesome features when it comes to adjusting shadow, contrast, etc. I "borrowed" my favorite shot of yours and tweaked a few things in LR.

    Testing by BlueJay Media, on Flickr

    Here are the settings I used, but its all art and personal preference so obviously you can do what you like. The nice thing is if you screw it up too badly you can always revert to your original.

    you can do even more post processing with PS and even light room, but its an easy start. these adjustments took about ~2 minutes to complete. if you dive into more work it'll take a lot longer, but that just depends on what you want as a finished product.

    Also make sure you're doing the basics, shooting in manual mode, bracketing, shooting in RAW, etc.

    I shoot in raw. and i use both PS and Lightroom. I took all these photos and made them a bit darker just cause i liked it. I got some more photos coming.

    I'm aware with all the features of LR. its PS that I'm still a good newbie in

    good deal! and PS is a beast of a program, I've been using it for years and still consider myself a newb as well. There are some that can just create magic with it, I'm not one of those guys haha.

    I like them! I just think the highlights may have been turned down a bit too much on the e36 m3.

    BTW... how the hell did that e36 get those wheels in 5x120 bolt pattern...? I want them super bad.
