    The question you have to ask yourself is "why didn't it come out like you envisioned it?"

    Lets start with the branches on the right. Anyway you could have moved the car or camera to eliminate them?

    Next, the light. Looks like one light placed just off camera left. Not bad but not great. Perhaps a couple of lights would be better? Maybe snooted down? Place one light way off camera left to light the hood. Another on camera right to light just the side?

    The background. Nice sunset, nice train. You're good there.

    Lens choice. Maybe a longer lens and move back a bit? Helps to isolate the subject. Shoot at around f/5.6 and blur the background a bit more.

    The point is...do you know what you'd do differently next time?

    yeah the branches were really bugging me, but there was a big hill to my left so there wasn't anything I could do about them :sad2: I suppose I could try photoshopping them out :o

    I had 3 lights but I didn't set the one pointing at the front high enough :hs:

    Oh yeah, needs more HDR and border. But really, find a different place to take the picture. Tree on the right, the dirt in the front and the bushes/grass on the left are distracting. On some nice green grass would be nice, since it would be consistent across the bottom of the frame.

    awesome. this is what people need to think about, a self critique if you will. i think it would be cool to see a progression of photos(even from some of the pros here) where they took a pic, didnt like it, figured out what they wanted to change and then posted both pics and the thought process behind it, even if its just photos from the same session or weeks apart, whatever.:wavey:

    Yeah man! Victory all the way! This was actually the day before my wedding... Victory did all of the beer for the wedding, but I had to bring it up to the site myself... 37 cases, all in the Scion!

    :h5: as much as I pick on this car for not being aerodynamic, fast or particularly attractive, it hasn't let me down yet!

    that's the fucking truth right there. I LOVE the original's!
