very typical Audi, effective and well executed. The silver rings and grill just jump out of the image. Really well done
05/31/2009 04:17:06 PM
I like this one the most. No Slogan, just a cool looking car.
05/30/2009 09:44:36 PM
my pick for the winner
05/30/2009 01:11:32 PM
Cool, works for me

brilliant control of the reflections. lighting perfect
05/29/2009 12:44:32 PM
this is a 10 with title or other modest copy typesetting. 9. stunning shot and post capture work here.
05/29/2009 08:10:56 AM
A very menacing feel to this, lit and shot brilliantly.
05/29/2009 01:07:10 AM

hot sexy shot. bold and aggressive. great light, nice line definition.
05/28/2009 07:40:48 PM
Looks good. May have benefitted from a tighter crop. Not much, just a little. 8
05/28/2009 04:26:18 PM
One of the bests in the show. gotta place high.
05/28/2009 01:32:09 AM
someone knows how to shoot a car. 10 for me
05/27/2009 03:22:01 PM
pretty image. Darkness give it some captivating mistery
05/27/2009 02:39:48 PM
Great detail,
shadowing and lighting.

05/27/2009 01:51:58 PM
great anthropomorphism. it feels like the car is a beast sneaking around in the night
05/27/2009 07:16:32 AM
This is a good car ad, I've actually seen an Audi ad very similar to this one.

The setup and lighting are nice but the colours seem a little flat and almost cartoonish, not sure if it's a focus issue or something you've done in PP. 7 from me.
05/27/2009 07:08:39 AM
I LOVE the lighting!
05/26/2009 07:17:51 PM
8 from me---the only thing holding you back from a sure 9 or 10 is the lack of lighting to define the undercarriage. Either way, I like the treatment and it does the challenge justice!
05/26/2009 04:23:29 PM
Nice high contrast take on this - the lighting is outstanding and the image really delivers - good work
05/26/2009 11:50:25 AM
Intimidatingly BOLD & Stark! Certainly add to the concept of strength in this sports car! Excellent Work! :) 10! :)
05/26/2009 12:50:57 AM
Perfect ad photo. Perfect lighting. The car seems alive. Nice negative space for text. A real winner.
05/25/2009 06:00:23 PM
I really like the simplicity of this photo and that you did not ruin it by putting any text on it.
05/25/2009 08:29:05 AM
YES. This is the first one I've seen so far that really looks like the quintessential car brochure photo. Well done.
