WHY?... It looks broken, its super tacky, there is no way it gets good performance, there is no way its a comfortable ride, there is no way that anyone would look at you and say I want that for any longer than a few seconds.

Now on the photo. I think the time of day did not help the shot. I also dont like the background. maybe a fire station, but the fence, danger signs, power lines, and blown out sky all detract from the image. The interior shots could use some more lighting as well. I know that you wanted to emphasis the lighting kit and displays, but the seats seem to be covered in alligator? which would make them a large part in my book. The pic of the trunk is crooked. May I ask what is by the rear tire?

Wow, a lot of work went into that thing.

Last time I checked this was about critiquing the picture not giving our opinions about the "tackiness" of the subject matter.
Im sure someone thinks your flowers or sea creatures are totally cliche and tacky but has the decency to keep it to themself and critique the picture as it is.

It looks really cool lowered onto the ground instead of raised up 20 feet like you always see them. Something different....

If you balance the lighting a little itll look tons better, expose for the sky outdoors, and light up the dark parts of the truck with reflectors or flashlights against white beach balls or something to diffuse big strong flashlights.

I say why not ? If you have the talent and time and money and desire to do this, go for it. Personally I'd go with a black on black, but hey, it looks really sweet lowered onto the ground.

Keep practicing, try to even out the exposures, cars are really hard to shoot correctly.

matts escalade has a fully built LS1 in it and will move, the shop hand built the frame to handle the motor and suspension... and as far as the suspension, its on air ride and rides like a dream, and handles well

love the corpse in the rear wheel-well. hahaha. riding that low, it looks like a hurse (sp).

the first two are pretty fitting, good images. 3 has a busy background, little distracting.
i think you should try the last two with no ambient light, and a tripod.

we were contemplating dropping our trailblazer SS -just a couple of inches-not to that extreme though.
not a fan of the skull theme, or the flames but you can see alot of work went into the car which is cool

I like your second picture the best and the forth one looks tiltled :)

That's actually pretty cool. I have to appreciate the airbrushing since I do a little airbrushing myself.

The photos are pretty cool, I like the second one, and also on the third one with the Escalade the way it is against the background.
