Had the opportunity to shoot for a buddy after he got his new wheels. This was the outcome.

I was trying a new style of editing and also a new lens which was an 85mm f1.8 Let me know if there is anything I can improve on or anything you do/don't like about them. Always willing to hear from others.

I like this one best, partly because of the dark background & partly because the highlight in the side looks brighter. Can't say I love the cement 'post' growing out of it, though.
It's hard to get a shot where a silver car looks bad, but a silver car on gray pavement with a grey background just doesn't work much for me.

Thanks. The 50mm STM is way better than the 1.8II. It's just improved in so many subtle ways that it makes a nice difference. You will love it for the price.

Lol. Yeah I'm not really a fan of the lights either. All of these brands try to make their cars all look the same to capture the brand identity.. It's just too much.

I may have boosted the shadows too much, if that's what you mean? The sun was hiding during the shoot and it was setting as well so the light wasn't strong. There were only a few times where it was out.

With it being winter and overcast the sun didn't allow for much color in the sky so that kind of took away the color that could have been in the shot. I agree the colors are a bit bland for my taste as well but I think if the sun would have come out it would have been much better.

Compositionally, I think the shots are nice. But take a look at your histograms, there are literally no blacks in the photos. With some subtle modifications, you could make these photos really pop.

That's because of the editing style. I use the Exposure adjustment layer and bump up the "Offset" a little to give a faded look to the shadows.

great composition and focus, not a fan of the overall low contrast

Appreciate it. I go through phases of low contrast and more normal contrast myself so I can understand it.
