Thanks for the info. I played around with lightroom a bit to fix the photo up.

Honestly, I think the car will look much better outside but my friend can't drive it out till he cuts his fenders & puts on the flares.

I'll be posting more pictures in the future as soon as he's done working on it.

Hey guys. I've been into photography for a few years and just recently started getting into automotive photography. I've been reading this thread (on page 45 right now) and have learned a lot. However I did want to post a couple of pics for constructive criticism. The first I took before reading the thread, and the second I took today after a bit of reading. Let me know what you guys think.





Thanks for your time, and thanks Armin and all of the other talented photographers for all the tips in the thread!

^ Welcome! I say location is your biggest problem in both... I used to struggle with it too. I'd watch those parking lines that intersect your car(s). The second picture looks a bit too busy, there's way too much going on IMO. I'd probably use a slightly warmer WB too, and rotate the CP filter to remove side reflections. It also looks a tiny bit underexposed. The positioning of the car in the frame looks good though.

Flickr always works for all of us, maybe you're grabbing the wrong link?

What I did was grab the link under Share, and paste it into the popup after clicking the picture button.

Thoughts on the pic?

I had the same thought as well, but I also wanted to capture the city vibe. Here's another picture from the same place, but it has a bike rack growing out of the car...

^^Nice; The reflection of the gravel/trees on the front right bumper makes it look dirty like you hit a puddle, but that's just being picky. Also, maybe burn in whatever you can salvage out of that hotspot on the headlight. I do like it though!

Good exposure and detail on the white car (first shot, especially), but it looks like the Genesis is a backhoe, with the shovel growing out of the back. Just seems like those things are way too distracting. I'd invest in a grad filter kit to calm that hard sun down a bit and really bring out the beauty of that white coupe. Or, just shoot away from the sun to prevent the glare/backlighting. Btw, I've been lurking this thread for years, but never really posted much. Definitely my favorite thead on Nasioc; I'll be posting some of my new stuff for C/C guys

Thanks man! I did burn in the headlight a little bit, but didn't want to over do it. Also, just wanted to let you know that your flickr ID is wrong on Nasioc (it's fotoforce) and you have it with "ph" haha

Woops; thanks for noticing that! I registered with that URL years back, but recently changed my username spelling to "ph" to match my website (which is currently down). Can't change the URL, though. I haven't shot cars in a while; my personal work is mostly large format film work, so I love beautiful bokeh as much as anyone Ok, I won't clutter this brilliant thread with my little story anymore. I'll add all you Flickrers

Man. Is it bad that I looked at those two pics and knew they were taken with a Nikon 85 1.8, before I even looked at the exif? Great contrast, and very sharp, but that CA really stands out to me.

I haven't posted in awhile, I was in Colorado for 10 days, got engaged and just trying to get back in swing of life! When we got back from vaca the fedex guy dropped off my tamron 70-200 f2.8, new tripod and a 77mm cpf!

Its been hard to find time to really play with it but are the first couple.....thoughts on crops/editing.



I shoot this from the shadow side cause I've found it's easier to get the white car and black wheels in detail?????? Does the fence hurt the pic?



I know this one is centered, any thoughts on the exposure? and position of the car?

^^I think the fence is fine. the absence of the 4th wheel looks a bit bizarre. The picture just seems to need some color. I think if you play with the colors a bit you will get them to pop and the picture will be so nice!

like this...




Sorry to alter your picture, I think that some more color would look better.

That second picture (your edited one above) does not look natural at all. The greens look fake. I prefer his original edit.

Was their a haze out when you were taking these? The car doesn't look as sharp as some of your previous shots. I had to send my Tamron 28-75/2.8 back because it wasn't focusing correctly. The pictures started to look blurry.

True, I didn't really give it good ps, just altered colors for representation.
