First time in the studio lighting a car ever. It turned out pretty well, also the first time I've ever put a car in another background. C&C appreciated!

Not a bad shot. I'd rather have seen the light on the side reflected from a flat at that side than directly aimed on the body.

Its a good shot but i agree with PhotosGuy about the lighting and i would also like to see the studio wall instead of just black abyss. Good job though.

I suck with ext lighting.. but with that being said, that "halo", which more like missed brush marks of trying to black out the BG is really distracting, and obvious. Also, there's some light peaking out behind the bottom left of the car on the pavement.. its light, black, then light again and jumps out of the photo.

when you say "studio" do you mean that his was shot in an actual studio?? If so im assuming the floor is made to resemble a road? B/c i still see what look to be really faint road lines?

just a bit confused.

Wow, thanks for the great critiques! On my mac monitor those halos never showed up. I'm over at a friends with a pc and they stand out terribly. They didn't when I printed it today on Canson paper.

^^^^And yes I shot it in a studio and placed it on another background in post.

nice shot, I like the first edit more, I think there is too much light reflecting off the door.

Also I think from that elevation maybe if you came up closer to the car and used a wider lens it would worked a little better or raise the height of the shot.

also just a FYI, the GT-R is no longer a Skyline, just GT-R

Honestly I don't agree with a single sentence you just posted.

Also let me google the R35 Skyline (external link) and see what comes up....

Actually, Calcvictim is right. The GTR is a whole different car in it's own right. Sure it's got the obvious "Skyline" lineage everywhere but it's not a Skyline. The only time you will see the GTR with a skyline badge is with a horribly confused owner haha. If that's the case then the Infiniti G35 is a real Skyline and comes from the factory with the badge unlike the GTR. But this is all just wish-wash, it's a sick car. comments about the lighting were already made so I say nice shot and hope you got to take a ride in it!

You ask for C&C and I gave it to you, no need to defend the way you shot.
