Here are a couple of my car. I'm still pretty new to this, but I wanted to share anyway.

You had good light there, but I'd prefer a higher angle, too. See the links in my Sig, and...

I'll give the tripod a shot next time for a bit of a higher angle, I thought it would be interesting though. The top of the car is probably feeling a bit left out. I did realize I over-sharpened in #1, I was just too lazy to go back and fix it. Would you reckon that #2 is a bit over-done as well? All I really did was bring out the blue in the sky a bit and lighten the bottom of the car, because that was a bit dark. Oh, and I messed around the edge with a soft brush for no particular reason, it just struck me as good at the time.

Thanks! I had been reading a bit of what you had to say about lighting, hence the late evening time frame.

Good start, but they're both way overprocessed and the angles don't work.

Here's a couple more with a bit of a higher angle. I know I'll probably get mixed feelings about the sun in the background of #1, but I like the effect. All I've done for both shots is auto tone and contrast in PS. I wish I would've had time to move the car and do a different angle entirely, but my camera batteries died, and I stupidly forgot spares.

I've just realized that the original images I posted were way too large to be embedded. I have edited the posts with image sizes that comply with the rules. Apologies for my mistake.

Looks good OP! Love MG/DSG. I remember just learning to take pics...photography started with a DSG mustang for me. Then I moved on to a Black GT. Here are some common angles I always loved with the Sn95+ Body Lines:

Thanks! As long as I'm improving somewhat, and not going backwards.

Try something like this:

That looks awesome! Can I trouble you to share how you managed to pull that off?

Thank you! Also, thanks for sharing your links, it's always helpful to see how the pros do it. I've noticed that I can read all I want about settings and whatnot, but I always learn the most from just looking at other photographs.

First I selected the body: Selecting areas in PS.
Then it was all using the masks built in Adjustment Layers. Post #9:
Airport runway shoot

You'll get better results with the full resolution file.

^Cutting the car out doesnt really work for me the light on the car doesnt match the rest of the shot

Couple of things to consider...dont shoot towards the sun always shoot the side of the car the sun is shining on...for example if u shot the car from the rear you wouldve gotten a better result.

Secondly get away from roof tops theyre not the easiest places to take a great pic its really quite hard. Find a wide open EMPTY parking lot this way you can maneuver the car alot easier to make sure the lighting on the car works.

If you want the sunset look invest in some strobes to offset the sun in the background so the car is well lit yet still have the nice sunset background.

and one more important thing..keep taking pics practice makes perfect :)

Thanks Frank! I'm still getting to know PS, so I'll mess around with it a bit and see what I come up with.

Thanks for sharing big_d, that sure is one beautiful car, sorry you had to part with her. I just joined an auto racing club at my school, so when I make it out to the track I'll see if I can utilize the area and take a few shots. I'm just curious, why do you prefer not to use rooftops?
