Nice Picture Crazybiker!
Just try a tighter crop.
The pole in front does not look nice.
If possible crop away some portion from the back also.

EDIT : This is a quick job I did and cropped out the front and back!

Praful, Amazing editing there!
Preserved every detail, yet so subtle!
What a picture!
This is going on my desktop!

2 From my side, I found these buses lined up outside my college. Looked nice, so I clicked a couple of shots!

@preetam: I liked crazybiker's picture better. The crop you made somehow lacks something, can't seem to put my finger on it though. The second picture you posted, of the buses, is very nice. The composition is perfect with the trees lining up perfectly.

@Shamik : Thank you. There were actually as many more number of buses as in the picture. To capture 'em all I'd have to walk half a kilometre and would still not be sure if all of them would fit in the frame! So spared myself all that extra trouble

About the crop :
Each to his own I guess.
I thought that crazybiker's shot lacked focus, so did a quickie job.

@Aiel : That is a nice shot buddy!

Actually shamik is right. Your crop took away all the compositional aspect from the shot, leaving just the car. Whenever you shoot an animal or a vehicle, it is important to give breath space in the front. Also, you need to give a context through the background. Often, the oomph factor is provided by the contrast you achieve between the background and the main object.

Think of any car brochure, how often do they not have any background?

Consider the following crop, it removes the pole, but improves the composition by retaining background and moving the car off-center.

Default HDRs

Here's what HDRs can do!
Many people don't like this effect, quite a few like it too. I just look at it more like a picture/image than a photograph. But it gives you quite interesting details and I enjoy taking HDRs now and then.

The upper image is the normal image - note the correctly exposed car, but overexposed sky and underexposed tree shadows
The lower one is the HDR - HDRs generally look good only in low res, as there is quite a bit of noise

Thank you Samurai-san, You almost read my mind there. That's exactly what I was trying to say but somehow couldn't.

That's a strange event, what really happens in this event?

Roadkill - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Samurai, I know what Road kill means. But it was a event ran by a college(Paacet) so it is their call to name their event. It is basically a Stunt Performance shows where many reputed teams like Ghostryderz aka Grz(Host team of MTV Stuntmania), RyderZ(this bhpian's team) and Team DNA Rods performed. It was awesome experiance seeing all these biggies in action.
