had my buddy do a photoshoot of the car yesterday afternoon. decided to take advantage of the rare nice sunny days here in Seattle this time of year.

Waterfront area of West Seattle mixed with some industrial backdrops. He runs a side business as a photographer/web designer.

All criticism is welcomed. more pics to come........

I think my favorite is number four (left to right, starting from the top row) as we have all seen car shots and this is an unusual composition. I would have liked number five more, but I find the cell phone distracting in the background. Also, in #10, the pole jutting out of your hood is a distractionl, but I really like the background and contrasting colors . . . As I stare at these pix more, I am really starting to like number three, especially with the color tie-in of the roll up door . . . My preference would have been with the mirrors down (minor) and I would correct the horizon line by rotating clockwise a degree or so. This may also correct the disappearing concrete seam on the left side of the frame.

All in all, very nice work and I think I could learn a thing or two from you on post processing . . . Thanks for sharing, KH

thanks for the comments guys.

KH - I agree with your observations. I too, would have liked the waterfront shot w/o that pole coming up from the hood. I regret having the mirrors up in too many pics as well...it does takes a bit away from the overal image continuity, as it tends to break the flow of the pic, by contrasting the image's horizontal left-to right flow w/ an abrupt upward angle.

KH - I agree with your observations.
It's always easier to be critical of someone else's work than take the shot on your own. :) Glad you appreciate the comments, they are the EXACT same issues I struggle with when I shoot . . . so they stick out to me like a sore thumb-- KH

Great stance! Wow.

My favorite is the next to the last one. I like the blue touches in the background. Very nice composition contrasting the unfinished/industrial with the brilliantly finished & polished. But my favorite touch is the 'No parking' message on the garage door. Made me lol!

#2 is best - creates a ton of angles and smooth flowing lines. What can you possibly mean by "criticism welcomed"? Car is beautiful. Confidence baby!

Nice...thanks for sharing. I'm sorry to hear you are selling the car; it seems a pristine example.
