    the first one is the best other than the distracting light at the top, they all look kind of hazzy, might want to do some post pro, why did u shoot at 200 iso, u might want to use a polorized filter to even out the glare reflection on the car

    It was only my first time shooting with this camera in a lighting situation like this. What ISO should I try with flourescent lighting?

    in bright light i use a higher iso, but in low or modirate light i use low iso so the pictures don't come out to grainy

    Went back and forth a few times on a 5 second exposure. I know its been around like my last girlfriend, but its new and cool to me. :mamoru:

    don't go back and forth. Zoom in, take the initial shot of the car in full frame then zoom out before the shutter closes. Use a 400-800 iso in that setting and refrain from using telephoto lenses--your 6th photo looks zoomed from a distance

    lower the iso to 100
    speed up the shutter speed just a tad bit. those lights are a little too bright in pictures that you can see the bulb
    set the wb on th camera to fluorescent and possibly use a circular polarized lens for the glare

    other than that they look good
