    I shot this yesterday (15/05/05)

    [​IMG]

    Does it look over-exposed/blown out? :?

    Well.. I'm not a "car guy." But I do find this image fastenating! I like just about everything about it.

    Yeah well, you don't have to be a car guy to judge a photo of a car. :)

    I'm still thinking the image is a tad over exposed but I just wanted a second opinion from one of the more experienced board members. :)

    The lighting looks quite bright and the car is reflective so there are lots of hot spots but they don't look blown out to me. Looks like a great exposure...well done.

    Just 2 questions

    1. How did you take this picture? Car driving beside a car?
    2. Where the heck do you find an Opel Astra in Australia? It couldn't be rebadged because the offical Opel badges don't fit on the 2001 model Holden (i know that for a fact :) ).

    The answer to question 1 lies here

    Question 2: The car was a Holden but the owner re-badged it, dunno where the badges came from but I can tell you the front grille was replaced to allow for Opel Badging. :)

    Excellent shot, I don't think it's at all blown out.
