After reading some of Rudra's tips on the earlier pages, tried doing this. Took this picture at a local supercar meet. Reflections on the car, people around it, lamp posts have been removed.

My personal views below.
I will try and mention in the order of MOST eyecatching to least...
1. The buildings in the left on the horizon really stuck out to me before anything else for some reason.
2. The sky is entirely blown - (yes, same with the pic i preferred, but that isnt a big white rectangle taking up almost half the frame).
3. The pose the jeep is in is akward (i guess thats why i called the photo "akward"). The ground looks pretty flat in the image, yet the left-rear wheel is way up there. The car looks like its about to roll over away from the viewer even though its on flat ground. It looks like you caught the jeep at an akward moment where it was just about to fall over
-- The less important reasons --
4. The way the roll-bar intersects the windshield at exactly half of its height bothers me. (Just a personal proportions/placement thing) - but its emphasized by the blown sky and the slightly different color rollbar though the windshield.
5. There a dark patch on the front of the jeep where is says "mahindra" (a tree reflection?).
6. The center of the image is looking straight into the jeep's "sweaty armpit".
Hope that gives you an insight into my earlier comment.

They are just different compositions, I like them both. The one you liked is a traditional shot, the one I posted was a close up, experimental.
I do confess I am yet to shoot the CJ340 in a careful manner like I have done with Baleno and GV. The reason is simple, it is not yet ready. This was basically a before shot since I am giving it out for paint job. The real photo-shoot will start once it is ready in all respects. Then I will shoot choosing the right light conditions.

The angle is similar to the close-up GV shot taken here.

Awesome shots, torqueguru and stratos. Really inspiring.
A few humble attempts from my side, with pics taken at today's offroading session.
Camera: Canon Powershot A400
A small request: Can anyone edit the first pic in photoshop? I feel it might still have something left in the hands of a photoshop expert.

Last Sunday at Nandi Hill road. Multi exposures to manage monsoon clouds and tones. First one had a six stops difference from high light to shadow..taken three exposures for that. Second one is two exposures of three stops difference.

Nice photos, I liked the 2nd one more than the first one.
How do you combine those multiple images, do you use any specific tool, please explain the technique too.

1. Itís a discipline. It tells you that youíre making a picture and not simply taking it.
2. It allows you to compose your frame better. You can shift, alter or re-compose your frame.
3. It gives precise registration especially when it comes to layer blending.
Tools I use are Canonís Digital Photo Professional. Photoshop and if need be, Noise Ninja. I do not use any filter.
