    Please look through a few of my photo galleries. I need some of the best pics pulled out for a project I'm working on. I'll link the galleries below. Just browse through them, and post the pic(s) you like best in this thread. Post as few or as many as you like. I'm looking for pics that would be good as prints on paper or canvas. I know most of the stuff in the galleries will not be good for this, but I'm hoping there are a few gems in there. Keep in mind I can PS most if the photo needs it.

    thanks in advance!

    quick question: What purpose are you using these for? Are you looking for just the best examples of photography in general, or is there some kind of theme or subject matter you're trying to fit into?

    I am looking at having canvases made by Jared of 8-10 photos, and then they will be on display at a very high end automotive councours event. So I'm looking for something the car owners there will find appealing enough to put on their wall. I can post some of the ones I have in mind, but I'm looking for some more insight beyond what my eyes see.

    I'm going through them now... not finding many that are initially appealing though. Most are very "Ooooh, shiny!" click. :sad2:

    I went through the first three links, these are snapshots man, are any of them even composed correctly or interesting? I am not trying to be an ass, but I wouldn't print nay of this, it looks like ti was taken with a P&S.

    Many were shot with a PnS while I figure out how to take a shot.

    And yeah, it's the diamonds I'm after. I know most are snapshots. I'm just looking for ten or so good shots. I'm not sure I have that many, and that's why I'm looking for help. If I posted this on POTN, I'd be flooded with stupid suggestions. I trust OTAP for their honesty.

    Everything from 04 thru 06 (I think) are from a PnS. It died a death at cranbrook though. Then I got a d40.

    I've found more than 10 useable shots, though most will need some serious PP before sending them off to Jared. i'm compiling a post as i browse through in a seperate tab. hope you don't mind but i'm hotlinking the images directly. If you'd rather just see the raw link, i'll go and double back before posting it.

    With some PS work, it's got potential, though most likely as part of some kind of composite. [​IMG]

    In that series, the light overall is too harsh (midday sun ftl), but you did get some luck when the sun ducked behind a thin cloud when you were shooting the Porsche Carrera GT... but the composition needs work there. Same thing with the Noble immediately after it.

    With a crop, and some pp, this one's got some potential
    [​IMG]

    Eegads! with the recovery slider all the way to the right, you might be able to recover something from this... [​IMG]

    Something could be made of this as an abstract, or some such.
    [​IMG]

    This doesn't need as much work as the previous ones
    [​IMG]

    A quick lab adjustment, and this one can really pop.
    [​IMG]

    not too bad, a touch up is all that's needed
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Needs some sharpening, and a little clone action to the left side, but this one isn't too bad. [​IMG]

    lots of post work, but this one could prove likeable for the vinage guys
    [​IMG]

    Fix the pelf, and a few other adjustments :yum:
    [​IMG]

    This one can't hurt
    [​IMG]

    Clone out the rope post :wtc:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Crop, and clone out the chain rope fucking up that GT, and this one will work
    [​IMG]

    for it's purpose, this one might work well
    [​IMG]

    needs work...
    [​IMG]

    The reflection of the other car in this one is win. See what you can do to pull it out, while repairing the blown highlights in the rim.
    [​IMG]

    Tighter crop.
    [​IMG]

    After looking back through those that i picked out, i think i might like that black roadster :o

    With some TLC, this one could work
    [​IMG]

    you may want to go so far as to PS the background entirely, but the light falling across this monster makes for some interesting shadows.
    [​IMG]

    If you can fix the lens flare, do the same as above, and it'd work better for the purpose.
    [​IMG]

    This one really doesn't need much to be sexy. :eek3:
    [​IMG]

    :bowrofl: PSG!!

    This one's obvious for what it needs
    [​IMG]

    Pelfed, but...
    [​IMG]

    Make a composite of these two:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Clone out fu man chu, and brighten it up a bit...
    [​IMG]

    Looks like that's it. That's all i could find that seemed even remotely usefull. :hs:

    Fuck dude! Thanks for the work. You found way more than I would have thought.

    I'll post the ones I had in mind tomorrow when I'm not posting from my iPod. :o

    There were a few nice compositions that i didn't choose, particularly of manufacturer badges, etc., because they were out of focus or some other basic flaw... like the 3rd from the bottom is OOF.
