    put some rubber around that and you got yourself a sick photo.

    edit : try and clean up the background, the quality looks great but the background should be a shop or something, a street maybe?

    werd clean up the background. and also, there is a spot where you have a gap between the bottom of the rim, and the table (what ever its on) and the background is coming through there. its should be solid black.

    Here are many of the things that you gotta think about next time

    [​IMG]


    try using a peice of white poster board te reflect the light back to the opposite side of the rim to take away te shadows that i circled (that are on the rim).

    Use a white poster board, on the opposite side of the incoming light source, and behind the camera

    dude... whatever...

    back to the thread:

    i think the photo is good however i agree with rudeludenotmeanthough, that you should try using a white poster board to reflect more ambient light onto you subject. other than that a very fine pic, you should just think about your background a little more.

    try adjusting your aperture by the law of 3rds so that the background is out of focus, and yeah, put it on something, that table through the gap in the rims must go.

    try somthing around 2.8 or so for your aperture

    try using F2.. it will throw the backgoround out of focus, and allow the subject to be more noticable in the pic. all the other flaws wont stand out as much.

    i like those shadows on the rim, if you change the background then you wont have those shadows back there, but the shadows on the wheel give it good look IMO. it still needs rubber badly.
