Great job! They seem HDR, but it is a little hard to tell. Are they?
Also love the clean engine bay soooo much!
They are multiple brackets but they are not ran through any automated software, they are all masked together by hand and adjusted.

Great photos! I was browsing your Flickr after seeing your Flying Lizards shoot, you are magical my friend hahahaha Really great work though, love your photos.
Thanks, the Flying Lizard stuff is a whole different level than editorial work though. Hopefully I'll be doing more of that type of work soon

Just wondering, how do you clear the license plate? I was trying to figure it out for some of my car shots but I ended up going into MS Paint to do it. I usually use LR3, but overall, nice shots!
It depends on what kind of plate it is and how detailed the background is (i.e. some states/ special plates have really detailed pictures behind the lettering). For a standard issue California plate I'll usually sample a small area of the plate w/out lettering and start cloning then smooth out the texture afterwards. For more intricate plates I'll draw the backgrounds in by hand using the brush tool with different layers for different colors.
