Not a pro, so take this with a grain of salt.

But:

For the first, Id like to see more 3/4 shot from the back @ bumper level or just a lil below. Put some light on the wheels (pans, right?) and the tires. Body looks clean from what I can see, so I really think you should show it off more; pull the camera a lil more to the left, and allow the flash to fade off just past the q-panel into the door. Or, bring the camera in close to the bumper and get an angled shot; turn the wheel to the left, to show off the front wheel.

For the front, the fancy details of these engines setups are meant to be shown. Detail the engine bay if you havent already, so it looks nice and blingey when you get in closer. Pop off the cam gear cover if you can so they can add a lil more drama. Try some shots with both hard light and some soft light and see what pops more.

You got your focus tight, so Im thinkg some mild adjustments will make the trick. Get a clamp light to attach to your lightstand, so you can get some modeling light to help get improved angling and shadow adjustment.

And, though its not part of what you asked for, an interior shot would be interesting.

Dont mind me too much, I love those ole skoolers.

Thank you for the comments. I'll try retaking some of these shots. i tried to do an interior shot but it was kind of hard, the space was too small to work with. it was hard to get any detail inside

Also i tried turning the wheels but i think the way i built the model kind of wont let me turn the wheels. lol.
Thank you though. i appreciate it. hopefully ill have time to re-do these tomorrow.

I commented on a photo you posted defending the 6D's AF. You made the statement about its AF, I challenged it. If you had posted a 100% crop and proved your point my next post would have been to retract what I said. I even gave you the benefit of the doubt on your next shot saying it could be my screen that showed it out of focus. Now you're lying and saying I said the camera sucks. Quote me on that.

Please show me where it says I need to be an owner to post/comment in this owners thread, or any other owners thread for that matter. Are you saying people can only post comments praising shots ? What happened to your 1st amendment ?


I've been on here for over 4 years. You've been on here for a few weeks and for getting personnel when you've no reason to. It's a camera thread, no ones mother got insulted. I have no wish to hear anything else you may have to say, welcome to my "ignore list" You're the honorary member.....

The funny thing is, when I made the comments I did, no one defended EverydayGettaway's shots, they just slated me for having an opinion :rolleyes:

I don't have any skin in this game but I agree with this. I am considering buying a 6D and came here for more insight. This is a forum, a place for discussion. As soon as someone disagrees with you guys you respond like little girls and using impotent epithets like 'hater'. Please try to refute the person's original point.

One from my last skiing trip for this season. Taken with the 70-200 f/4L @f/8 with AI servo, center AF point and cropped in post. It was my plan to test the outer points but never got to it because I felt it gave me more flexibility during shooting to stick with the center point.

1. How could you have concluded that from my post? I don't control who can post what, only the moderators do that. It was a nice attempt at straw man argument though.

2. This is a privately owned forum. The 1st amendment only applies to the government restricting your right to speak freely.
