Hello,

just wanted to share a nice BMW X5 by Hamann I recently was able to photograph :

A very impressive car, and part of my latest tutorial I've put together for fellow car photographers.

Very under exposed, cant distinguish the wheel well from the tire from the wheel.

Also a lot of reflection in the paint.

I have to agree. about the underexopsure and bad reflections. The pole comming out of the roof , and the garage door bother me as well. Other than that I like it. Good motion, good angle. Nice job, but for a few details.

Now that you mention this, (i didnt notice before) but it looks like a photoshopped motion blur.

Looks like the tint on the windows was photo shopped too?

Reflections on the body but none on the windows.

At least some of you are noticing it ... I've posted it on other forums too and up to now nobody even noticed it's a total photo shop ;)

This car was standing still when the shot was taken, the entire post processing was done to show how to add motion to a still image (as I described in my tutorial on adding motion to still images (external link)).

The owner really loved the shot, if I print it the shades come out nice, not too dark, I'm also looking at it on a profiled monitor, so I guess it could look darker on the internet, sorry about that.

Anyway, thanks for the comments, at least now I know what I can still improve on this technique, problem was that I forgot to put someone behind the wheel, so I had to darken the windows to cover the fact nobody was driving it :oops:

A small update into which I've put more than 5 minutes of PP, the first shot was done around midnight to get the tutorial online, however this shot took a bit more time (about 35 minutes to be honest)

I hope this one looks better :
