great shots...

The one you title 'Smile' is cute. You might want to up the contrast a bit to make the headlights stand out a bit more though.

Nice shots. The the signature is a bit flashy, it draws too much attention away from the photos. Maybe make it black or white, smaller or desaturate the red a bit.

the deal with the Sig is that it is the same one that i use for my wallpaper shots. so it is much tinier on those. I might just have to make a new smaller one for my 640x shots.

I don't think the signature is too bad, but loose the flashy red. Go with a more nutural color.

The car shots are great. I would expect to see these in magazine ads! I love the contrast of the new sports car parked in a back alley. This is very coooooooool, and should be marketable.

something about these images really upsets me but I can't put my finger on it...oh yea it's the fact that I can't shoot that good (and it's not my car lol)! j/k

Nice job, love the close up on the logos. Did you use a polarizer or anything to control the reflections or just good that way? They all look great.

Again good job.

They look really good! Only one thing missing... images 1 and 6 show the car very nicely from the backside. I wish there was a similarly angled shot of the car from the front side. Got one hiding somewhere?

No polarizer was used.

I didn't get a front end shot like i wanted. Sorry. I'm going to do my IS300 shortly. Stay tuned.

Hey, I thought I would give some input considering I do automotive photography for a living. Next time, you need to make sure that there are NO distracting elements in the shot. For example those red and white signs on the wall behind the car are very distracting. Also, don't be afraid to use light to your advantage when shooting a car. You have to use a lot of light to show off the curves of the vehicle, otherwise the car ends up looking very flat and the paint looks very dull. It is almost near impossible (but can be done) to get a silver car to not look dull. Silver and black are your two hardest colors when shooting a vehicle. But, like I said, it can be done. Don't be afraid to move around on the ground and get some shots at different angles, also. Not bad for a first attempt, though!

thanks for the ideas. Since I"ve taken those shots, I've wanted to go back and redo some! I have more ideas.
