    Hello,

    The sun came out today, and I got my car washed (only 2 weeks old). Thought I would try to take some pics. Serious C&C requested on both the posing, and the post production.

    Tried to be artistic on the last one. Not sure I like it.

    I think they are great, especially for a first try. I'm totally unfamiliar with photographing cars, but I wish the car weren't quite as underexposed on shadow side.

    Agree. Not sure I like the perspective of #1, which kind of makes the left front seem blocky (or boxy or whatever they call it regarding cars). Yet the backgrounds were apparently perfect for your picture-taking. Is there some kind of special order form to get that? :)

    Thanks, I guess :D
    He puts a LOT of work into his stuff - starting from "what will I shoot today?" to shooting to post processing.
