I have seen much worse in this thread that get bypassed...there is an art to providing constructive feedback...to just say it fails, go see my links in my signature...just doesnt come off as constructive. Just my pov...

I agree. I always found that some people in this thread are being pretty harsh with some guys, where on the other hand there were a lot of other pics here that deserved the critics more.

I think he did a good job on the black car, I just guess it would have looked better without the open hood. Just my 2 cents.

Sometimes, "teachers" are hardest on the best "students." If someone posts a snapshot (as I did) that has very few "redeeming qualities," then it might not be worth offering constructive/instructi​ve criticism. However if a particular shot has potential but is lacking a certain "something" that could make it better, then perhaps comment is meant in a positive manner.

Mstg46 did a nice job on the silver one, & I said so. Then the black one was so "highlight challenged" in comparison that I had to say so, again.
I said, "See the highlights on the silver one? IMO you need to find a way to put those in the black one. Have you looked at the links in my Sig?" That's not constructive?

The first post in the "Tips" thread gives a lot of info on how to do that, & I'm not going to refer to "Tips" every time because...
1. sometimes I wait to see if anyone else will suggest a way to improve the image. (Lotsa' luck here with that!)
2. someone chimes in & complains that I mentioned "Tips" again. (What's it to them, anyway?)
3. someone who has read every page of "Tips" & chooses to ignore them is not my problem. As I said right up front, there's more than one way to light a car & make it look good. As long as it does look good, which is why we're here, isn't it?

If you failed than you failed and the absolutely best thing you can do is accept that truth.

The costumer was happy coz they dont know better. You are here to share your work with the best and get critiqued by the best. Small details will get noticed and commented on and it'll only make you better if you listen ;)

Word fail is not harsh at all imo.

Anyway still good looking pictures and cars. We all fail here and there

First, thanks everyone who commented on my photos one way or another. I especially appreciate everyone who took up for my photos.

davidfarina and runnunmann: I could be wrong, but I don't think PhotosGuy meant to be harsh by his comments. I think he truly was trying to give praise on one photo and constructive criticism on the others. Sometimes that can sound or feel harsh. I don't take it personal, I'm confident and proud of my photos and I've heard much worse.

PJ mak: Thanks. I'll reiterate that I don't believe it was a fail. To me a fail would be something that looks like a snap shot or iPhone photo. I do agree it's not perfect, but it's way better than a lot of people can do. That being said, I do appreciate any constructive criticism or praise that comes my way. I constantly try to get better, and these things help. I gives me something to think about while photographing and editing.

Just for the record, I'd like to point out that part of the title of this thread is "LETS SEE YOUR BEST!"?

Thats why im asking myself why people that post carshoot snapshots that look like out of an iphone taken while walking by dont get a comment for posting these, while good quality (albeit not perfect, i admit) pictures get labeled as a total fail...

Not wanting to start the discussion again but i think this thread lacks a bit of consistency

I think the consistency is there, but maybe you're not reading far enough into it. I think some should realize that getting criticism on those particular shots means you're on the right path. I'm the guy with the snapshots, I'm not even on a level remotely close to those getting the 'harsh' critiques. Perhaps I'm missing something here, but it's just a little 'tough love' as I can see it. Also, often you'll find that those that seem most harsh are very fair. They tend to be their own best/worst critics as well.

I had no idea there was a fellow automotive person in town.

There are a few of us here. I assist on a shoot every now and then.
