My '04 Z. Since I've worked here I've admired the scenery. The decision was tough, almost leaning toward the interesting tree that really drew me here (but in the end decided against). I will add other shots from this shoot once the challenge ends. I found it terribly difficult to decide on a photo to use. You will also notice in the other photos that I have added some vignetting, which I like to use to bring the attention away from the background. Man I love that car!

Shot in RAW and adjusted with CS2's RAW importer: bump saturation in blue and overall, sharpen, import, resize, save. I hope everyone likes it.

i like it...maybe because I have the same exact car!

super excellent choice in location. it really sets off this (gorgeously handsome) car very well; the slightly space age styling goes with the dishes perfectly, but then s does the block wall and fencing somehow suit its tougher GRR! nature in the car as well. the sky is interesting and inoffensive, the lighting lovely (though the shadow at the back is a bit excessive in length) and really, this is a good car photo with instant interest, style and ooh-ness that sets it above a lot of the others. 8.

Back ground isn't exactly right and you could have focused more on the side of the car vs. the back bumper. I only say this because I attend and photograph many car shows and I have the car pictures down pretty good. I love the Z though it's a sweet car and I love the power as you stomp the gas. Vrooooooommmmmmmmmmmm

Could be a little better composition with all that antennas... 5

Nice car, but the satellites or whatever they are and the ting on the ground on the right is distracting to me
