    Some call me crazy, but I believe 'critiques' work better when you post the pic first. :embd:

    well the first 4 replies other than the one asking about where the car is from pretty much gave me an idea of how bad the pic was..

    but here is a diff one just for you.

    my own critique on the post process is that i overdid the contrast just a tad.

    First off, that's a sweet r34 gtr.

    As for the shot, I'm more drawn to the buildings on either side of the car, especially the one on the right side with the "Keep Out Restricted Area" sign. The overexposed sky next draws my attention, and then my focus is shifted to the car. I know your subject was the car, but I don't feel like it truly conveys that point as the car is not fully shown, and it seems to be more of a background object then the main focus of your composition.

    Colors are a bit oversaturated, but that could be the look you were going for.

    I like the first shot a lot. I would actually try to crop it a bit tighter. Good focus and use of depth of field there. Might even try to knock the bkg out of focus a bit more too.

    The second shot doesn't do much for me, although I have that same headunit in my car, just the previous models silver one. :o You focused on the meters and the ac vents on the top, everything else is a bit out of focus. If that was the main focus of the piece, why not just crop down to that? If you were trying to show the whole console then I would've stepped it down a bit more.

    I like the car, I'll give ya that. As far as the sky blowing problem goes, either the ND graduated filter or 2 shots composited would work. Expose one for the sky, one for the car, and put the sky from the sky one in for the sky on teh car one, and hope it blends good (impossible with PSE2). The contrast was a little overdone, but my monitor's 5 years old so I can't really give ya too much grief on that kind of thing. I like the car shots a lot more than the nature stuff, shows you're more versatile than I gave ya credit. Keep shooting :)

    to be honest with you i don't like this pic, everytime i look at the car my attention goes to the damn door. its like you want to look at the car but the door is just jumping at you, does anyone else think that
