If you could edit your post and number your shots, would be a lot easier to comment on them.

i think #4 has the best exposure, all the shots r great tho. only suggestin is try 2 keep from having other cars in your rolling shots. let them pass if u have 2


why r your tail lights mis matched? u should get a blue hood and vinyl the roof blue, it'd b a cool theme, your car is hot

mis-matched? I got rear ended and the car is slowly but surely getting put back together hahaha.

I think most of them are slightly out of focus because the cars weren't going the exact same speed all the time. I'm learning though.

Thank you for the tips/compliments everyone

Number 1 is good. Number 2 though, serious lens flare plus you're photographing the shadow-side of the car? Trash can the shot. I like 3 but it is a bit fuzzy, a bit blurry. Number 4, again for the trash can. Car is too far away, and never let us see the camera-car (we can see the side view mirror). Number 5 is again a bit blurry but the composition is good. Number 6 those other two cars detract and add nothing to the image. Number 8, we can see the camera-car again.

1/20 second shutter? Don't make life that hard on you. Double that shutter and you'll still get motion blur but will be easier to get a crisp shot. Also consider shooting much more profile than you are doing and less head-on. The more profile the shot the easier it is to be that blur you're looking for.

#2 & 4 are pretty good, all the others are a little blurry. You're getting there though!

No problem. Another good thing about shooting more of the profile, aside from getting background blur more easily, is that we'll see more of the wheels and the blur within the wheels. That's always nice, especially if the car has nice brake calipers.

Another thing to consider is if the car is closer to you and you shoot at wider focal lengths then that helps with the slower shutter speeds. Its easier to shoot at 15mm at 1/40 of a second in a moving car than to shoot at 70mm at 1/40 of a second in a moving car.

Car to car is fun! Often I like it better than rig shots (and much easier to post-process too!) But Texas has changed their seat belt laws so that even back-seat passengers need to be in a seat belt. Try hanging out a window with a camera while buckled in.

I'm sure he meant that you can down load a trial version. I think someone on here just recently did that. Then when CS5 comes out you can down load a trial version of that to get some extended use. A good 2 months of free PS. That should give you some time to figure out how to get it with out paying for it.
