    Shot these yesterday. First attempt. Not my first choice of location but it ended up being much sunnier than I was anticipating. I wanted to show more in the frame but there were some cars and people walking by. I realized I need a 77 mm CPL lol. My nitpick would be some of the reflections.. Especially in the windshield but please feel free to C&C.

    Not bad. I think maybe a bit less ambient in the background, and I'd probably lose the 'Exit' sign in #1. The reflections as mentioned... but, overall not a bad set. He's going to be in a world of hurt if that compressor ever fails! :lol:

    Thanks ! I actually took one of the exit signs out but I didn't mind this one. I will clone this one out later when i get back home. I had some with less ambient but I felt like it was just random car ( i.e- I have these exact same shots with less ambient as well)
    Annoying part was that those reflections were ambient light reflections and not flash :(( ( except the windshield )
    Good news is that it's only parked that low

    Jesus, that car is a f***ing monstrosity! It looks like it's been stepped on and the rear axle has snapped!

    Great shots of it though, although I agree that if the background were a bit darker, the car would stand out a bit more.

    Lol !! Thanks !
    I tried to put a flash under the car to have some detail under the car but that's when I realized, it literally sat on the ground. I couldn't fit a flash under it! Not even a PW.

    Nice set....it's just me but I would desaturate them slightly to reduce some of the golden glow

    Thank you. Do you mean the whole image ? The fogs separate ? Or just the background ?

    @tirediron- this is a 5 min edit- don't mind my mishap with the shadow. Just wanted to see if this is kind of what you had in mind. [​IMG]
