Those look a bit soft. What was the aperture?

This is awesome! Way to get creative. I need to do more rig shooting. Just currently thinking about trying to trade my 10-22 for a 24-105L...

Hey man, looks like you're doing pretty well to me. A couple of things.

First, the wider the better, remember that in a rig-shot the MOTION is the subject, not the car. That may seem strange, but it's absolutely true. Having said that, you need to go a bit wider on your lens if you can.

Second, the editing, it's not hard...most of the time, it just takes patience. Have you tried content aware fill? It doesn't like when you touch the edges of stuff, so I always clone out a spot on the top and bottom first, then circle the item you want out, feather it a bit, and content aware fill.

Now, there are times when you just shouldn't bother, and your first shot is one of those times. The gradient on the ceiling is going to make this an impossible edit for the most part, and with the shot being so tight, it's not worth the effort. Try sky next time :).

On your second shot remember to never show a barrier in front or behind, the mind wants to see open road, or open distance, so the wall at the end is hurting this shot. Other than that, and being a bit tight it's awesome!

Are you using PS (Adobe PhotoShop) or something else? If the problem is the line where the light & darker areas meet, select along the seam & clone within it.
Look at the Edit-3 links at the bottom of Post #1 in Selecting areas in PS.

Decent size here, since this forum is in the dark ages.

I have been using flickr as my picture host since 2004, never had a single problem. I use smugmug as well, but only for my older or misc stuff. Flickr is still the render king in my book.

Hi guys,

Long time away from the forum and I'm looking to finish my rig.

I've got the boom and tension system sorted as well as a manfrotto magic arm. I just need the rest of the bits in-between. Can anyone recommend me some suction cups and bits needed to attach them to the boom?

Ta!
