Yeah, I think flickr must have changed their URL scheme.

Try "photos/66702353@N08/" in the NASIOC box for Flickr.

Would someone mind giving me or pointing me in the direction of free monitor/laptop monitor calibration software? As my most recent pictures look NOTHING on my work computer as they do on my home, I very much need some consistency and have been reluctant to do ANY photo work until I am able to get my colors correct.

I very much like this one!

The glare is major nitpicking, but it looks unnatural curving over the top of the passenger side windshield. And if there is any way you could get the glare off those side windows and/or headlights it would help, although at that angle I am not sure if it's even possible to get it off the side windows.

Finally, I have seen a lot of your pictures at this location. For this particular view, do you have any that shows a greater separation between the car and the building? Due to the orange/reddish hue from the bricks, the car kind of blends in.... This was much less apparent when you were shooting against the garage doors.

Maybe some selective desaturation on the brick wall would give your car more 'pop' as opposed to the 'blending' I am seeing.

I do like that photo though!!

Thanks! I couldn't get the separation I wanted to because I didn't have the room with my 85mm. I would've been in some crazy over grown stuff if I went back any further. I need to get a CP filter for my 50mm. I see what you're saying about the glare but honestly it doesn't even bother me enough to attempt to reduce it. The critiques are always appreciated though!!

I might do some de saturation as you suggested to see how it looks though, I'm curious.

yeah, the glare really doesn't bother me either. But, to each their own.

You're using lightroom, right? Maybe try turning your yellow and orange saturation sliders down just a bit - see what happens? Did you bump your red sat in this one at all? I know it is a red car and all, it just looks especially red in this photo.

Time for a new location?

Yes I use Lightroom. I don't think I have the saturation up. Maybe a tad with the vibrance. I actually think the color is spot on in this picture but I use a laptop so it may be off. I don't know if you've seen this color in person but it's pretty damn red, lol. I hate trying to get the color right on my car, it wants to turn purple in some light.

I am always looking for new locations. All these pics were from the same day so I was just messing around with them. Tripod is coming after Xmas so I would like to start experimenting with night shooting!

Toned down the background and also the red a little. I think it works much better for the "feel" of the photo.

I like this second version a lot better because of the separation from the background. Windshield looks fine to me, but overall this is another one of those photos that shows you've outgrown Lightroom's editing features. Multiple polarizations to get rid of the reflections on the side and being able to mask the car away from the surroundings is really the next step for your editing.

On a Mac, the built-in color calibrator really isn't bad, and it worked pretty good for me for years. However, it's nowhere near a substitute for a good, paid color calibrator. I use a Spyder 4 Elite and it's been a night and day difference, especially with my new monitor.

Honestly, there's a lot of things I'd change with this photo. First of all, turn that flash off and use a longer exposure on a tripod instead. A lower elevation would work way better than the standing eye level. You've got trees growing out of the car in the background, and the car's pointing out of the frame while still being pretty center-oriented. The wheels on the car should probably be facing the camera, and the parking lines (and debris on the ground) are causing a bit of a distraction on the overall composition. Finally, the white balance is way off since everything except the on-camera flash is brown in tone.

Inkman, I really like the latest edit with the desaturated brick building. The red looks really good in that background. Great picture.

Guys, after just recently breaking 1000 fans on my Facebook page and we're almost approaching 10,000 total posts here on this thread, I'm going to have a contest to give away a signed 2013 calendar! Here's a teaser:



I'm still deciding on how the contest will work, but I would definitely recommend you keep an eye out on my Facebook page since that's where the announcement is going to be made first and foremost:

I knew you were going to say that! I was hoping you would give me cheaper advice. I'll get there soon though.

On the bold section, are you talking about removing the car to be able to create a composite image with a different background?

Yes and no...that will give you that ability, yes...but even just masking the car will give you the ability to give you more control over editing the existing background to your liking without totally affecting the car in the process. Here's a favorite example of mine...both of these edits involved masking the car, but it's the same location, just edited differently:





Composites onto new backgrounds are great and all, but I'm still a firm believer in picking a good location first and foremost so that you won't have to worry about compositing

I see. So it's all about being able to edit the background separate from editing the car that way you can fine tweak the details for both. Is that a correct assessment? Also, do you have a recommendation of a good tutorial that show this? Thanks.
