Visual evaluation is one of the key elements in photoshop compositing.

I have two different edits. Any opinions on which one is better? I'm only using Lightroom so I'm kind of limited. I'm just trying to get creative and try new things.

There are so many things you can do in LR. If you want to play around the photo, try download some free presets

I recently purchased a bunch of presets but they are mostly geared towards portraiture. Is there any that you would suggest?

So question....

I was driving through DTLA yesterday and found some cool spots to take pics of my car,
but now that I am looking at these pics, the location would look waayyy better, with a sicker car than mine.

Would it be a party foul if I posted my pics up online, then did a real shoot at the same location with a nicer car?

I don't see the problem, but maybe I missed out on that memo. It's not like each location can only be used once - they should be versatile. I have a particular favorite location for photos that I use for portraits, classes, night shooting, etc and they all manage to be something different each time. Each time I go out there I'm still trying to find the right way to work a car into it.

Anyway, that's just my .02.

yea thats what i figured, especially cause one set is just my car, nothing special and the next set would be a car in a whole diff class with some more detailed edits haha

Sorry guys I've been away so long! I had to take a quick trip to SoCal for family reasons, but I'm back now. Here are a few of my own photos of late that I can share:











Time for me to play some catch up with everyone's posts!

I love the first one! I like the last one too, but I probably would've had the car squared up with the road as if it had just traveled down it. The road behind the car really makes those photos.

I agree, I'd love to see the straight shots! If anything if worse came to worse, you could comp the car onto something different so it didn't look like an accident was imminent.

The bottom one gives the car a little more room, but I wish that orange fence on the right wasn't there...

Oh yeah, and "buy a circular polarizer". I know!
I prefer the bottom one, just because the crop isn't so tight. However, those power poles and lines are really distracting and growing out of the car

That's true, however the blur on this photo isn't quite right. The blur on the trees immediately behind the car turns sharp then blurs again. It doesn't quite work that way...

I prefer the first one because it's not overexposed. The red car stands out enough from the background and it looks more natural in the exposure of the first photo.
