Nice!!!! Is The GTO shot a handeheld pan??

That shot was taken with a rig/boom attached to the hood/bonnet. The camera is then attached to the rig, which allows holding the shutter open for several seconds. The car is only moving 1-2 mph.

I'm 13 years old in my 1st year of photography and I use a Canon 500d. Really enjoy my camera.

A 13-year old with a Rebel, huh?  I don't know if you plan to stay in photography but you seem to have talent for it!

Great work, Miles.  I especially like that you have taken the time to give each photo a Headline and Description/Caption.  Keep it up!

My trusty Canon 550d, Tokia 11-16mm.
This is 2 exposures taken one right after the other.
The sky - 30sec, Iso1600, f2.8, 11mm
Foreground - 60sec, Iso1600, f2.8, 11mm
Rocks were lit by lights from the road in back

Can you tell me a bit more about your technique / kit?

I'm getting nowhere close with my kit (same lens, essentially the same camera) these are great!

I think he used two exposures and combined them using CS.  One shot for the earth below and one for the sky and combined them using CS.  It's a very good technique.  I can't wait to go back to my province to try this one also.  Thanks for sharing.

Hello!

Interesting and inspiring thread! Got me to sign up as a member and contribute. I'm pretty much a beginner at this, but found it to be very entertaining. Just shooting in JPEGs for now but will begin with RAW next year when I buy the EOS 6D.

The first photo, the tree, was taken this autumn. Used a Canon EOS 300D and the EF-S 10-22 lens. Settings: 22 mm, f/8, 1/250th and ISO 100.

The photo with the toy Scooter girls was taken last weekend. Here I used the Canon EOS 40D and the EF 35 mm 1.4 lens. Settings: 35 mm, f/1.8, 1/25th and ISO 200.

that creates some very interesting bokeh in that shot, i like it

makes for a brutal but effective close-up kit, I just ran across this lens mod "recommendation" recently.
