v. cool set! howd you get that!
the 2nd shot I would've had the car completely in the shade rather than having the shadow on the hood.
I did that too. Trust me, this one looked bettter.
i like the first one a lot. and i own a jetta so i love this shot even more! did you use a flash or natural lighting? what type of PP did you do? looks good
Natural lighting on both. My post production brew is a secret recipe...Actually, it's fairly elaborate and I really don't want to type that much.
Nutshell: HDR merge for background and layer masked over normal exposure, dodging, burning, some cloning for spots and imperfections, flatten, USM in LAB mode, local contrast adjustment, levels and color adjustments in specific areas with layer mask, flatten, curves, resize, resharpen, save as .jpg. (not necessarily in that order)
It's taken me a year to develop all the actions and techniques so plan to experiment a lot.

im not crazy about the reflections off the car in the first picture.
Very nice, I like them a lot. The scenery and lighting is awesome.
#1 is a nice shot. Only negatives are the shadows on the car and I would have had the front wheels turned a little. Other than that, nice work.
I NEVER thought i would say this, I like your jetta
It's not mine. I just photograph the cars, I don't own them.
I would paypal you 25 bucks to teach me how to post process like that.
I really, Really, Really like the first one.
Seriously, just type it out when you have time....C'MOOOONNNNNN, for OT
No. You learn by doing, not being told. I've listed the actions I use, start experimenting.
True story ^^ I just dont have a lot of time right now but once school starts again I wont be working/sleeping as much so Ill have all the time in the world and life will be good.
There's no exact way to photoshop a picture.
all pics are different (lighting, subject, angles, purpose, etc..) so for him to tell you exact steps of how he edited his pic might not work for probably 90% of the pics you take.
personal tastes (some like photos darker, some lighter, some softer, etc..)
there are many different techniques to get a particular result
I'm sure there are more but i'm too tired to think of them
Lovely PP on the 1st one. I'm still working on PP techniques.
Stunning pics. VERY nice!!
Car pics I actually liked .
