im a beginner...what should i do to improve this?
I like the clarity and all the catchlights. I think to take this from a pretty good photo to a really spectacular, publishable photo, you'd need to get basically the same shot in a more controlled setting where you could eliminate the reflections of other cars in the parking lot. Also, I'd like a shorter DOF that allows the eye to really zero in on that closest tire and wheel.
maybe a different brand of car, Hondas suck
i can see why your a beginner, what is the subject in that?
next time you post stop and think to yourself is this photo really worth it? are people going to stop and say wow thats a good photo. or do what i did and be offended by that thing.
yeah..that car does kind of suck for pictures
I think it's a nice pic. The only thing I'd add is to pay attention to the surroundings. I mean there could be much more interesting things in the reflection than some odd cars in a parking lot. Maybe a neon sign in the reflection...or a cafe or something. Other than that the technique is good.
What are you trying to prove, bunkwild?
What I definately like is the whiteness of the light. It makes the picture look very clear and crisp.
I agree, I think this could be killer taken indoors with the car on a cloth or texture of some sort, with the same white light and some neat ligts playing reflections on the door.
thanks.. thats a good idea..with the cloth or something with the car maybe on top of it.. .. too bad i don't have a very big place to do it..
I'm sorry, but I'm forced to ask; Whats your standing in the field of photography? I see that you must be a pro in the field. Can I see a sample of your work or is there a link to your portfolio??
cypilk, I'm impressed with your picture. I think you have a good potential.

I like the picture. Its so clear! Its not the car that matters. Its YOU. And you do have a future. Try to do this shot by the highway, neon sign or something interesting.
Keep on experimenting. I'm not a nowhere near a pro, but I can sense a potential when I see one!
Keep it up!!
thx for the positive feedback danalec
