Thanks for the input Armin.

Here's a new one... in this one, I love the scenery... but I absolutely hate the car's angle. I think it's a little too aggressive for this car and the elevation at which I shot it could be lower. Thoughts?

Angle is fine. Dude, you move to CA, and your locations are epic! ANDY needs to get his **** together and go shoot with you!

Since I've been reading this thread, I've been spending time looking at some of my past photos with a new eye. (That and the fact that my camera is down at the moment leaves me little else to do photography-wise) Here is one I'd like CC on the composition:


IMG_3260 by InkyRail, on Flickr

The original picture is a much wider view, but still centered. I figured the road would create leading lines toward the car, but after reviewing the picture later I realized the road is not defined enough to take full advantage of that effect. After doing some reading here I decided to crop it a bit closer to the car, but I kept it centered because I felt cropping it to meet the rule of thirds would throw off the balance of the picture. Thoughts? I can provide the original crop if needed. Thanks again.

Thanks man! There are a ton of sick spots in the Canyons (probably like an hour away from Andy though) and barely any traffic. But I definitely have to go shooting with Andy and Jag one day for sure!

This shot is a classic example of doing almost everything right, but still ending up with a lackluster result because of your subject/angle (and you already know it).

The 350Z is terribly flat and bland from the front, and with the huge hot-spot on the bumper, you've brought that fact straight to everyone's attention. Also, the 3/4 angle you have chosen is too tight for the car, so the side is getting lost in dark, unflattering reflections, the passenger tire is too large, and the stock wheel/tire combo is screaming "I'm inadequate".

Everything else in this shot works (I especially like the light on the hood), but because of what you have chosen, as a photographer, to show the viewer, the shot doesn't work as a whole. It might be cropped a bit tight on the right side as well, but that's probably personal taste.

You're doing very well with your photography, time to start concentrating on the subtle things.

Thanks for the response man. I definitely agree with your points and that's why the photo was bothering me quite a bit. I kept comparing this shot to my other shots of the Z and it was clear that this tight angle was a no go... and a lot of things were thrown off because of it. I appreciate the input.

BTW, I did take another shot that day, just never posted it up here. It's more of a close up but does show a little more of a side and I noticed how much better it already looks. I still think it's a little too aggressive for this specific car... here's the pic:

I agree. Also, are you using any RAW recovery? It's a wonderful tool...

I normally don't. I don't like how it kills all the highlights... I heard you used it a lot, do you layer recovered and non-recovered images (to keep the highlights, but get rid off hot spots)?

That's exactly what I do. I layer everything. Multiple polarizations, multiple exposures and multiple apertures. Many times I only use 3 shots after having taken 50, but sometimes that's what has to be done to get professional results.

I like the first 2, though the 2nd one almost brings my focus to the floating orange and white bar out in front of the car instead of the car. Looks cool but could maybe use editing out?

Photoshop CS5 might as well be renamed "I'm cheating". That took all of 5 seconds...

What do you think?

Content Aware Fill. It's like magic. The amount of effort it used to take in previous versions to get the same result is outstanding. It doesn't work perfectly in all situations...but when it works...it really works.
