1, 3, 5 are done very nicely.

For 2, 4, 6, the issue I have is just with the amount of out-of-focus material

I would try to shoot 2 from the other direction, trying to get all of mazda in focus, and letting it blur on speed.

4, just too much out-of-focus stuff altogether.

6, I would like it more if the entire tach was in focus, 0-3000 seem to be a little fuzzy.

Thanks for the feedback. Dodger, the deal with the focus is that I was shooting at f/1.8 which fucses very narrow and it made the pictures kinda fuzzy.

If you look at #3, you can see the passangers front of the car is out of focus. Sucks i ****ed up a good shot, but now I know the spot and I can always redo them. I do apretiate the advice though, its nice because sometimes I dont see certain things like other people do, and it always helps to have a second opinion.

I agree about number 4...I'm no expert, but it looks a little too out of focus to be natural....nice in general though NY'er!

Bought it today along with 2 tiffen 67mm filters, hopefully it ships here in time for this sunday's Russian Mosaic Festival, and a new thread will follow.

New the lens is 600 plus shipping and the filters total to about 75 dollars plus shipping

I paid 500 for everything used and in mint condition.

Those Mazdas look good on a pretty woman, but I'm not sure they are really what a man should be seen in unless he's about 70 wearing a tartan cheesecutter and tweed jacket.

So my suggestion is to include a car slut in the frame

Small followup, finally got my pig of a lens (70-200 f/4 L) in and started shooting around. Still trying to work out the kinks with the CPL filter and reducing camera shake but here are a few I got so far.



This 2nd one was edited by a friend so I didnt put my name in, but the pic was taken by me.




I think the CPL I am using is giving the camera too much to think about resulting in a fuzzy focus (see last photo) and im still having troubles with camera shake (first photo) but I love this glass!

I kinda feel the same way. However I also think my Integra is a slut car, and it's my daily driver.
To get to the point, a scantily clad woman makes any picture of a car that much better.
#6 I like the angle of the shot but I think I'd rather see the speedo than the gas gauge.
Nice looking zoom zoom tho.

Not bad man. Not really one for Mazdas, even though the turbo Mazdaspeed editions are pretty sweet.



BTW: Look at the cute little intercooler!!! I just wanna pinch it! lol. Sry, small intercoolers just look weird to me..


Overall, nice car.
