    Well I drove around yesterday for a few hours just taking pictures, here are some of my favorites. Some are HDR, I will put HDR before the image so you know. Some of the day shots I would have liked to not use HDR but it was a really hazy day and the skys came out nearly white even with a polarized lens.

    Are you practicing with HDR?

    I like the last one the most because its random, well they all are actually, but it's the least edited and I like the DoF.

    I like the fact that you haven't gone to mad with the HDR - I'm no fan of the cartoon effect it sometimes produces.

    I do like your first photo - I love contrast like that.

    Keep up the good work

    I'm also a big fan of the first car shot. Normally I don't like car pictures very much, but the colours in this one really make it a nice photo. I would remove the streetlamp though, just to clean it up a bit.

    thanks for the comments guys.

    I guess you could say im practicing with HDR, I used it a few times before.

    I only use normally when there are alot of dark spots and really light spots, that way I can capture the detail in both of them. Im not really that big a fan of those over the top HDR pictures, if I can I try to capture the picture as close to what it looked like when I was taking it.

    Do you mean try editing it out with photoshop or just cropping it out

    I think he means just removing it with photoshop.
