    those are fucking crisp!
     

  6. I'm sure you posted them on OT before and some one else will also recognize a few of them. I remember seeing 2 and 4 before.

    2, 4, 6 are my favs.

    2 is really great IMO, very centered and the lighting is like dead-on even, looks like you copied the front of the car (below windshield/mirrors) and pasted a horizontally fliped copy overtop of the other side, but the headlights are different color. I'm sure you didn't do this, but I'm just saying that the lighting is soo even it looks like this is what you did. And exact centered positioning make the shot look great too IMO.

    Oh, and I love when car shots turn out like this. They have that magazine/airbrushed quality about them where they look super real.

    Would you mind posting a before/after and how long it took to process?

    sure i don't mind. I used 3 canon speed lights and my 20D.... and a lot of time in photoshop

    I've never used HDR, i like blending/masking the highlights and shadows manually... time consuming, but i get what i want.

    thanks for the feedback fellow OTers :wavey:

    Is there a reason that you shot every single one of those in shutter priority? Not knocking it, I just want to know why you chose that mode as opposed to aperature priority or P (what does the P stand for anyway?).

    Also, how long did it take you do post process 1 picture?

    For shot 6, did you use a rig? if so was it of your own design or a pre-fabbed one? do you mind showing the rig?

    I can't beleive the before/after photoshop, wow you have a great talent. I'd take 5% of that and I'd be 10 times better than I am right now
