    Transformers

    I don't know if this is in the correct category, my apologies if it's not...
    This car reminded me of "Bumble Bee" from the movie "Transformers".

    Very dramatic image. Because I have grandkids...I saw the move.

    I think it's a great picture The only part that bothers me is the black you put on the license plate. Maybe if you used the clone tool or even a simple blur you could hide the plate without making it distracting?

    If you're up for doing some more PP, darkening the windows (especially the side windows) so its as if the windows have a limo-tint would add more punch to the image.

    Very nice work Jacsul. No blown highlights from reflections and super lighting. I would have been tempted to try for a shallower DoF but I suspect I would have made a hash of it. You are obviously getting the hang of that camera very quickly.

    You dont live in Hazard County by any chance. This car and the backdrop immediately put me in mind of the Dukes of Hazard...a must watch show in my formative years of the seventies

    No, Sullivan County. Thanks for the kind comments the only thing that bugs me is nose seems soft. Here's the original.

    Thanks.
    I tried but couldn't get close to it
    Increased the saturation, sharpened it bit, little highlights and shadows. Thats it.

    I want to take a nice picture of my car, but don't know how!?

    I got lucky, I was leaving the parking lot just before sundown so the sun was about 3 0'clock in the clear sky and the car was pointing in just the right direction with the backround in good position. I doubt I could have planned it better.
