My uncle asked me to drop the car off with its new owner this morning and I stopped for a minute to snap a quick picture. Sorry the background isn't very appealing!

C&C welcome!

Why doesn't my boss ask me to deliver cars like that :mrgreen:

Next time try to put the car in the lower right corner, gives a more balanced shot.

That looks pretty good for bright sunlight.

So crop it! ;)

Nice!

I tried a little vignetting and a frame. Any better?

The cropping you did Photosguy doesnt look right...too close to the roof line and leaves too much foreground. I like the shot as it is as that's all he had to work with. Looks nice :D

He had the keys in his hand, plus his eyes & feet, too?

I doubt the guy could go driving all over since it wasn't his car. He did say he had a few moments for a "quick shot" before the owner picked it up. But then again I would think you'd like this type shot since it's in a parking lot with a busy background of stores and such. At least there wasn't a ton of other cars around it like in a car show.

Exactly. I had a few minutes and did the best with what I had!

Well, I don't think so? You had a whole parking lot to use & while I said "that looks pretty good", the background is not so good. I'll bet you could have found something better while you were there, or just thrown the bkg more out of focus.

It's not just you. I see a lot of "Just a quick shot.", followed by "C&C welcome!" Take 2 minutes to use your eyes & then move your feet. ;)

What a beautiful car... would very much love to have one in my garage.

I personlly don't like the crop either, and I feel as if the detail in the grill has been lost.

Here's my quick 1min edit
