By HectorRivera  
This one started as a regular 2001 Mustang V6. I modivied tha engine to gat 260 HP, then installed a Cervini Stalker body kit and reduced the total waight by 468 lb. Finaly we added a customised paint job and took the picture on the street during an overcast day but with goo natural light. Added the gradiant backgroud the lettering and tha translucent emblem using photoshop.

Quote:On first impressions you have done a fine job of this beauty of a car, which must be a dream to drive but I digress .The overall cut out of the car is fine other than the front tyre which looks a little squared of at ground level. Your graphics are very appropriate and very well done with a nice gradient working of the bright yellow very well. The script font is a good choice but is often the case the tracking needs to be tightened so as each character is connected to the next and does not stop short. I always say if you were writing the word you would flow from one character to the next so close the spacing to do like wise. This may seem petty but as you have approached the presentation like a great advert little things like this just make a good shot great.
My only criticism of taking the car outside as opposed to a studio shot is the reflections on the body work and especially on the window. This becomes very evident as you have dropped in a graphic which by rights should be visible through the glass.
This is the one reason car photography is an artform on its own with photographers spending longer setting up reflectors, light baffles etc. The car would also usually be shot in a studio with an large infinity cove.
Its one of these things you have to decide from the start, good interior shot or good exterior shot. With this shot you have tried the best of both and not quite pulled it of.
Please bear in mind that I am nit picking here to emphasis where you can improve but all said and done this is still a fine effort to be proud of but something to work on over time.
For your interest here is a web address of a good site with plenty of info on car photography.

Best of luck and look forward to seeing more on this theme in time
