Can we see the original shot? The image looks good, but it seems a little off, like it's over-sharpened or something, the cars look a little like plastic. Maybe they got such a good polish and wax-job that they look unreal.

Whoever did the detailing obviously takes their job seriously.

Speaking of getting your feet wet, one thing I've noticed in advertising photography for cars is they always wet down the tarmac to give it a nice black reflective texture.

Can you move them into my Garage? I love the pictures, but change the background.

If I could only get my Honda Odyssey to look that sexy! Great lighting on the cars and great first post. Get rid of the highlights on the bush top left, perhaps?

Thanks for the comments guys. I'm still tryin to get the hang of LR4. I know I over sharpened the photo to try to get that surreal look on the cars and it really brought out the shine and deepness of the black paint.

I know the background sucks, can anyone recommend a good location in the OC?

black cars are hard to shoot because of the reflective properties, just remember that when you shoot elsewhere because it will greatly change your thought process on location/angling of the car depending on if the reflections are distracting or not (many use a black cloth to solve this). both cars look good. try and get some at a location more appealing and ideal.

thanks guys, still trying to figure out a new location to shoot. And yes I agree black cars are a pain to shoot and keep clean. everything reflects off these cars. I'll try to find another location soon. was thinking of a hanger but still trying to see if there is a small airport local that will let me shoot.

You might work on that fence in the upper left, otherwise very nice.
