OK, so I didn't blur out my license plate, even thought the SC said it would be OK. Hope the Internet Stalking committee doesn't see this... :-D

Tried a "strobist" with mah new whip, didn't come out quite as I'd envisioned...wanted to re-shoot, could not find the time. One bare strobe camera left, second blue-gelled strobe for the interior. Processed from RAW with 9 exposures, HDR'd in Photomatix, some Noiseware/Topaz/Dodge-Burn, clone out some distractions in the sky.

Nice work! I really like the sun shining through the trees in the back! Very cool idea to use a colour gel inside the car! and nice new Whip too!!! =)

Nicely done. It does feel a tad bit tilted though.

Very nice. I like the sun peeking out from behind the trees. The contrast, angle, and placement are all well done.

Nice light on the outside of the car. I'm not so sure about the blue inside : ) I don't know if this would have been feasible, but almost all car ads have a wet ground. That creates a reflection of the car, which makes the image a bit catchier. I think that if you added water to the ground, it would have made this pop!

Nicely done and the lighting inside the car is perfect.

Awesome shot. Makes me want to drive it.

The burning or dodging or whatever caused the haloing around the trees is borderline loud. It got my attention, but I'm having a hard time figuring out whether I like it or not.

I like the location and the way you have lit the scene. To my eyes the shady side of the car appears to have a slight blue tinge (did you get the WB 100%?) and the halo around the trees does not look good a tall. This can happen if you use some HDR packages. If you did not use such a package you need to get in tighter with the brush to darken the sky. There are also some specks/bids that you might want to consider removing.

Nicely done. I would have removed the license plate in the front. Otherwise, a great shot, worthy of an auto catalog.

Nice shot, but is that selective desaturation? Looks strange how the inside/right of the car is blue/greenish, and the rest of the shot looks almost grayscale.

You should've put this in the car challenge, it would've been a beauty, but it's still pretty good for this one too.
