Taken with a some old canon point and shoot
Posted By: MikesChevelle, 01-20-2010, 11:47 AM

Took this about 4 years ago with a crappy canon a40 point and shoot.

Im sure I am a little biased, but after about 4,000 pics of my car, some professionally done, I still think this is my favorite.

Once I get my ist DL dialed in Ill take her back when the warm months return and see if I can get this pick just in a better quality.

Indeed it's a good one, and next time you want to do the shoot, try to avoid having any of those blown out areas behind the car in the frame.

I assume you are meaning the outside light right behind the car, would a filter remedy that without taking the pop out of the color?

I like it! I agree with Ash on the blown out highlights
on the left side behind the car, but that can be solved
in PP, I think....

It could also be solved by paying attention to your background and not include bright outside windows in the picture.

Nice perspective! Didn't think a small P&S could give you some depth of field...

Sorry Mike you bollixed that one up, it looks like you hit those highlights with a can of spray paint.
You have to be a lot more subtle than that.

You'll find as you gain experience that your eye and what you are prepared to accept from yourself will change.
What you have here is a good starting point.
