Thanks for the constructive crtitisism everyone, I tried to work with the light that we had, was planning on doing this shoot in the morning but that didnt work out. With number 3, I tried to keep it somewhat underexposed because I thought it looked great with the storm coming in. What do you guys think?

Also the mountains were actually really blue! More so than Ive ever seen, and adding any saturation to that kind of doubled the effect but not sure if I like or dislike it quite yet.

I personally only like a couple, I don't particularly like the angles you captures and felt you could've done so much more with that can and background. Also I don't like how the you managed the reflections on the windows, I think they kill most of your shots here.

Thanks for the comments, I felt pretty good about the angles I got, guess I didnt do that great of a job, any ways to improve it?

Also, I originally was useing my new Hoya Pro1 CPL for example number 8. But then the clouds rolled in so I had to just shoot and forget about the reflections.

Any ways to improve are greatly appreciated!

Love hte images. Confused on the first one as it seems like a beginner picture and the rest looks professional. Wonderful work anyone.
On side note, i thought about buying one of these but where i live it would be bad as many people have had their cars stolen here or vandalized which i wouldnt want haha. went with a cheaper car xD Wonderful machines though. One day ill end up buying it, need more room in the garage first though

#3 is very good. #7 is interesting. #1 just doesn't work.

Great location.

But yea, like others have said, #1 strayed far from the rest of the set. Wayyyyy overcooked.

Under exposed photos. Extremely bad halo'ing. Fake DOF background blur. Take the car out again and do it some justice.

The HDR one was a little hard to look at. The are a few very good ones in there. The watermark/signature draw away from the image pretty badly for me.

I bet this was so fun getting to take these though!! I would kill to be in your shoes here!!

What was it like riding in it? (this is currently my favorite car on earth)

Thanks for the comments, ya #1 was more of an experiment than anything else.

It was a blast taking these pics and getting a ride in the 458 was amazing. Very hard to explain. The engine noise was spectacular. A symphony of perfection. It was loud but not annoying on the ears, it was the most beautiful sound. And the shift times were absolutely incredible, truely no loss in torque. The suspension was excellent, the guy was hitting bumps I hit daily in my S2000, and I have to go 10mph over them to not scrape and he was floating over them going 35mph. (my s has stock suspension). The car was just amazing, a great piece of engineering. Id rank it tied at the top of my list to driving the Rossion Q1 for an hour and half to myself. :)
