Critique Pt 2: Complete Photoset of Porsche 911/930
I appreciated you guys looking at the Corvette shot but the feedback was to offer more than just a single detail shot. This is the complete photoset I'm proudest of. These were also shot at a Cars and Coffee event but the car was parked away from the main event and I got some nice alone time with it. The spotlessly clean paint and morning light also contributed excellently.
911s and other swoopy cars (Cobras, older Jaguars, etc) really seem to benefit from the CPL and I like how I was able to make the curves of the car pop with it. My editing process on these photos was desaturating the background when I felt it distracted and punching up the contrast to highlight the reflections playing over the car. I also brought the warmth up a bit to bring out the golden morning light.
I'm annoyed at some of the inconsistencies in the reflections (particularly over the wheel well in the first shot) but I don't think I'm good enough at Photoshop to edit them out in a natural way. Do you think it distracts a lot?
Would love to hear any thoughts you folks have!
