Sorry bud, but I think you need to get back to that tent and shoot again, it looks like you had ISO 1,000,000 here which you deffinetly don't need while in a light tent. Also lower your aperture (higher number) because for these types of shots it's best to have EVERYTHING in focus rather than a certain point. Unless, of course there are several objects and your shooting it on purpose.
What's the EXIF data on here?

Step one would be to get something, anything in focus. I don't know if it is the technique you used to compress your images or what....

Welcome to the forums and thanks for posting. Like others have said, pretty noisy and out of focus, but good effort with little equipment. If nothing else, work on focus and depth of field. The black and white does work for me though.

Thank you for the comments. I will attempt the shots again and post later.

Thank you Woolburr did not see your message in time but after looking at your suggestions and doing some research and further fiddling here is attempt number two. Again thank you all again and let me know anything you think would help.

much better, i'm just wondering as I can't tell.. have you converted to B&W or is that just the colour of the tractor?

Converted. I will post a color one in a little bit as I wanted to fiddle with the setup a little more anyway.
